Fujitsu Trials New Concept for Personal Cloud, Seeking Seamless Access to Business Apps and Data Anytime, Any Place, Any Device
Fujitsu Technology Solutions
Fujitsu today announces its “Fujitsu Personal Cloud” concept, which represents the promise of substantial savings in comparison to managed workplaces of today. The announcement was made at Fujitsu Forum 2012, Europe’s biggest single-vendor IT event, taking place in Munich, Germany.
Fujitsu is using its Global Cloud Platform to enable the internal pilot, which will give each user access to their own Fujitsu Personal Cloud. With all services running in a secure Fujitsu datacenter, users’ workplace and business applications become accessible from almost any network-enabled device. Depending on results of the project, which begins internally later this year, Fujitsu will consider whether to introduce field tests for customers.
The Fujitsu Personal Cloud is intended to bridge the gap between legacy enterprise worlds and the growing trend of being able to access business information anywhere, anytime – while also enabling savings through reduced costs for device management and security, and lowering overheads for administration and maintenance.
Benno Zollner, Chief Information Officer at Fujitsu Technology Solutions
“With these trials, we are determining the business benefits of offering users the additional option of a workplace , depending on their individual needs, based on the Fujitsu Personal Cloud. The concept is intended to future-proof current technology by making almost any device sold today fit for the Personal Cloud, while also ensuring that organizations are able to cost-effectively extend their classical enterprise infrastructures into the cloud.”
