Fujitsu Announces Cloud Services Designed for Australia

Fujitsu Australia Limited

Sydney, March 01, 2010

Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, a leading provider of information technology and communications solutions, has today announced Fujitsu Cloud Services. Uniquely combining global development initiatives with local assets and expertise, Fujitsu Australia is now offering customers infrastructure, data and application solutions through certified data centres across Australia.

Fujitsu Cloud Services present companies a flexible environment plus the capability to meet Australian regulatory compliance requirements. The new service, known as Fujitsu Infrastructure as a Service, ensures customers retain control of servers, storage systems and applications, while reducing operating costs and capital expenditures. Customers can manage their own usage, add and remove services and change capacity all through an interactive portal.

Rod Vawdrey, Chief Executive Officer, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said: “Today Fujitsu Cloud Services become a real alternative to traditional IT consumption models with the release of Infrastructure as a Service; delivered in Australia to meet the needs of our local market.”

Fujitsu Cloud Services delivers a platform which is able to respond to the dynamic shifts in business demand. Affordable flexibility is achieved now and into the future with the ‘pay by use’ model.

“By paying for computing infrastructure, data storage and applications as they go, customers can realise savings of up to 40 percent,” Vawdrey said.

Fujitsu has combined its own unique IP with market leaders across networking, virtualisation, security management and data protection to ensure every aspect of the Cloud Services platform is protected and secure.

“Customer data is securely stored in our data centres here in Australia, not in offshore repositories. It stays under Australian law and under customer control. Our cloud infrastructure is fully auditable to satisfy governance and regulatory requirements,” stated Vawdrey

Customers can expect continuous business uptime with Service Level Agreement options of up to 99.999%, round-the-clock monitoring, preventative maintenance and disaster recovery services.

The Fujitsu approach delivers a single point of contact for the provision and management of any type of Cloud Service, be it public, trusted or private.

The interactive service portal allows customers to manage usage, view performance, add and remove services, change capacity, request support and generate historic reports on demand.

Vawdrey continued: “Businesses now have an IT model which is able to respond to business activities and market conditions as and when required.

“The arrival of these services has been a progressive evolution. There is no doubt Cloud has gained greater momentum and maturity in the last couple of years, due in part to the recent economic conditions strengthening the drive to do more with less.

“And the ability of Fujitsu Australia to lead the way in this marketplace with local facilities and expertise will generate enormous confidence in this model and major growth for Cloud Services,” he said.
