. Following a successful pilot in the EMEIA (Europe, Middle East, India and Africa) region, Fujitsu has now confirmed plans for global rollout of the comprehensive hyper-converged enterprise cloud platform, which spans from private to hybrid cloud to the network edge, and scales from a single node, with no maximum.
Christian Leutner, Head of EMEIA Product Sales at Fujitsu says: “In launching the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on PRIMERGY appliance, one of our priorities was to reduce complexity and enable our customers to leverage one high-performance enterprise cloud that embraces everything – private, edge and hybrid– while still being easy to deploy and manage. This all-in-one approach enables the seamless orchestration of applications and resources, while at the same time reducing the total cost of IT infrastructure ownership.”
A flexible hyper-converged solution for all cloud services
Fujitsu’s Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on PRIMERGY appliance features compatibility with leading hyper-scale hybrid cloud services, plus support for industry-leading hypervisors – including VMware ESXi and the free Nutanix AHV hypervisor. Outstanding versatility and scalability allow the Fujitsu appliance to be a cost-effective platform for a wide variety of needs – not only software-defined enterprise data centers and hyper-converged business applications, but also virtual desktop infrastructures, dedicated block storage and ROBO (Remote Office / Branch Office) scenarios.
Shipped ready-to-run, the solution is pre-configured to allow service levels to remain consistent, with integrated automatic load balancing and built-in resiliency. Fujitsu Infrastructure Manager (ISM)
software provides converged infrastructure lifecycle management from a single console.

By combining hardware from Fujitsu, one of the largest server providers in the world, with Nutanix’s industry-leading software, joint Nutanix and Fujitsu customers can now create a successful and simple hybrid and multi-cloud environment.
