Fujitsu

Tokyo, April 18, 2012

Fujitsu Limited today announced that it has enhanced its solutions for the Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track program for building private clouds. The new enhancements to the solutions incorporate the latest version of Fujitsu's dynamic resource management software, ServerView Resource Orchestrator, as well as Fujitsu's latest PRIMERGY servers and System Center 2012. Fujitsu will sell the new solutions starting in July.

These solutions provide organizations with the servers, storage, networking equipment and management software they need to build a private cloud, all of which have been validated for Microsoft environments and come pre-configured. Since November 2010, Fujitsu has offered Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track solutions to enable the quick implementation of private cloud environments based on Microsoft's Hyper-V Windows Server.

With this offering, customers can choose a system scaled to their needs. The system design has been streamlined, while pre-testing and setup have been completed, enabling quick deployment and stable operation.

The enhanced solutions will be exhibited at the Microsoft Management Summit 2012.

Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track Details

Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track is a program whereby Microsoft and selected hardware providers jointly test hardware and software configurations optimized for private clouds. Those that qualify are then made available as operationally validated reference platforms. In addition, the Fast Track program provides guidelines on deployment and operation. This has major benefits in reducing deployment costs, shortening implementation time and ensuring stable system operation.

Comment from Bill Laing, Vice President, Server and Cloud, at Microsoft Corp

As an initial launch participant in the Private Cloud Fast Track program, Fujitsu is offering customers a reference architecture and solution built on Microsoft's proven technologies: Windows Server, Windows Server Hyper-V and System Center. We're pleased to offer our mutual customers a fast, agile, and affordable way to implement a customized private cloud.

Fujitsu Solution Features

1. Flexible, scalable private cloud platform

The hardware and software offered as part of this solution includes Fujitsu's PRIMERGY BX900 blade server system, with industry-leading server density and ETERNUS storage systems, as the flexible data safe offering a complete range of efficient and high performance storage. Also featured is ServerView Resource Orchestrator, Fujitsu's dynamic resource-management software which ensures flexible resource use and management. These are combined to provide the stability and system scalability that will best respond to organizational requirements and growth.

2. Pre-tested combinations for quick deployment and stable operation

Simply by answering questions on their particular system requirements, users are able to select the right pre-tested configurations that best meet their needs. In addition, as Fujitsu delivers the hardware pre-configured and the operating system and software pre-installed and preset, the implementation workload for system deployment is minimized. This allows users to operate their systems in a stable manner.

Fujitsu will be exhibiting the extended solutions at the Microsoft Management Summit 2012 taking place in Las Vegas from April 16-20. Further information about Fujitsu's Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track is available online at: http://ts.fujitsu.com/fast_track
