Fujitsu Cloud Services Deployed by Chiba Institute of Technology for Specialized Science & Engineering Learning Environment

Building flexible learning environment to be utilized anytime and anywhere

Fujitsu Limited,Chiba Institute of Technology

Tokyo, October 31, 2011

Fujitsu Limited and Chiba Institute of Technology today announced that they have recently joined forces to build a cloud-based virtual desktop environment for the institute's Shibazono Campus.

The new environment will allow students to use CAD and design applications in their studies and development coursework, at anytime and anywhere. In addition, Chiba Institute of Technology will be able to improve the operating efficiency of its ICT resources, reduce overall costs, and enhance security.

This is the first instance that Fujitsu's cloud-based Workplace LCM virtual Desktop as a Service (DaaS) has been employed in a university setting.

Chiba Institute of Technology has also looked at using the environment in advanced courses, such as electronics/mechatronics integrated design technology classes. It will also be testing the deployment of Fujitsu's "Engineering Cloud" for next-generation manufacturing, which the company plans to roll out, in a classroom setting.

In the future, Chiba Institute of Technology plans to further enhance its ICT infrastructure by leveraging cloud virtualization for its entire Shibazono Campus and expanding the technology to its Tsudanuma Campus.

Background to Deployment

With the economy and industry becoming increasingly competitive, Chiba Institute of Technology strives to cultivate highly-talented individuals who will flourish under such an environment. To fulfill this goal, the institute has undertaken a number of initiatives, including strengthening its student support; expanding its academic curriculum, beginning with pre-admission education; promoting its carrier support services; and enhancing its campus facilities. As part of these efforts, and in order to offer high-quality education resources that can be conveniently accessed, Chiba Institute of Technology recently developed a cloud-based virtual desktop environment for its Shibazono Campus.

New Cloud-Based Virtual Desktop Environment

By providing a cloud-based virtual desktop environment, students can study and access development coursework—while effectively utilizing their time—by connecting to the datacenter at any time or place, instead of only being able to work at the information processing laboratory on the Shibazono Campus.

In addition to enabling application deployment and upgrades for all users to be performed at once, the virtual PC approach allows each student to be equipped with a PC environment which, in the future, will be able to be used from home.

Fujitsu Workplace LCM

This service provides total support for all of an organization's ICT resources, including computers, printers, multifunction devices, and onsite servers, over their complete lifecycle of planning, design, deployment, operation, and decommissioning, while making maximum use of the cloud platform hosted at Fujitsu's datacenters. It is an outsourcing service under which a variety of tasks are handled for a monthly charge, including procurement and deployment of heterogeneous, multivendor ICT resources, daily operations, and migrations to the latest product versions.

Testing Fujitsu's "Engineering Cloud" Environment for Next-Generation Manufacturing

Fujitsu is conducting field tests of its Engineering Cloud environment for next-generation manufacturing, within a university setting for the first time. The environment is based on the integrated CAD concept that brings together electrical and mechanical design features that Fujitsu developed for in-house use. Fujitsu's software suite, which supports manufacturers with CAD, PDM, and digital mockups, along with other revolutionary new services for manufacturing, are provided as a cloud service from Fujitsu's datacenters.

In field testing this system, Chiba Institute of Technology looks forward to utilizing the latest technology offered by Fujitsu for manufacturing processes. The institute will realize a PC environment that enables high-speed processing of CAD and video, which previously were not suited for cloud environments.

Chiba Institute of Technology hopes that the system will further connect to the learning process of manufacturing in the future.
