Fujitsu Public Cloud Service Wins Green IT Award
FGCP/S5 service recognized for its significant energy savings
Tokyo, October 01, 2012
Fujitsu today announced that, as part of the Green IT Awards 2012 presented by Japan's Green IT Promotion Council, it has received the Commerce and Information Policy Bureau Director-General Award in the category of "Savings in Society's Energy Consumption by IT" for its public cloud service, Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform/S5 (FGCP/S5). The award was presented in recognition of the lower energy usage enabled by the global expansion of FGCP/S5 and its innovative service model.
About the Green IT Award
The Green IT Award was established to honor the development and application of IT equipment, services and solutions that reduce energy consumption, with the aim of increasing the prevalence of eco-friendly green IT and bringing about a society that values environmental preservation while achieving economic growth.
The FGCP/S5 service draws on the large-scale server and storage resources installed in Fujitsu datacenters to provide customers with their own dedicated virtual platform environment via a network connection. This enables them to use the resources they need right when they are needed.
The FGCP/S5 service involves virtual servers, and as such it offers customers the same level of security and reliability as dedicated physical servers. Since the expansion of the service to six locations around the world (Japan, Australia, Singapore, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany) in June 2011, it has made a significant contribution to reducing energy usage on a global basis, decreasing the volume of CO2 emissions by approximately thirty thousand tons per year, while also reducing the space required for ICT resources.
