On-premise IT infrastructure „as-a-Service” offering
Cloud or on-premise? Fujitsu uSCALE, our as a service offering providing the best of both worlds.
Why consumption-based models in your own data center are more than a smart alternative for your IT infrastructure?
As-a-Service for your IT infrastructure - in your own data center? Exactly! Because migration to the cloud is not always the only suitable option to control IT costs. Fujitsu uSCALE is the smart alternative when other operating models to the cloud are sought for compliance, regulatory or security reasons. Benefit from cloud-like as-a-service advantages by renting servers, storage system or integrated systems for your own data center, with capacities tailored precisely to your needs, including an intelligently calculated scaling reserve for peak loads. In this way you enjoy all the benefits of a cloud model, with the data remaining completely under your control.
As-a-service: Scalable, flexible and sustainable
In a recently published analyst research study, 725 companies from 10 European countries were asked about the usage scenarios of asa-service models and what is the role of IaaS and consumptionbased approaches?
As such, the study offers important insights for companies that are currently or will be reviewing their IT infrastructure in the near future and are looking for new, sustainable and usage-efficient asa-service solutions.

IaaS, PaaS, SaaS and DaaS - why smart rental models are on the rise
This is an approach whereby everything is made available and consumed “as a service.”
This service model is particularly common in cloud computing. Depending on the model, this can be ready-to-operate software (SaaS), a platform (PaaS), or an entire infrastructure (IaaS).
It is also important to choose between private cloud and public cloud. In practice, most companies opt for a hybrid cloud that combines both cloud models. In this case, sensitive data and applications are stored on local server or storage systems, while non-critical data is operated on IT infrastructures in the public cloud.
Regardless of the service and cloud model, the following is true: “as a Service” models offer higher flexibility and fast availability, as the services can be obtained from anywhere via the Internet. Furthermore, it does not require any in-house, technical expertise.
And Fujitsu uSCALE is now bringing these advantages of the cloud to your local data center.
Without knowing it, we often use as-a-service models in everyday life.
An example of this are E-scooters and other mobility solutions.
According to a recent survey, 83% of respondents use E-scooters at most once a month. Buying one yourself would quickly cost several hundred euros. Therefore, the use of E-scooter sharing offers is a worthwhile alternative.
Even with IT infrastructures, it can take a long time before the one-time acquisition costs pay off compared to an as-a-service model. Moreover, such a model also offers many other advantages.
