In a move focused on enabling customers to build and deploy cloud-like IT platforms faster and more easily than ever before, Fujitsu today introduces the powerful system management software ServerView Resource Orchestrator. The technology is an integral part of Fujitsu’s standardized global cloud platform, announced in April.
ServerView Resource Orchestrator enables organizations to respond faster and more flexibly to changing internal IT support requirements, through introducing “self service” provisioning as the underlying technology for the provisioning of IT resources to run their business applications.
ServerView Resource Orchestrator is a powerful management software capable of automatically provisioning flexible, cloud-ready IT architectures, and up to 90 percent faster in readying a new system in comparison to manual configuration.
System set-up is based on users’ answers to a series of simple questions about IT requirements, and draws on pools of raw computing resources to provide fully-automated delivery of physical or virtual server resources, including storage and network connections, based on customizable templates and a pool of pre-configured system images. This also frees up IT administrators by bypassing time-consuming, complex and often error-prone manual provisioning processes.
Targeted at enterprises that are looking to benefit from greater IT flexibility and cost savings from switching their business applications into cloud-like environments, ServerView Resource Orchestrator is also ideal for public cloud services providers.
At launch, ServerView Resource Orchestrator already provides interfaces that enable it to also access and control the management layers of storage, networking and hypervisor products from Fujitsu and its technology partners including NetApp, Cisco, Brocade, VMware and Microsoft. Further integrations are planned.
Rolf Strotmann, Vice-President for Enterprise Servers and Software at Fujitsu Technology Solutions, says: “We are accelerating the accessibility of cloud-like computing environments for enterprises, as ServerView Resource Orchestrator accelerates the time-consuming process of system provisioning. This enables customers to fully benefit from the efficiency and agility of dynamic IT, without needing to individually configure every component.”
