"Fujitsu is strategically investing in Cloud computing and with the ambition of becoming the leading provider of Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service offerings", stated Mr. Chiseki Sagawa, President of the Platform Strategy Planning Unit at Fujitsu. "Cordys technology will help us add value to our PaaS offerings and will fulfill the needs of our customers for value-added services beyond the level of infrastructure."
Cordys and Fujitsu have entered into a strategic partnership agreement, where Fujitsu will have the right to sell and distribute the Cordys products, both via Fujitsu's Cloud data centres as well as for on-premise deployment to support hybrid scenarios connecting on premise IT assets to the Cloud.
Jan Baan, Chairman of the Board and founder of Cordys, stated: "We are delighted that Fujitsu has chosen Cordys to strengthen their Cloud proposition. We feel honoured by the fact that the 3rd largest global IT company has selected our platform as an OEM component in such a strategic programme and service offering. We look forward to intense collaboration to create a successful proposition for Fujitsu's customers."
Fujitsu's Platform as a Service offering based on Cordys will be launched later this year and will be rolled out from six Cloud data centres across the globe.
