Fujitsu launches Cloud Productivity Suite

4 Oct 2011 London - Fujitsu has launched its Productivity Suite to provide UK organisations with a private Cloud solution for desktop messaging, unified communication and collaboration. The Fujitsu Productivity Suite is a tailored Cloud solution that delivers Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint and Lync in a way that enables enterprises and government bodies to benefit from the advantages of a Cloud-based approach, while addressing concerns around control, customisation and security.

Fujitsu is committed to working with organisations to help them best take advantage of and implement Cloud-based productivity according to their users' needs and required service levels. In alliance with Microsoft, it is offering UK organisations the functionality and granularity of Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, and Lync, but also the choice of how these applications are delivered. The Productivity Suite is built on Microsoft Windows Server Hyper-V and System Center. Combining the benefits of Cloud computing through the pooling of resources, elasticity, and self-service alongside customisable security and control options, organisations have flexibility and choice with their IT resources - Cloud on their terms.

Microsoft's private Cloud solutions offer deep insights into applications, cross-platform support and the ability to extend workloads between private, public, and hybrid Cloud environments. The Fujitsu Productivity Suite enables organisations to choose whether the service is a private Cloud service hosted in a Fujitsu data centre or on the clients' premises; a shared Cloud service with common components shared with other clients; or a hybrid Cloud delivered via a combination of Microsoft Office 365 public Cloud service for some users and a private Cloud option for others.

Tina Quenault director of Cloud Services, Fujitsu UK and Ireland, stated: "Our customers increasingly demand a flexible approach to Cloud adoption - to have Cloud on their terms. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for moving to the Cloud because different organisations and different parts of a business need to be treated differently. Fujitsu customers can now adopt an approach that's right for them, with the Fujitsu Productivity Suite enabling Microsoft's market-leading productivity applications to be utilised via a private or hybrid Cloud solution."

Organisations looking to move to the cloud can, with the Fujitsu Productivity Suite, benefit from a service which is based and managed in the U.K. and tailored to meet their specific requirements. Fujitsu provides options for archiving and full disaster recovery as well as levels of security which can be accredited by, the Communications Electronics Security Group (CESG), the U.K.'s national technology authority for software assurance, to comply with specific security policies that may be incumbent on organisations or government bodies.

Lucas Searle, Virtualisation and Private Cloud lead, Microsoft UK, added: “We’re increasingly seeing organisations looking to adopt elements of both public and private cloud computing, often using them in tandem. This partnership with Fujitsu extends our commitment to providing this breadth of choice, with a singular focus on driving business value and flexibility for customers. Our comprehensive span of public, private and hybrid cloud solutions means that customers are able to focus less on their infrastructure, more on the needs of their organisation.”
