Fujitsu and Midokura strengthen partnership to jointly develop global Cloud business

3 Oct 2014 Tokyo, San Francisco - Fujitsu Limited and Midokura have launched details of an agreement to collaborate on the international development of their businesses in the virtual networking field, and to strengthen business ties to jointly build global Cloud business. Based on their relationship, the two companies aim to collaboratively grow their businesses, bringing together Fujitsu's strength as a major global player in IT services with Midokura's groundbreaking network virtualization technology, leveraging their respective capabilities and activities in regional markets.

In May of 2014, Fujitsu announced its support for OpenStack with the release of Fujitsu Software ServerView Resource Orchestrator, which can be used with MidoNet, Midokura's network-virtualization solution. Now, by strengthening ties and further accelerating their collaboration, the two companies seek to grow their businesses and expand into new regional markets.

The collaboration will focus primarily in developing private clouds for the enterprise, with details including further boosting product integration and functionality, as well as joint sales effort for ServerView Resource Orchestrator and MidoNet. The two companies are also considering future joint initiatives such as training programmes that offer the OpenStack and SDN skills required to create Cloud environments.

The Fujitsu Group actively invests in promising venture firms through the corporate investment fund it established in 2006. Having chosen to invest in Midokura based on its superior network virtualization technology and market traction, Fujitsu now looks forward to offering a solution that, based on OpenStack and virtual networks, integrates ServerView Resource Orchestrator and MidoNet in order to develop its private Cloud business both in and outside of Japan.

Midokura is expanding its operations in Asia, North America and Europe. By strengthening this business relationship to enforce its management foundation, Midokura is accelerating its entry into new markets with the promotion of MidoNet, acquisition of human resources, marketing and other efforts. It is working to grow its virtual network software business for private Cloud solutions, and is taking on the challenge of raising its profile in new markets, such as training.

"Fujitsu and Midokura have partnered on product development, and this new strategic investment will expand our areas and markets for collaboration", stated Dan Mihai Dumitriu, co-founder and CEO of Midokura. "We plan to enhance enterprise private clouds with flexible network virtualization for joint customers worldwide and expand our joint marketing, training and services."
