Fujitsu launches Hybrid Cloud Services for Microsoft Windows Azure customers

16 Nov 2011 London - Fujitsu has introduced Hybrid Cloud Services for Microsoft Windows Azure, an extension of Fujitsu's global Cloud portfolio and its relationship with Microsoft. The offering enables government and enterprise customers to benefit from hybrid Cloud solutions and in doing so achieve operating cost reductions of typically 30% or more.

Hybrid Cloud Services gives organisations choice when they embark on a Cloud strategy, putting their workloads and data wherever it is most appropriate for them - in a public, private, or mixed environment. The solution helps companies address the challenges of interoperability, data security, governance and compliance when delivering across multiple platforms. Fujitsu delivers this through a comprehensive array of tooling; management and support services, and reference architectures to help customers manage their applications and data in the most effective and cost efficient way.

The new Hybrid Cloud Services launched by Fujitsu offers comprehensive services to address the significant market potential in industry and government sectors that require a broader range of Cloud deployment options, including hybrid options, within their business and IT environments. "Our research shows public sector organisations in most countries are concerned about data security", stated Frank Gens, chief analyst, IDC. "Providing options to meet this concern could open up a much larger market for public Cloud services and in our opinion is definitely a trend to watch."

Hybrid Cloud Services from Fujitsu links Microsoft Windows Azure-based components to Windows Server-based components running either in a customer's premises or a Fujitsu Cloud platform. This component portability enables Fujitsu to run an enterprise or government application in Windows Azure using data generated in one or more customer locations and to hold that data securely in a location of the customer's choice. Specifically, this addresses the need for government organizations to comply with national data regulations.

Fujitsu is launching these Cloud services in five countries - the UK, USA, Australia, Spain and Canada, with more to follow soon. "Hybrid Cloud services provide another important addition to the Fujitsu Cloud Portfolio and we are excited that we can now provide customers with a higher level of cost saving and flexibility from multiple Cloud integration", stated David Leen, principal consultant, Fujitsu UK and Ireland. "Hybrid Cloud Services builds on our extensive experience in delivering Windows Azure services including the world's first independently managed Microsoft Windows Azure cloud environment delivered from the Fujitsu Global Cloud platform in Japan."

Doug Hauger, Windows Azure general manager, from Microsoft Corporation stated: "These new Cloud options from Fujitsu demonstrate the potential for offering public Cloud services with value-added service techniques to deliver sophisticated cloud solutions that meet customers' specific needs. The hybrid Cloud model from Fujitsu, which uses the Microsoft Windows Azure platform, shows how our work together will address key customer needs such as integration with on-premise systems or specific security requirements."
