Fujitsu Unveils a Major Step Towards Business-Centric Datacenter with a Comprehensive Line-up of Integrated Systems
Press release date: July 23, 2014
- Broad and comprehensive selection of Integrated Systems for added flexibility in the datacenter
- Ready-to-run systems for fast deployment and reference architectures tailored to use-case scenarios
SUNNYVALE, Calif.– Fujitsu, a leading information communications technology (ICT) company, today announces the introduction of its new, comprehensive line-up of Integrated Systems solutions, helping ICT managers make immediate progress towards meeting end-user needs by making the datacenter more business-centric.
With a focus on enhancing its portfolio for the datacenter, Integrated Systems is comprised of straightforward reference architectures and pre-integrated ready-to-run systems. Thanks to pre-validation, these systems guarantee the compatibility of all their components, including servers and operating systems, storage, network and system management.
The new Fujitsu Integrated Systems line-up starts with simple, general-purpose infrastructures and general purpose platforms for middleware, and is topped by systems for purpose-built application integration. Integrated Systems reduce complexity and risk by offering more rapid deployment times without trial-and-error testing. Once in place, Integrated Systems provides faster payback periods since they optimize resource utilization for complex environments, such as in-memory applications like SAP HANA, which are compute, networking and storage-intensive.
The Fujitsu Integrated Systems portfolio combines the company's powerful Fujitsu PRIMERGY and Fujitsu PRIMEQUEST servers, as well as Fujitsu ETERNUS and NetApp FAS storage platforms with best-of-breed third-party technologies. Creating solutions built from best-in-class components, the new portfolio builds on a long heritage of Integrated Systems, such as FlexFrame for SAP environments. Fujitsu is now enhancing its portfolio, taking the guesswork out of system configuration by offering standard and comprehensive installation guidelines and configuration descriptions for its Integrated Systems.
With the new line-up, Fujitsu has created eight principal use cases for Integrated Systems - from SAP and Microsoft environments through to systems designed for big data, IT security, server virtualization, virtual desktop infrastructure, private cloud and high-performance computing. For each, Fujitsu offers a range of branded solutions including FlexFrame, RapidStructure and vShape™.
For organizations looking to benefit from the next level of integration for reference architectures, Fujitsu also offers pre-installation in a system staging center, which ensures that reference architectures are ready-to-run immediately from delivery on customer premises.
Fujitsu Lifecycle Management services help address new complexities in keeping entire systems up-to-date with a service package that manages all components within the Integrated System through their entire lifecycle. Customers also may choose to hand over entire responsibility for operating and maintaining their systems by choosing Fujitsu Data Center Services such as Managed Datacenter, Managed Hosting and Fujitsu Cloud IaaS, dramatically simplifying and reducing their operational resource requirements and afford them greater focus on core business imperatives.
Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice President, Product Development Group, Fujitsu Technology Solutions
"Quite simply, the introduction of Silicon Photonics-based technology means that businesses can be confident that their ICT departments will be able to service bigger, better, faster and more needs than ever before. As a result, Fujitsu envisages that the data center of the future will become much more of a technology enabler for business velocity. The introduction of disruptive technology such as Silicon Photonics-based systems creates new opportunities for environments where the ability to process large volumes of data has, until now, been a major bottleneck."
