Fujitsu latest to launch its cloud strategy

Fujitsu has announced its cloud strategy with the deployment of a globally standardised cloud platform.

Fujitsu has announced its cloud strategy with the deployment of a globally standardised cloud platform.

The global cloud platform will offer customers standardised IT in the cloud across the world. Currently businesses often have regional clouds supporting their IT. But international customers will now have the same cloud service at all locations.

The company will begin trialling services next month with October being targeted for its commercial availability in Japan to begin with.

It will be available in the UK before March 2011.

The company splits cloud services into four parts: infrastructure, application, activity and content. The first two, infrastructure and application, will just be "an expansion of conventional services" already offered on a regional basis, said Fujitsu.

But the activity and content modes will be different.

Darren Ratcliffe, chief architect infrastructure as a service at Fujitsu, said the activity and content offerings, which are still being developed, will help business people use the cloud.

"Action will mean rather than specifying the technology required a business will enter a requirement and it will be supplied from the cloud. Content will see businesses subscribe to brokered business services like App Store and they can enter a requirement and be given a service that meets it."
