Fujitsu is to launch a new consulting service next month, aimed at universities and research institutes wanting to hop on the grid-computing bandwagon.

The service includes construction of a grid-computing environment and training and operational support of the system and network.

The service is, primarily, aimed at existing customers that want to establish computing grids - systems that tie together multiple servers, storage systems, databases and other resources across a computer network.

For customers wishing or needing to buy equipment, the service will offer Fujitsu's range of Primepower servers, which run Sun Microsystems' Solaris operating system, Primergy Intel-based servers running Linux and VPP series supercomputers.

The initial focus will be on Japan, but the company does not rule out working overseas, said Bob Pomeroy, a company spokesman.

Fujitsu is already participating in Unicore, a part of the European EuroGrid research project, and is involved in the Global Grid Forum in addition to its work in Japan, where it is involved with several university and public sector grid computing trials.
