Fujitsu Launches Storage Software Company
Fujitsu Limited this week announced the launch of Fujitsu Software Technology Corporation (Fujitsu Softek), a new U.S.-based company designed to capitalize on the rapidly growing worldwide storage management software market.
According to Fujitsu, Softek was formed out of its wholly owned subsidiary, Amdahl Corporation and is part of the overall realignment of Fujitsu's North American IT infrastructure and services strategy. The new company will develop and market vendor-independent storage management software, including SAN management, storage virtualization and business continuance solutions, adding to products, such as Softek TDMF and Softek DR Manager software products, carried over from Amdahl's portfolio.
"The establishment of Fujitsu Softek is a key step in our reorganization aimed at expanding Fujitsu's IT platform and services business, particularly in the crucial North American market," said Amdahl President and CEO Yasushi Tajiri. "Leveraging the resources and R&D strengths of the Fujitsu Group, Fujitsu Softek will play a central role in aggressively growing Fujitsu's market share and revenues in the North American and European marketplaces, which together represent 85% of the worldwide storage management software market."
