Fujitsu announced it will be launching its Infrastructure-as-a-Service product in North America. The cloud platform is sharing the data center with infrastructure supporting the company’s outsourcing business, as well as its internal ITcloud storage. Data Center Dynamics reports the offering will start with free three-month trials and includes compute, storage and network capacity customers can provision through a self-service web portal.
“’What we’ve done with this cloud is sort of stood up the first level of it,’ Little said. ‘We have – in the Sunnyvale data center – enough room to expand quite substantially.’ Little said the offering will be competitively priced in comparison to the likes of Amazon’s infrastructure cloud, but Fujitsu is mainly targeting the enterprise-cloud market with the IaaS offering. She said the product would be attractive to multinationals because the platform is uniform around the world, which will enable them to standardize their use of it.”
