Fujitsu becomes first Japanese partner to join Microsoft Cloud OS Network

Fujitsu has become the first authorised Microsoft Cloud operating system network partner in Japan.

The company will participate in Microsoft’s global cloud consortium, the Cloud OS Network, as it looks to enhance its line up of services and products that are compliant with Microsoft’s cloud operating system vision.

The Cloud OS Network is an initiative involving a consortium of hosting vendors, based on Windows Server 2012 R2 with Hyper-V, System Center 2012 R2, and Windows Azure Pack.

The initiative will enable Fujitsu to deliver cloud services that use Microsoft’s technologies, in collaboration with Microsoft engineers and consultants. Fujitsu will also be able to strengthen its alliance with Microsoft and expand its public and private cloud services, both on-premises and hosted, as well as hybrid cloud combinations.

Fujitsu recently unveiled an expanded lineup of products and services, aimed at enabled customers to use the cloud with greater flexibility and efficacy. Fujitsu’s existing products and services that run on Microsoft technology will be updated to conform with the standard of the Microsoft consortium.

Fujitsu’s Cloud OS Network-compliant products and services include Fujitsu Cloud PaaS A5 for Windows Azure, a public cloud service provided with Fujitsu’s 24 value-added services, and Fujitsu Cloud IaaS Private Hosted A5+ for Windows Server, a private cloud service running Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2, hosted from a Fujitsu data centre.

Also Cloud OS Network-compliant is the Fujitsu Integrated System Cloud Ready Blocks, an integrated private cloud platform compatible with Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2.

Fujitsu’s Cloud Enterprise Communication services is also provided via Cloud OS Network-compliant products. Microsoft’s Exchange, SharePoint and Lync products are offered as cloud services, together with optional services such as systems operations, support, email archiving, and anti-spam measures.
