The new Fujitsu Cloud Service for AWS is available immediately in Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA). This is the result of a new strategic collaboration between Fujitsu and AWS. It enables customers to move their IT estates to the market-leading AWS Cloud.
The new Cloud Service for AWS combines Fujitsu’s know-how as a system integrator with the power and scope of the cloud platform from AWS.
The reason for this offer is simple. As they undergo digital transformation, many enterprises are moving workloads to the cloud with a “lift and shift” re-hosting approach using cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). Increasingly, others are re-platforming their applications or re-architecting them in a cloud-native state. Enterprises are favoring the cloud over on-premises and hosted workloads. This is due to its resilience, security, agility and scalability, and to reduce both capital expenditure and operating costs.
It will deliver a set of services that accelerate the customer journey to the AWS Cloud. Those include business consultancy, strategic assessment, and roadmap for change. The roadmap can advise the most efficient way for an enterprise to move to AWS.
It will also include additional consultancy services such as infrastructure design, build and test to help with the deployment of new applications on the AWS Cloud as well as application modernization services, supporting the re-hosting, re-platforming, and re-architecting of existing applications.
Alongside the creation and modernization of customer applications, Fujitsu will also support their continued optimization on AWS. This includes Infrastructure Management Services and Application Monitoring Services to help customers lower costs while also providing optimum user experience. For enterprises with VMWare technology estates, the Fujitsu Cloud Service will also have a competency in VMWare Cloud on AWS.
Duncan Tait, Fujitsu, says: “For successful digital transformation, the two business imperatives are to get there fast, with minimal disruption. By introducing the new Fujitsu Cloud Service for AWS, we are expanding our capabilities in working together with hyper scale cloud vendors. Consequently, companies can seamlessly integrate cloud into enterprise IT environments. With this approach, we empower customers with large and complex IT estates to modernize their applications and leverage the scale, security, agility and efficiency of AWS.”
