Fujitsu launches Cloud for SAP solutions in Australia

By

Fujitsu’s enterprise-grade Cloud for SAP is now available in Australia as a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution.

The new cloud service leverages Fujitsu’s IP for the optimal management of systems running SAP software, and is offered via Fujitsu Australia’s Private Hosted Cloud Platform hosted on its secure, local data centres.

According to Mike Foster, CEO of Fujitsu Australia & New Zealand, the cloud service offering is unique in that it is delivered “end-to-end” by Fujitsu, with the platform leveraging the breadth of Fujitsu’s capability including data centres, managed services, hardware and SAP application support.

“We have invested in a cloud-based platform that leverages our extensive capability in SAP solutions, as well as our cloud and data centre infrastructure, to provide an offering that makes great business sense for organisations already committed to SAP.

“This is a great opportunity for our customers to maximise the returns from their existing investments in SAP solutions, while taking advantage of the ability to replace the need for expensive hardware with a predictable monthly subscription fee.”

Foster said the Cloud for SAP Solutions is built on Fujitsu’s own IP – Fujitsu FlexFrame Orchestrator, “a powerful management solution with built-in ‘smarts’ to dynamically manage and automate the full SAP software environment across servers, OS, virtualisation, storage and network resources.”

Foster cites comment by Mayur Sahni, senior research manager, IT Services and Cloud at IDC Asia/Pacific, saying that, “On key workloads and business processes that run on platforms such as those from SAP, customers will need to have significant confidence in their cloud partners’ capabilities to deliver on promises of benefits from the cloud. Hence there will be a marked preference in Australian businesses to partner with service providers that have end-to-end services capabilities for on-premise and on-cloud computing across all SAP solutions.”

Foster says Australia is the third country in which Fujitsu has launched its multi-tenant cloud service based on Fujitsu FlexFrame Orchestrator, purpose-built for SAP solutions. “Australian organisations will have the added confidence that the platform has been running in Europe and Asia with positive results,” Foster concluded.
