A Dynamic Cloud – right now, today With the arrival of cloud computing, IT decision makers have been given a unique opportunity to lead their organizations through challenging times. Cloud computing delivers a level of flexibility, efficiency and cost control that was impossible even a few years ago. Fujitsu Dynamic Cloud is the continuing development of the Dynamic Infrastructures strategy. Based on that strategy, Fujitsu has developed customer-centric solutions which enable you to use cloud computing in your enterprise in ways that are easy and secure. It is a very flexible concept that helps IT organizations to meet the challenges posed by their IT more effectively: Dynamic Cloud Services include standardized IT services from the cloud which you can use within a very short period of time. And this is possible without having to deal with the complex operation of hardware and software. Furthermore, for enterprises that would like to implement their own cloud infrastructure, Fujitsu offers Dynamic Cloud Infrastructures that are already pre-integrated and tested. Fujitsu includes best-in-class products from partners to provide highest efficiency and flexibility, e.g. NetApp storage systems. This has multiple benefits including faster implementation and earlier savings with minimum capital outlay. One example is Fujitsu’s FlexFrame for SAP which has been recognized by Forrester Research as a perfect base for private cloud environments. Fujitsu provides Dynamic Cloud Services with its global homogeneous cloud platform combined with technologies from

our partners like NetApp storage. Fujitsu offers unique options, from “as a Service” provisioning to delivering building blocks for Private Clouds, thus giving customers the ability to transition smoothly from today’s data center architectures and technologies to the innovative sourcing mix provided by clouds to precisely fulfill individual customer requirements. NetApp, Fujitsu, and Fujitsu Technology Solutions (FTS) deliver flexible, adaptable solutions that increase your ability to quickly respond to business changes, give you better resource utilization for efficient and responsive provisioning, and provide operational efficiencies that will help you reduce costs and maximize your budget.

»IT organizations today require flexible IT environments that allow them to keep pace with the ever changing market. Our partnership with NetApp enables us to deliver trusted cloud solutions and services for our customers, resolving the burden of fixed costs and inflexible infrastructures. Together, we provide innovative solutions that help companies use IT to respond to the dynamic business needs and capitalize on new opportunities for growth.« Andre Kiehne Vice President Cloud Business at Fujitsu

through new offerings the ability to retain current customers and address new target groups while using their IT more efficiently than ever before. This can be achieved on the basis of a global homogeneous Infrastructure as a Service offering and the provisioning of services worldwide from standardized data centers according to the highest standards of quality.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Infrastructure as a Service bundles the offerings for provisioning virtual and dedicated servers, storage capacities in various classes as well as workplace environments. This offer is well suited for small and medium sized enterprises which we serve via channel partners as resellers. With ServerView Resource Orchestrator, Fujitsu offers resource orchestration software that enables IT organizations to deliver IT infrastructure resources faster while at the same time lowering the barriers for users to gain access to IT resources. Automation of provisioning processes helps to streamline infrastructure administration workflows with a positive impact on operational data center costs. A logical server concept hides the complexity of the underlying physical infrastructure and provides
