Fujitsu offers free Cloud trial

| November 7, 2011

IT services provider, Fujitsu, is offering a free trial of its Cloud computing services to small to medium enterprises (SMEs) until 31 January 2012.

First 5000 members can access Fujitsu’s Cloud Platform, which includes Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS) hosted in Fujitsu’s Australian data centres, as part of the trial.

The offer enables organisations to try before they buy and to experience the breadth of the solutions on offer at no charge or risks.

Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand executive general manager and chief technology officer Craig Baty, said the company had a high level of interest from enterprise and government customers since going live in September 2010.

“SMEs will benefit from the flexibility and scalability of our Cloud platform, which will allow them to provision ICT infrastructure and services to match the peaks and troughs of demand. They will only pay for the service they need at any time which will reduce the need to have dedicated infrastructure installed that is under-utilised.”

Fujitsu’s Global Cloud Platform is built on open standards with published APIs and includes 24/7 global support for the infrastructure platform. The Australian and New Zealand service is delivered from Fujitsu’s sustainable data centres, which are located across Australia.

“We are offering this free trial as a demonstration of our commitment to the Australian businesses. We are confident that the platform will deliver excellent value to our customers in adopting it as a Cloud platform to enable business growth,” Baty said.

Organisations interested in registering for the free two-month trial of the Fujitsu cloud services can do so by visiting the Fujitsu Australia website.
