Fujitsu and VMware are teaming to deliver the infrastructure that powers the digital world. With thousands of successful collaborations with VMware, Fujitsu has amassed a portfolio of projects centered around virtualization and cloud projects that have had a direct impact on the development of Fujitsu’s server and storage solutions and services.
Fujitsu has a proven track record of providing the best performance for VMware environments — consistently leading in 17 of 21 benchmark categories. Today, Fujitsu’s expertise covers a wide range of VMware offerings as integrated components across end user computing, data center, and cloud. And Fujitsu’s world-class services capabilities enable our partnership to provide customers with complete solutions to their IT challenges.
The two companies will continue to collaborate on the innovations that help IT be more agile and responsive, while pioneering the next-generation data center foundation that improves cost-efficiency, resilience, and adaptability in the face of changing business scenarios.
“To be successful in the digital transformation, it is necessary to embrace new technologies that make it possible for companies to do business in a new digital way. For Akademiska Hus, the biggest business opportunities are connected to IoT, and to take advantage of our large data volumes, we need a new infrastructure. We already have access to 1.3 billion metrics from our organisation, but the solution from VMware and Fujitsu gives us access to real-time information which can create a massive added value for us.”

Through its faster time-to-production, companies can begin realizing the value of their VMware SDDC infrastructure sooner, while achieving sizable CAPEX and OPEX savings over traditional 3-tier infrastructure alternatives. It delivers application provisioning in minutes, while ensuring the right availability and security for each application.
Achieve a quicker time-to-value through a Fujitsu and NetApp converged infrastructure. NFLEX is predicated on easy, modular, multi-dimensional scaling across compute, memory, and storage independently – setting it apart from other CI solutions. The result: you pay only for what you need, when you need it. Key value components include:
PRIMEFLEX for SAP HANA offers a pre-defined and pre-tested infrastructure solution to capitalize on HANA’s advanced in-memory technology to uncover the actionable insights that can drive innovation and better business performance.
Backed by Fujitsu’s 40+ years of experience in delivering fast, secure, high-availability enterprise implementations, PRIMEFLEX for SAP HANA reduces complexity and lowers TCO through pre-installed scalable systems and VMware virtualized platforms that make the idea of the real-time enterprise a workable reality. The experience the Fujitsu team has gained in hundreds of SAP HANA implementations helps ensure a better fit with existing requirements and a shorter timeline between implementing the solution and realizing its benefits.
In close coordination with VMware, Fujitsu offers trusted support services for the integrated hardware and software components, including the VMware software and licensed certified operating systems that are run within virtual machines. Fujitsu infrastructure-oriented support reduces the complexity in maintaining the Solution infrastructure with a well-conceived range of services to meet customers’ requirements and budget.
To help organizations address a quickly changing landscape of end user requirements, the Fujitsu Virtual Workplace as a Service portfolio offers Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Virtual Desktop as a Service (vDaaS) —delivered via public, private, or hybrid cloud infrastructures.
This multi-device/Workplace Anywhere environment centralizes control of hardware, software, and applications, and provides individual users with the ability to access tools, resources, and information where, when, and how they need them. The combination of advanced virtualization and a richer user experience helps drive down costs while addressing diverse demands for device types, flexible working hours, mobile access, and role-specific capabilities that today’s businesses need to thrive.
“Out of the options available, Fujitsu installed machines with the best price/performance ratio, and more importantly, was the only supplier to offer us equipment already natively certified for VMware vSAN.”
