One of the biggest challenges of data center management is enormous energy consumption, which results in an expenditure that often surpasses the investment costs for the firm. The Fujtisu Data Center Optimization Assessment vertical works strenuously towards the achievement of a resolution that results in greater power efficiency, complies with a sustainable ICT implementation policy.
Adoption of Fujitsu’s advanced data centers offers a string of advantages, such as real-time power monitoring systems and a UPS with an incredible efficiency rating of up to 90 percent, four-times higher than in-house facilities of most firms. Additionally, Fujitsu’s Diesel Rotary Uninterrupted Power Supply (DRUPS) alleviates the need of lead batteries and occupies less plant space. In general, the enterprise’s data center solutions abide by a stringent set of environment principles and are aimed at a drastic reduction of maintenance costs.
In an attempt to curb the constantly spiralling data center maintenance costs, Fujitsu has established a network of more than 100 data centers across several regions, as a part of its global cloud services initiative. Similar to many global cloud service providers, scalability of storage and backup facilities is a great advantage of partnering with Fujitsu. Virtual and physical hardware can be accommodated according to the storage and network needs of the clients without compromising on economy.
The organization completed its 80th anniversary in 2015 and is currently spearheaded by its president Tatsuya Tanaka, a veteran in the space, well-versed with the needs of the Asian markets. An alumnus of the Tokyo University of Science, Tanaka became a part of team Fujitsu in 1980 and helmed several key roles in the organization in his long tenure of almost four decades. The company believes that his vast experience and strong ties with eminent enterprises such as Panasonic and Toyota will steer Fujitsu to greater heights in the forthcoming years. “Over the years, Fujitsu has transformed from being an organization that developed the products it believed in to a customer-focussed organization, considering market realities,” said Tanaka, during a recent interview with Nikkei Asian Review. His organization will leave no stone unturned to utilize the evolving power of ICT, since the realm will possibly play a vital role in deciding the fate of businesses and to an extent the economy and social infrastructure. A report recently published by the globally renowned news agency Reuters revealed Fujitsu’s collaboration with the multinational technology giant Lenovo Group Limited to invent a strategy to effectively explore the research, development, design and manufacturing aspects of personal computers. It is believed that the organizations would together address the PC needs of the global market.
