Fujitsu America has announced it is now offering secured global connectivity through its FUJITSU Cloud Service K5 to customers of CyrusOne – a global provider of data center facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia. K5 is currently hosted at CyrusOne’s highly secured Carrollton, Texas data center.
“FUJITSU Cloud Service K5 is a welcome addition to CyrusOne’s global customer base,” said Fred Holloway, vice president of Channel Sales, CyrusOne. “We are excited about collaborating with Fujitsu to offer our clients a growing option of innovative cloud solutions.”
FUJITSU Cloud Service K5, part of the ongoing global rollout of Fujitsu’s IaaS and PaaS cloud service, is a cloud computing platform that would enable digital transformation through “seamlessly” integrating traditional IT environments into new cloud-based technologies. The service would accelerate application development and bring together enterprise-grade “reliability, performance and scalability with the cost efficiency of open source-based cloud technology.”
“We continuously strive to work closer with our customers and deliver the most comprehensive cloud service in the world,” said Shobhit Porwal, vice president of Digital Business and head of Hybrid IT, Fujitsu America. “This partnership provides Fujitsu America with a platform for faster growth and allows us the ability to access CyrusOne data centers in North America to deliver K5 within tier 3+ data centers.”
A key part of the Fujitsu Digital Business Platform MetaArc, FUJITSU Cloud Service K5 delivers a comprehensive set of technologies designed to enable organizations to develop and deploy new cloud-native applications – dubbed ‘Fast IT’ or Systems of Engagement.
At the same time, FUJITSU Cloud Service K5 would allow CyrusOne customers to exploit the value of their traditional or ‘Robust IT’ installations, also known as Systems of Record, through “seamless and consistent” integration into new cloud applications. As a result, Fujitsu would enable organizations to capture the value in their legacy systems when modernizing IT environments.
CyrusOne customers would be enabled to take advantage of K5 capabilities in the areas of application integration and development, as well as the wider capabilities of MetaArc in leveraging automated multi-cloud delivery and management, extended across all popular cloud platforms.
Available in four delivery models – public cloud, virtual private hosted, dedicated and dedicated on-premise – K5 is a single, “agile” cloud architecture using the same approach for all versions. These are all underpinned with 99.99 percent availability, SLAs and enterprise-grade support to deliver “mission critical” systems from the cloud.
