Fujitsu to offer IaaS service in North America

Interested organizations can sign up for a free three-month trial of the infrastructure-as-a-service offering

Fujitsu is launching its infrastructure-as-a-service offering in North America in a few months, and will start offering interested customers a free trial next week.

Beginning on May 31, organizations can sign up for a free three-month trial of the service. On Sept. 1, the service will become generally available.

Interested customers can sign up for the service online, and Fujitsu suggests they use it to try out application testing and development as well as processing for workloads like data analytics.

Fujitsu already offers an IaaS service in Japan, Australia, Singapore and the U.K. Expanding into the U.S. means that multinational companies can access the service locally in multiple locations, the company said.

It will offer the North America service from a data center in Silicon Valley with 24-7 support.

The service works with Microsoft, Linux and CentOS applications. Fujitsu said the platform is built on open standards, although it did not say which.

The company also offers consulting services and can help companies transition workloads to the cloud, it said.

Fujitsu did not disclose costs for users, saying that the service would be competitively priced based on usage of compute, storage, Internet communications and software.

Fujitsu joins a growing list of companies offering IaaS services, including Amazon, Rackspace, Joyent, GoGrid and others.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
