Fujitsu and VMware Expand Global Collaboration in the Cloud

Fujitsu Limited and VMware announced new areas of collaboration to empower customers with flexible and secure cloud technologies. Fujitsu is already a member of the VMware vCloud Air Network and companies have been partners since 2006.

Specifically, the companies have agreed to establish project teams to conduct marketing and sales support activities for the global expansion of FUJITSU Cloud Service K5, a core component of FUJITSU Digital Business Platform MetaArc, based on Fujitsu's most advanced technologies, and FUJITSU Managed Infrastructure Service Virtual Desktop Service V-DaaS, based on VMware Horizon. Both companies plan to collaborate to expand V-DaaS globally, starting in the ASEAN region.

In addition, both companies plan to work together to expand the PaaS capabilities of K5 by leveraging VMware vSphere Integrated Containers to ease the development and distribution of cloud-native applications, and to enable enterprises to flexibly adjust their applications in response to additions and revisions to business processes.
