Fujitsu has launched a cloud service in Thailand. Announcing this, the company said it will deliver 'high-quality and exceptionally reliable private cloud environments' from its data centre in Thailand.
The service will be targeting Japanese small and medium-sized enterprises based in Thailand.
Since establishing a data centre in Thailand in 2008, Fujitsu has been offering customers in that market, mainly affiliates of Japanese companies, a secure computing environment and high-quality operations management services.
Fujitsu said in a statement that its cloud service is ideal for customers who want to start small in terms of an ICT environment but quickly build their capabilities.
By using this service, customers newly entering the Thai market can immediately build a stable ICT platform, the company sources said in a statement.
Fujitsu offers data centre services at over 100 locations worldwide - including 68 in Japan and at over 40 other countries - from four main data centres. Two of these data centres in Japan, as well as at primary locations outside Japan - the U.K., Germany, Singapore, Australia and the U.S. - provide cloud services.
Previously, Fujitsu and Fujitsu Systems Business (Thailand) had proposed cloud services from Japan or Singapore for customers in Thailand. Now, however, the Fujitsu data centre in Thailand has been equipped with a private cloud platform (hosted service) to offer highly reliable ICT services through its new cloud service. This service will be known more broadly as the FUJITSU Cloud IaaS Private Cloud service, offered under the FUJITSU Cloud Initiative, Fujitsu's new systematic approach to cloud products and services announced on 14 May 2013.
These services can also be used for disaster risk mitigation measures or to enable business systems to accommodate wide fluctuations in demand. They can also be used when customers in Thailand upgrade their existing systems or consolidate their servers.
Fujitsu said it has priced the services in such a way that they are affordable in the Thai market. The service provides both flexible IaaS that can be tailored to the unique characteristics of a customer's business, as well as highly versatile business applications loaded with roughly 10 types of SaaS, including mail service and ERP service, in an IaaS environment.
