SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujitsu America, Inc. today announces that it has reached an agreement with Oracle that enables Fujitsu to offer Oracle Cloud services to its customers in the Americas, including Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (IaaS), Oracle Cloud Platform (PaaS) and Oracle Cloud at Customer. The agreement marks an extension of the Diamond Partnership1 between the companies by adding Fujitsu as an Oracle Cloud Managed Service Provider (MSP).
Under the MetaArc® suite of services, Fujitsu offers a robust portfolio of hybrid IT and digital enablement services designed to speed customer adoption of cloud and drive their modernization journey. Fujitsu helps customers find the right cloud landing zone for each of their workloads, often recommending partner cloud services like Oracle Cloud, in addition to the open, agile, and cost-effective Fujitsu Enterprise Cloud Service K5® and other cloud services. In this way, Fujitsu customers are assured that they have the information they need to make an informed decision about which cloud service best suits their needs.
Building on that approach, this new MSP agreement means that Fujitsu will be able to directly provide Oracle Cloud Services to customers as part of any hybrid IT or modernization project. The menu of Fujitsu Services that complement the Oracle Cloud include:
Cloud assessment and migration services
Cloud workload management for Oracle and many other public and private cloud systems
Hybrid IT integration and orchestration services, ideal when multiple cloud and legacy systems need to work together
"Many existing Oracle customers want to adopt and migrate to cloud-based systems and/or modernize their Oracle-based applications, while adding Oracle PaaS to extend the functionality of their applications for the new digital world," says Alex Attal, head of Digital Services and Incubation, Fujitsu America, Inc. "However, most enterprises struggle to have the internal expertise needed to move quickly to adopt cloud and leverage all of the new digital capabilities available today. That is where Fujitsu comes to the rescue – and this new MSP agreement gives us another tool to help our customers reach their goals."
"Oracle and Fujitsu have a fruitful relationship spanning many years with shared areas of expertise, including engineering, product development and distributions," says Sanjay Sinha, vice president of platform products, Oracle. "With Fujitsu providing managed services for Oracle Cloud, customers get operational excellence in not only migrating their workloads to Oracle Cloud but also on-going maintenance and management. I look forward to hearing many customer success stories stemming from this agreement, and further strengthening the Oracle and Fujitsu alliance on all fronts as we help organizations navigate an increasingly digital landscape."
The Oracle Cloud Managed Service Provider (MSP) program identifies and recognizes partners who have skills, tools and processes to build, deploy, run, and manage Oracle and non-Oracle workloads on Oracle Cloud Platform.
