ServiceMesh Expands Enterprise Hybrid Clouds with Fujitsu

ServiceMesh, provider of the market-leading enterprise cloud platform for Global 2000 companies, today announced support for Fujitsu’s Global Cloud Platform, giving ServiceMesh customers access to Fujitsu’s global, on-demand cloud computing footprint. The new capabilities enable ServiceMesh customers to leverage Fujitsu’s Global Cloud as part of their hybrid cloud strategies to reduce the cost and time-to-market for delivery of enterprise IT services. Enterprises use ServiceMesh’s Agility Platform to provide cloud governance, policy management, security, and workflow automation in hybrid environments spanning multiple internal and external clouds using a single management interface. The Agility Platform now provides business users with fully governed, self-service access to Fujitsu’s Global Cloud resources, while giving enterprise managers the confidence that appropriate policy controls will be enforced across all cloud workloads regardless of the target deployment environment.

“The Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform provides fully configurable, on-demand IT infrastructure delivered via our global network of data centers — in Japan, Australia, the USA, Germany, the UK and Singapore — to provide cost-effective yet reliable and secure access to Infrastructure-as-a-Service,” said Cameron McNaught, Senior Vice President Cloud, Fujitsu Global Business Group. “We are delighted at the ServiceMesh announcement, which gives enterprise customers an easy way to build and deploy applications across our global network of cloud platforms, enabling them to meet local data residency and compliance requirements.”

Fujitsu is a global leader in IT systems and services, and one of the three largest IT services providers in the world. The Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform is delivered through Fujitsu data centers located around the world to provide reliable, highly-secure, low latency Infrastructure-as-a-Service capabilities designed to meet demanding enterprise requirements.

The ServiceMesh Agility Platform helps enterprise customers transition to a more agile IT operating model by empowering business units with self-service provisioning and management of standardized and fully governed IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS offerings to improve business agility and lower operating costs. The Agility Platform enables companies to govern and manage the lifecycle and delivery of these services across hybrid cloud architectures, including internal and external, private and public clouds. The integration of Fujitsu’s Global Cloud Platform provides ServiceMesh customers with additional cloud deployment options to better optimize global workload placement, and enables existing Fujitsu customers to readily leverage the industry’s market leading enterprise cloud platform to govern and manage their cloud workloads.

“Enterprise customers need the flexibility to access high-performance and cost effective cloud-based IT resources around the world,” said Dave Roberts, vice president of strategy at ServiceMesh. “Fujitsu’s Global Cloud provides an impressive footprint of global IT resources, while ServiceMesh’s Agility Platform delivers the unified governance, lifecycle management, and automation required by enterprises to effectively manage their hybrid cloud environments. The combination of ServiceMesh and Fujitsu represents a potent new weapon in the enterprise IT arsenal.”
