Fujitsu Computing as a Service

Fujitsu has announced its new Fujitsu Computing as a Service (CaaS) offering which will provide global customers with access to some of the world’s most advanced computing technologies via the cloud.

The Japanese company’s new service portfolio encompasses advanced computing resources including its quantum-inspired Digital Annelear technology that is at the heart of the world’s fastest supercomputer Fugaku along with software applications that will allow customers to solve problems using AI and machine learning.

Fujitsu plans to begin offering these new services first in the Japanese market in October of this year with a global rollout in Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas later.

CTO of Fujitsu Limited, Vivek Mahajan said: “CaaS will provide customers with seamless access to services on the public cloud to meet rapidly increasing computing demands, leveraging Fujitsu’s world-leading advanced computing technologies. In the future, we look to further expand the portfolio with access to technologies like quantum computing. This move marks an important milestone toward democratising high-performance and quantum computing and will play an important role in the achievement of Fujitsu’s Purpose: ‘to make the world more sustainable by building trust in society through innovation.’”

Fujitsu will begin taking preorders for its Fujitsu Cloud Service HPS that will allow customers to use the computing power of the Fujitsu Supercomputer PRIMEHPC FX1000.

This supercomputer shares the same CPU that is at the heart of the company’s Fugaku and sales of the service to the public and organisations in Japan will commence on April 6 of this year with delivery slated for October. In the coming months though, Fujitsu will add more services for its Digital Annealer technology and AI cloud services to its lineup.
