Enterprise Infrastructure Leaders, Fujitsu and EMC, Unite in Answering CIO Need for Cost Effective UNIX Solutions

8/16/2002 - Fujitsu Technology Solutions announced a significantly expanded storage alliance with EMC Corporation, the leader in enterprise storage, in which Fujitsu will now resell the new EMC CLARiiON CX600 storage systems and software. The two companies will also work together to co-market and deliver comprehensive mission critical infrastructure solutions and services for customers that want a cost-effective single source for systems, software, and services.

The combination of Fujitsu® and EMC offerings will enable customers to optimize service delivery and realize higher availability, operational efficiencies, and control through complete IT infrastructure solutions. Unique to any other industry offering, customers receive exceptional cross-platform integration, interoperability, data access, and multi-vendor services and support.

"Our deepened relationship with EMC underscores Fujitsu's commitment to deliver best-in-class enterprise systems, software and services," said Richard McCormack, vice president Product and Solutions Marketing, Fujitsu Technology Solutions, Inc. "The two companies are very complementary and share similar goals—to deliver comprehensive, world-class high availability solutions that address critical business issues such as business continuity, storage management, and disaster recovery."

The key issues for CIOs this year are cutting and stabilizing costs. In fact, cost control will continue to be the overriding issue until the economy becomes healthy, according to Giga Information Group1. Therefore, it is more important than ever for IT to make sound purchasing choices based on vendor capabilities, and factors that affect total cost of ownership (TCO), including systems price per performance, integration and interoperability, adaptability and flexibility.

"The combination of the EMC CLARiiON CX600 systems and software with Fujitsu's PRIMEPOWER servers and IT infrastructure services will be hard for our competitors to match," said Gregg Ambulos, EMC's vice president of Global Channels. "The strong relationship between EMC and Fujitsu provides customers with a complete Solaris based platform that delivers the highest levels of performance and functionality. The addition of the CLARiiON CX600 and new EMC software into the Fujitsu lineup further strengthens the capabilities we're delivering to customers."

EMC's next-generation CLARiiON CX600 is the highest performing system in the CLARiiON line, and will become the newest addition to the Fujitsu set of offerings. In addition to CLARiiON, Fujitsu Technology Solutions, Inc., also resells EMC's leading Symmetrix enterprise storage systems and software.

Coupled with Managed Services from Fujitsu Technology Solutions. Inc., Fujitsu PRIMEPOWERTM SolarisTM compatible servers and the EMC CLARiiON CX600 provide the most complete and highly available UNIX® offering for customers; together, they beat other solutions on availability, price/performance, and management of customer IT assets.
