Veritas Technologies has announced that Fujitsu Limited has selected Veritas Access, a software-defined scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) solution, as the premier storage infrastructure for the Fujitsu Cloud Service K5.
Fujitsu’s reliance on traditional hardware storage, for K5’s operational infrastructure, created challenges including a lack of flexibility, higher costs and difficulties in accommodating a variety of data transfer protocols on the same architecture. Fujitsu found that Veritas Access—a software-defined storage (SDS) solution with numerous successful deployments— fulfilled the rigorous prerequisites of deployment in Cloud Service K5.
Masahiro Ota, Cloud Service Business Director, Fujitsu Limited said, “Veritas offers a number of SDS products of which, Veritas Access, in particular, provides K5 users with exceptional benefits, including flexibility and opportunities to reduce cost. Notably, Veritas’ numerous product deployments for enterprises across both Japan and globally, was an indispensable factor in Fujitsu’s decision to deploy Veritas Access in K5. We look forward to expanding our partnership with Veritas, to offer data management services for multi-cloud platforms centered on K5.”
Mike Palmer, executive vice president and chief product officer, Veritas added, “Veritas’ strategic relationship with Fujitsu goes back more than two decades. As one of our global key partners, we are delighted that Fujitsu picked Veritas Access to support K5, a strong testimony of the unique value of our solution to help Fujitsu deliver benefits to their customers.
“At Veritas, we are focused on enabling organisations to effectively protect and manage their most important asset—data.
