Fujitsu to offer IaaS service in North America

Interested organizations can sign up for a free three-month trial of the infrastructure-as-a-service offering

Fujitsu is launching its infrastructure-as-a-service offering in North America in a few months, and will start offering interested customers a free trial next week.

Beginning on May 31, organizations can sign up for a free three-month trial of the service. On Sept. 1, the service will become generally available.

Interested customers can sign up for the service online, and Fujitsu suggests they use it to try out application testing and development as well as processing for workloads like data analytics.

Fujitsu already offers an IaaS service in Japan, Australia, Singapore and the U.K. Expanding into the U.S. means that multinational companies can access the service locally in multiple locations, the company said.

It will offer the North America service from a data center in Silicon Valley with 24-7 support.

The service works with Microsoft, Linux and CentOS applications. Fujitsu said the platform is built on open standards, although it did not say which.

The company also offers consulting services and can help companies transition workloads to the cloud, it said.

Fujitsu did not disclose costs for users, saying that the service would be competitively priced based on usage of compute, storage, Internet communications and software.

Fujitsu joins a growing list of companies offering IaaS services, including Amazon, Rackspace, Joyent, GoGrid and others.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
