US and Canada Data Centers: Fujitsu Grows Its Service Footprint

Toward the end of August, technology giant Fujitsu Ltd. announced the opening of three new Tier III computing facilities in the U.S. and Canada. The company launched a New York data center as well as a California data center, and has plans to open a Regina, Saskatchewan data center in the very near future.

The California data center, New York data center and Canada data center were all constructed in accordance with industry guidelines for Tier III sustainability and redundancy. This provides a 99.982 percent uptime guarantee for clients receiving services from the data centers.

The new facilities will support Fujitsu’s increasing client demands in North America, and will provide a range of services including big data analytics, cloud applications, storage, disaster recovery and IaaS. The new data centers will also offer Japanese bilingual services, which the company noted is especially beneficial for their Japan-based clients.

“Companies across the world are demanding more enhanced services and solutions to help them realize their globalization ambitions,” said Bob Pryor, Fujitsu corporate vice president and head of Americas. “By delivering Japanese bilingual data center capabilities, Fujitsu further demonstrates its long-standing commitment to helping customers achieve their business objectives.”

The new facilities also fit in with the company’s recent $2 billion commitment to its IaaS, PaaS, SaaS and cloud integration services. Fujitsu also recently signed a deal with distributor Arrow Electronics, allowing its offerings – including its converged infrastructure and SAP HANA – to be added to the organization’s line card.
