Fujitsu develops world’s first IaaS Platform technology for on-demand physical servers
Fujitsu today announced that it has developed a platform technology for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for on-demand physical servers that are configured to a user’s needs and can be provided in ten minutes. This technology is the first of its kind in the world. Currently, physical IaaS, or physical server-hosting services, which provides physical servers installed in a datacenter, requires that the service operator manually install and configure servers at the customer’s request, leading to a lag time of several days between the time when a customer orders new servers and when the servers actually go online.
The new technology makes use of another Fujitsu innovation, called Resource Pool Architecture, which makes it possible to configure physical servers on-demand and instantly respond to customer orders. This technology gives customers the ability to quickly bring high-performance physical servers online and instantly change hardware configurations, enabling greater flexibility in changing server numbers or the performance of individual servers to respond to changes in application loads.
