Fujitsu upgrades WA Cloud

Summary:The IT service provider will be expanding its Cloud platform, previously hosted in the east coast, to its Western Australia datacentre.

Fujitsu has expanded its cloud-computing platform to its datacentre in Malaga, Western Australia.

The IT services provider is adding a node in the facility as part of an expansion to its local cloud platform that's already available in datacentres on the east coast. Fujitsu offers a range of cloud services, including infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS).

The new capabilities, which will come into effect in November, will reduce latency to Western Australia customers. Customers migrating enterprise applications or large databases can also upload data more efficiently through the upgrade.

"There is a strong business case for establishing a cloud presence in Western Australia," Fujitsu Australia's CEO Mike Foster said in a statement. "The new cloud capability will provide a local entry point for customers on the west coast, and will address the needs of our national customers with geographical separation of sites within the same country."
