IT services company Fujitsu has scored a new datacentre and managed services support contract with WA Health, replacing the department's incumbent provider InfoHealth Alliance.

The contract will see Fujitsu relocate and manage WA Health's infrastructure out of its new datacentre in Perth, looking after the agency's servers, storage, networks and security services.

Fujitsu's deal with WA Health is set to run for four years with an option to extend.

Tim White, managed services director for Fujitsu, said that the Perth datacentre is more than capable of handling WA Health's needs.

"Built with sustainability as a key building block, this [Perth] facility will accommodate WA Health's initial requirements as well as accommodate plans for future expansion.

"WA Health represents an important infrastructure support services client for Fujitsu, adding to our growing WA managed services business, which includes end-user computing, remote infrastructure management, network management, ITIL service management and datacentre services," White said.
