Fujitsu gonna throw one to offer Computing as a Service (CaaS), with which it will offer its customers around the world access, via the cloud, to some of the most advanced computing technologies available today. Among them, to the technology built into the most powerful and fastest supercomputer in the world today, Fugaku. Also to software applications which, among other things, will give customers the ability to solve problems using artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Of course, the offer will not be available from. now. We will have to wait several months, because it will not begin to be offered until next October in Japan. Europe, the Asia-Pacific region and the Americas will follow, but later.
As a first step in setting up this new offer, Fujitsu will start collecting requests to access your Fujitsu Cloud HPS service that will allow customers to harness the power of the supercomputer Fujitsu PRIMEHPC FX1000. This computer is characterized by the same processor as the one integrated in Fugaku.
The option to request access to the service for businesses and consumers in Japan is now open and, as we mentioned, it will be made available to those who request it in Japan in October. In the coming months, Fujitsu will add more services to its Digital Annealer technology, which is inspired by quantum computing and includes Fugaku, and its cloud services, to its compute-as-a-service offering.
the Vivek Mahajan, CTO of Fujitsuoffered more details on this future IT-as-a-Service offering, assuring that “CaaS will provide customers with seamless access to public cloud services that meet growing computing demands with agility, leveraging Fujitsu’s cutting-edge computing technologies. In the future, we hope to expand the portfolio further, with access to technologies such as quantum computing. This milestone marks an important step towards the democratization of high-performance and quantum computing, and will play an important role in achieving Fujitsu’s goal of making the world more sustainable by building trust in society through innovation. .“.
In addition to helping its infrastructure, the company believes that its IT-as-a-service can help alleviate deep-seated social issues, as well as changes in various industries, such as banking, manufacturing, logistics, disaster prevention and health.
