Fujitsu Announces Introduction of New, Comprehensive Line-Up of Integrated Systems Solutions
Jul 29 14
Fujitsu announced the introduction of its new, comprehensive line-up of Integrated Systems solutions, helping ICT managers make immediate progress towards meeting end-user needs by making the datacenter more business-centric. With a focus on enhancing its portfolio for the datacenter, Integrated Systems is comprised of straightforward reference architectures and pre-integrated ready-to-run systems. The new Fujitsu Integrated Systems line-up starts with simple, general-purpose infrastructures and general purpose platforms for middleware, and is topped by systems for purpose-built application integration. Integrated Systems reduce complexity and risk by offering more rapid deployment times without trial-and-error testing. Once in place, Integrated Systems provides faster payback periods since they optimize resource utilization for complex environments, such as in-memory applications like SAP HANA, which are compute, networking and storage-intensive. The Fujitsu Integrated Systems portfolio combines the company's powerful Fujitsu PRIMERGY and Fujitsu PRIMEQUEST servers, as well as Fujitsu ETERNUS and NetApp FAS storage platforms with best-of-breed third-party technologies.
Fujitsu Strengthens Production Management Solution for Plant Factories with Akisai Food and Agriculture Cloud
Jul 22 14
Fujitsu announced that it will enhance its production management service lineup for the 'Akisai' Food and Agriculture Cloud by adding a production management system provided by Kobayashi Create Co. Ltd. The solution manages the production of plant factories and greenhouse horticulture. Fujitsu will make the new solution available as part of FUJITSU Intelligent Society Solution 'Akisai' Food and Agriculture Cloud. Sales will commence in August 2014. The service will only be available in Japan. This new solution utilizes a handheld tag reader to simplify the on-site collection of work records and data management. The service is ideally suited to manage plant growth in plant factories and greenhouse horticulture sites that manage cultivated crops by respective lot, or that raise a variety of different crops in small quantities. In the future, Fujitsu will aim to integrate the data from this service with data from other Akisai services to create an entire supply chain encompassing ordering, production, shipping, and inventory management, and thereby contribute to the creation of enterprise-style agricultural management with higher earnings and efficiency. Features of the new production management system: With the new service, workers can now hold up a handheld tag reader to RFID tags or two-dimensional coded tags assigned to each respective lot and individually identify and input work results. This facilitates the management of work histories from planting to harvest, even for plant factories that transfer the location of cultivation in the course of the cultivation cycle. In addition, information input in the handheld tag reader can be stored in an office PC, allowing for the visual verification of work progress and growing conditions for each individually managed lot. This enables the tabulation and analysis of such information as work delays and response conditions for each lot, resulting in more efficient production management. Furthermore, sharing of results data among agricultural producers promotes the acquisition of cultivation techniques and improved work quality. Fujitsu plans to deploy this service in October 2014 to its own plant factory in Aizu-Wakamatsu where it produces low-potassium lettuce. While listening to the front-line needs of agricultural producers, the company will continue to expand and enhance its 'Akisai' Food and Agriculture Cloud services, thereby utilizing ICT to ensure plentiful food supplies in the future.
