Fujitsu offers free cloud trial

20 Oct 2011

Small businesses too busy to test out cloud computing services are being offered an extra incentive in the form of a free two-month trial from Fujitsu.

SMBs in New Zealand and Australia, as well as Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), are invited to test out Fujitsu’s cloud offering, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS), all hosted in the company’s Australian data centres.

Craig Baty, CTO and executive general manager of Fujitsu ANZ, says he is confident the platform will deliver value to potential customers.

"Since we went live with our cloud in September 2010 we have had a high level of interest from enterprise and government customers,” Baty says.

"We have introduced this trial offer as an added incentive that will appeal to smaller organisations.

"It will also allow organisations of all sizes to test the suitability of the cloud locally.”

Businesses have until January 31 2012 to sign up for the trial. Go here for more.
