Fujitsu Services ensures it is able to provide highest quality managed services to its clients by using Aperture VISTA to visualise 210, 000 square feet of data centres
21 February 2007 – Fujitsu Services, one of Europe’s leading IT services companies, has deployed Aperture’s industry leading data centre management solution, VISTA, to provide visibility into all the physical aspects of data centre management including space, power and cooling.
Fujitsu Services has data centres across Europe and Africa including locations in the UK, Finland, Germany, Netherlands, South Africa, Spain and Sweden. The company manages data centre services for leading private companies and public sector organisations. To ensure optimal data centre management and help plan future capacity, Fujitsu Services has deployed Aperture VISTA to manage 210, 000 square feet of its data centres – an area equivalent to five football pitches.
Aperture Technologies is the leading global provider of software for managing the physical infrastructure of data centers. The company has over 20 years experience in data centre management and a database of over 30, 000 data centre components. Aperture’s VISTA product is currently deployed in 105 customer sites with more than 50 in the Fortune 1000/Global 500.
Mark Scott, head of customer data centres at Fujitsu Services, said: “Two major challenges we faced were to ensure our data centres were cost, power and space effective, and to ensure that we had a good view of capacity to plan for the future. We knew we needed to implement a technology that would decipher the configuration management complexities of today’s data centres; avoid operational errors and maintain the smooth running of our enterprise. The benefits of using Aperture’s VISTA were immediately obvious. The technology encapsulates everything you learn about data centre best practice.”
Aperture provides Fujitsu Services with an accurate picture of its data centres, enabling Fujitsu Services to accommodate and serve more clients and grow its business. Using VISTA, Fujitsu Services is able to minimise installation risks, understand and mitigate the impact of system failures and demonstrate best practice in data centre management to its customers.
“Fujitsu Services has a highly-respected and fast-growing managed services business,” said William Clifford, chairman and CEO of Aperture Technologies Inc. “When you are managing such a large number of data centres and you have so many public and private organisations outsourcing their data to you and depending on you, then you have to invest in technology that gives you unequivocal visibility and control. That is exactly what VISTA does.”
