We also took the opportunity to explore Fujitsu’s vision for hybrid IT.
“At the most basic level, as a company, we have over 80 years of experience in various industries around the world,” says Medianero. “We design, develop, deploy, manage and optimize the systems businesses of all types need to meet their operational, application and infrastructure needs.”
Fujitsu offers a wide range of consultancy services and solutions for infrastructure and business continuity. The team of cloud specialists helps clients deliver services to their customers and realize strong, seamless operations that reflect the power of the cloud and the myriad technological benefits it enables.

We believe it is imperative for enterprises to have the freedom and flexibility to use the right cloud for every task, application and business need.”
Fujitsu supports all major public clouds. The company’s Fujitsu Cloud is a private cloud based on VMware technology that provides a high level of security and privacy to ensure sensitive operations and data are protected. Fujitsu also offers Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Containers-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service in private cloud environments.
“For hybrid cloud, we seamlessly combine public, private and managed cloud infrastructures with traditional on-premises IT,” he adds. “We can do this on a modest budget to ensure each customer’s hybrid IT integration is as cost-effective as possible. Our approach provides an intelligent architecture that integrates seamlessly into the existing environment through a management framework that can be adapted and evolved as business needs change. It also provides the right mix of services for the rapid deployment of new cloud-based solutions while ensuring tight alignment with governance, compliance, privacy and security needs — all while enabling data availability from anywhere and on any device.”
Specifically, Fujitsu’s PRIMEFLEX is an integrated system that includes pre-configured, pre-tested hybrid cloud-enabled systems — including those for VMware technologies — and all the services needed to provide a fast track for hybrid data development. architectures. PRIMEFLEX speeds up the entire process, including design, implementation and maintenance. It also enables customers to easily convert their on-premises infrastructure to a private cloud, introduce cloud pricing models, and connect on-premise systems to the cloud of their choice.
“Our hybrid cloud solutions and services enable growth, reduce risk, lower costs and increase productivity,” said Medianero. “They also provide the centralized control that is so important in a world where business units use the cloud directly.”
Medianero emphasizes that VMware Cloud Verified is an important distinction for the Fujitsu team in Spain. It also reflects a long-standing and productive partnership between the two companies.
“The VMware Cloud Verified award is an important milestone for us as it demonstrates to the Spaniards that we meet and achieve the highest standards,” he says. “The long-standing partnership between Fujitsu and VMware also enables us to leverage world-class public and private cloud-based technologies to drive rapid continuity strategies. Whether an organization is seeking the performance, resiliency and control of the private cloud or the scale, innovation and changeability of the public cloud, together we can provide the ideal solutions, services and seamless integration needed to fully realize those efforts. support and support the work of today’s and tomorrow’s employees.”
