Drive to Innovate By @FerhatSF | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #API

80th year on the Innovation Trail

This year marks the 80th birthday of Fujitsu, and we continue with an accelerated drive of putting innovation in action. The company was originally founded in 1935 as a producer of telecommunications switches and spread out into computers and many other areas of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Today, Fujitsu is one of the world's largest IT services providers and number 1 in Japan. Our many decades of experience of building industry leading mainframes and supercomputers significantly contributes to Fujitsu M10 server product development.

Human Centric Innovation in Action, our corporate theme, was highlighted throughout the Fujitsu Forum Tokyo held in May 2015, where the we hosted over 13,000 IT decision-makers and experts from around the world. According to then Fujitsu President Masami Yamamoto, what was once only science fiction has now become a reality. Fujitsu is working to use the power of ICT to help society move toward sustainable development, and address challenges of food and energy shortages, urbanization, an aging society and other major social issues. Benefiting humanity with ICT is integral to our company's path going forward.

Fujitsu Forum Tokyo 2015: Human Centric Innovation in Action

Fujitsu M10 SPARC servers were showcased at the Fujitsu Forum Tokyo with several innovative technologies now enabling enterprises to , boost business productivity, and enhance the bottom line. Our server and processor development teams also hosted Fujitsu M10 Technology Day 2015 in our legendary Kawasaki campus in the preceding days with our partners. We discussed our relentless drive to bring innovations across all aspects of the server infrastructure from cooling and compact design to high-throughput high-speed data connectivity, and from scalable high-performance data processing, all the way to serving data and analytics results for mission-critical business intelligence applications.

Your author is pointing out innovations in action within the Fujitsu M10 servers to our partners at the Fujitsu M10 Technology Day.

With the Fujitsu M10's advanced architecture, a single infrastructure can provide virtually unlimited performance and capacity growth and support real-time analysis, forecast and decision making. The Fujitsu M10 server currently employs the innovative SPARC64 X+ processor, which runs at speeds up to 3.7 GHz and incorporates 16 cores. And it's about more than the processor. We designed a highly scalable system supporting over a thousand cores and with a very large memory footprint, while retaining the shared memory architecture that is crucial for business computing. The Fujitsu M10 server with Dynamic Scaling combines the advantages of scale up and scale out, making it easy to grow with the business in real time.

Start SMALL ... and Grow BIG! Fujitsu M10 innovations in action.

Start SMALL ... and Grow BIG! Fujitsu M10 innovations in action.

The official roadmap for the Fujitsu M10 outlines the system innovations and enhancements planned for the remainder of this decade in areas such as Software on Chip, the Coherent Memory Interconnect , and Liquid Loop Cooling. Fujitsu M10's ability to drive innovation in building more powerful systems with ever higher compute density to tackle the Big Data needs today and in the future. We are always innovating to help your organization meet its mission-critical computing challenges.

We hope to connect with you at the next stop on our journey putting Human Centric Innovation in Action. Fujitsu Forum 2015, our largest annual event in Europe, will be held November 18-19 at the International Congress Center Munich in Germany.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...
Product connectivity goes hand and hand these days with increased use of personal data. New IoT devices are becoming more personalized than ever before. In his session at 22nd Cloud Expo | DXWorld Expo, Nicolas Fierro, CEO of MIMIR Blockchain Solutions, will discuss how in order to protect your data and privacy, IoT applications need to embrace Blockchain technology for a new level of product security never before seen - or needed.
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
