The Oracle Cloud Platform offered by Fujitsu and
Oracle Cloud is the industry’s broadest and most
integrated public cloud, offering a complete range of public cloud services
across SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS. Oracle Cloud Platform, which includes Oracle’s
analytics, application development, data management, and integration services,
has experienced steady growth, adding thousands of customers in fiscal 2017.
Global enterprises, SMBs, and ISVs are turning to Oracle Cloud Platform to
build and run modern Web mobile, and cloud-native applications.
By delivering Oracle Public Cloud services,
including Oracle Database Cloud Service with high-available, high-scalable
features, such as Oracle Real Application Clusters(1), from Fujitsu’s robust,
reliable datacenter, mission-critical systems can be used in a cloud

its customers, Fujitsu is able to meet its customers’ diverse needs for
enterprise-grade cloud services, including support for private clouds.
About Fujitsu Cloud Service K5 DB powered by
Based on the Oracle Database Cloud Service, this
service incorporates Fujitsu’s systems-integration know-how and is delivered as
the kind of distinctive database service that customers expect from Fujitsu.
For example, this automates the settings used when creating a database, such as
the security settings, encryption, and operational monitoring needed when
deploying and building a database. Customers need not learn any new
cloud-specific technologies, and can immediately start using Oracle Database
Cloud Service. They can also use the service in peace of mind thanks to
Fujitsu’s high-quality one-stop support.
This service connects the Fujitsu K5 cloud
service, which supports systems of record (SoR)(2) and systems of engagement
(SoE)(3), to Oracle Cloud Services, extending K5’s database offerings with K5
DB (Oracle). This enables companies to move their existing ICT assets into the
cloud and enhance their support for SoR.
Engineers on hand to assist with customer

operation. Fujitsu has the largest number of people with “ORACLE MASTER

staff. Structuring the “Cloud Solution for Oracle” as a service to
aid in Oracle Cloud deployment and operation has, with certified engineers(4),
realized rapid, secure and steady transition to Oracle Cloud, responsively
meeting customer cloud transition needs.
A Diamond member in the Oracle
PartnerNetwork(5), Fujitsu and Oracle have a relationship that spans more than
three decades. This joint project works to increase Fujitsu’s systems
integration capabilities and further strengthens Oracle technology expertise.
