Fujitsu has deployed Juniper Networks’ cloud management platform AppFormix in Japan, in a bid to ensure the operational efficiency of the new region of its own K5 enterprise cloud service K5.

K5 is billed as the world’s largest open-source based platform, with Fujitsu noting strong adoption by organisations looking to drive digital business transformation across the public, private and hybrid cloud.

As Fujitsu prepared for the launch of the new region of K5, which scales several times the previous version, it required a cloud operations management service that could to address these operational requirements, while bringing increased capabilities.

In addition to significantly reducing operational burden and complexity, AppFormix’s unique user-friendly GUI dashboard displaying real-time reporting and high level compatibility with OpenStack has also allowed Fujitsu to better plan resource consumption and capacity expansion, which is crucial in light of potential continued service expansions of the K5 platform in the future.
