Fujitsu Asia and VMware Inc. have announced a local OEM distribution agreement to offer end-to-end server virtualization solutionswhich include consultation, hardware, software, systems integration and maintenanceacross the Southeast Asia region. The deal builds on the companies' existing relationship to now offer VMware virtualization in markets of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam.

The local OEM agreement allows Fujitsu Asia to sell VMware virtualization on Fujitsu's Intel-based PRIMERGY line of servers and to provide Level 1 and Level 2 support.

"We are delighted to further extend our relationship with VMware, which delivers the de facto standard in virtualization solutions," said Motohiko Uno, VP of platform solutions group of Fujitsu Asia. "This agreement furthers Fujitsu's commitment to green IT. We are focused on helping customers of all sizes to reduce the cost, complexity and environmental impact of enterprise services. PRIMERGY blade servers already offer an excellent performance-to-energy ratio, and by adding VMware virtualization, customers will derive even greater efficiency from their hardware investments."

Customers can now purchase VMware Infrastructure 3, Vmware's industry-leading data center virtualization and management suite, bundled with Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers with full support from Fujitsu. VMware Infrastructure 3 enables automatic load balancing, business continuity and power management and the ability to move a virtual machine across physical machines to minimize service interruption. VMware Infrastructure 3 is also compatible with VMware's desktop virtualization and management solutions.

Designed for Linux and Windows platforms, the PRIMERGY range comprises mission-critical, enterprise-class and entry-level blade, rack and tower servers engineered for optimum performance with low energy consumption and minimal heat dissipation. For example, the PRIMERGY BX620 S4 blade server runs on dual- or quad-core Xeon processors and is designed for energy-efficient, large-scale data center apps.

In addition, Fujitsu Asia now offers the Resource Coordinator Virtual Server Edition (RCVE), a complementary product to VMware virtualization that further enhances business continuity. Fujitsu's RCVE enables control of both physical and virtualized blade servers via a single management view. This allows an integrated solution of PRIMERGY servers and ETERNUS storage to provide fail over capability to both physical and VMware virtualized servers, providing customers with a highly reliable environment suitable for consolidation.
