Fujitsu has launched the TC Cloud, a cloud service for analytical simulations in the area of technical computing. The cloud service will be introduced in phases beginning in the third quarter of 2011.

The TC Cloud offers three services. The first service is the Analytical Platform Service, which provides a platform for conducting analytical simulations. The second is the Analytical Applications Service, which provides analytical applications. And the last service it offers is the

Analytical Help Desk, which provides support for setting up and running analytical simulations.

Analytical Platform Service
Utilising a platform consisting of its data centers and other resources, Fujitsu builds an analytical simulation environment for each customer, and then delivers the environment as a cloud service. Fujitsu is offering three classes of service with variations in parallel processing performance and the flexibility with which configurations can be changed: 1) speedy class, 2) premium class; and 3) high-performance class.

The Analytical Platform Service can create hybrid environments combining the computational resources of the customer with those of the TC Cloud. Its large-volume analytic results can be conveniently navigated. The service promises to deliver the superior reliability and operational continuity of Fujitsu's datacenters.

Analytical Applications Service
In conjunction with the Analytical Platform Service, Fujitsu is also offering analytical applications as a cloud service. The first service to be offered will be Poynting, Fujitsu's electromagnetic wave analytical software, with other services added over time.

With the Analytical Applications Service's metered-rate license, cost is based on usage volume. Also, services will expand to include all types of analytical applications.

Analytical Help Desk
The Analytical Help Desk is a support service for resolving problems in analytical simulations. Leveraging the know-how it has accumulated through its delivery of solutions in the field of technical computing, Fujitsu is offering support in set-ups, training, and operations, and can also run analyzes on behalf of customers. Even customers who are new to the field of analytical simulations will be able to apply them in their work with the support Fujitsu provides.

Geared toward the manufacturing sector, the service enables customers to optimize their computational resources by allowing them to quickly scale their resources up or down in accordance with fluctuations in their need to run analyzes. In addition, customers who are considering whether to initiate their own analytical simulation capabilities can use this service to do an easy trial deployment. Moreover, the Analytical Applications Service can be used under either a fixed-rate license or a usage-based license, enabling customers to optimize the costs they incur for using analytical applications.
