In an effort to accelerate digital transformation (opens in new tab)Fujitsu announced its new Fujitsu Computing as a Service (CaaS) offering, giving customers worldwide access to some of the world’s most advanced computing technologies via the cloud.
The Japanese company’s new service portfolio includes advanced computing resources, including its quantum-inspired Digital Annelear technology, which is at the heart of the world’s fastest supercomputer, Fugaku (opens in new tab) along with software applications that enable customers to solve problems using AI and machine learning.
Fujitsu plans to launch these new services in the Japanese market starting in October this year and later globally in Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Americas.
Vivek Mahajan, CTO of Fujitsu Limited, provided further details on the company’s new CaaS offering in a press release (opens in new tab)Saying:
“CaaS provides customers with seamless access to public cloud services to meet rapidly increasing computing needs by leveraging Fujitsu’s world-leading advanced computing technologies. In the future, we want to further expand the portfolio by accessing technologies such as quantum computing. This move represents an important milestone on the road to democratization of high-performance and quantum computing and will play an important role in achieving Fujitsu’s purpose: ‘to make the world more sustainable by building trust in society through innovation.’”
Fujitsu Computing as a Service
As a first step in its new endeavor, Fujitsu will begin accepting pre-orders for its Fujitsu Cloud Service HPS, which will allow customers to harness the computing power of the Fujitsu supercomputer PRIMEHPC FX1000.
This supercomputer uses the same CPU that is at the heart of the company’s Fugaku, and sales of the service to the general public and organizations in Japan will begin on April 6 this year, with shipments scheduled for October. However, in the coming months, Fujitsu will add more services for its Digital Annealer technology and AI (opens in new tab) cloud services in its product range.

The company believes that CaaS can not only contribute to its bottom line, but also help solve societal issues as well as ongoing challenges in a variety of industries including finance, manufacturing, logistics, disaster relief and healthcare.
We’ll likely hear more about Fujitsu Computing-as-a-Service later in the year once customers have the ability to run their workloads on the company’s supercomputers.
