Today at CeBIT, the world’s largest and most international computer expo, Fujitsu is introducing their technical reference architecture for OpenStack-powered, private cloud computing environments as part of the Fujitsu OpenStack Initiative (FOSI). Core components of the reference architecture are Fujitsu server (Fujitsu PRIMERGY and Fujitsu ETERNUS storage systems), Fujitsu Catalog Manager, professional services for a successful implementation and SUSE Cloud.

SUSE is one of the ten biggest contributors to the OpenStack projects, and the current version SUSE Cloud 3 is built on the latest OpenStack version, “Havana.” By using SUSE Cloud as part of the Fujitsu’s reference architecture, Fujitsu and SUSE provide an easy-to-implement, secure and open cloud environment based on OpenStack. It will help companies adopt the cloud while benefiting from great flexibility and scalability without losing control over data and applications.

An interesting part of the reference architecture is the virtualization platform. The Fujitsu OpenStack reference architecture supports not only KVM and Xen but also VMware (vSphere) and Microsoft Hyper-V. This allows companies to leverage their existing technologies and build an open infrastructure supporting future technology trends.

For many years SUSE and Fujitsu have collaborated on highly efficient infrastructures for data centers. Using SUSE Cloud, based on OpenStack, for the Fujitsu reference architecture is another step towards innovative data centers.
