New vShape technology from Fujitsu, which combines storage, server, network and virutalisation in one place, is claimed cut the cost of traditional hardware by 30pc.

The system is aimed at businesses with high storage requirements, such as architects, solicitors and medical companies.

Desktop virtualisation also provides secure access, enabling employees to work remotely, and could reduce energy consumption by up to 80pc – saving money and reducing a company’s carbon footprint.

“As companies look to make the transition to virtualisation and cloud, they are searching for solutions that are easy to deploy, simple to configure and can scale with their needs over time,” explained Kenneth Keogh, director of business development at Fujitsu Ireland.

“vShape offers a stress-free solution straight out of the box, significantly reducing the cost of design and time to deployment so organisations can spend less time on IT and focus instead on their core business.

“vShape also gives piece of mind by bringing best-in-class vendors such as NetApp, VMware, Microsoft, Symantec, Fujitsu and Brocade together in one package supported by a single maintenance contract provided by Fujitsu,” Keogh said.
