Information Technology equipment and services providing company Fujitsu announces the launch of its offering named Fujitsu Computing as a Service (CaaS) in Japan.
The newly launched service will now allow users to access the world’s leading computing technologies through the cloud.
CaaS’s broader appeal has been constrained by high costs and implementation problems, resulting in limited commercial usage of advanced computing technologies.
According to the company, its new technology features advanced computing resources such as Fujitsu’s quantum-inspired Digital Annealer technology and multiple software applications that enable users to solve problems using artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The CaaS cloud services portfolio is one of Fujitsu’s “Uvance” brand’s primary pillars for creating a sustainable society and resolving societal concerns through digital innovation. The company will begin taking preorders for its Fujitsu Cloud Service HPC at the initial stage.

Fujitsu’s tech will allow users to enjoy the processing capabilities of Fujitsu’s Supercomputer PRIMEHPC FX1000, which uses the same CPU as the supercomputer Fugaku. The Japanese market will be able to order Fujitsu’s new CaaS from October 2022, and the company says it will roll out the product for international markets in the coming months.
Chief Technology Officer of Fujitsu, Vivek Mahajan, said, “CaaS will provide customers with seamless access to services on the public cloud to meet rapidly increasing computing demands, leveraging Fujitsu’s world-leading advanced computing technologies. In the future, we look to further expand the portfolio with access to technologies like quantum computing.”
He further added that this development is a significant step toward democratizing high-performance and quantum computing and will help Fujitsu fulfill its purpose of making the world more sustainable by fostering confidence in society through innovation.
“Fujitsu further aims to contribute to resolving various social issues by supporting customers in managing, digitizing, and integrating ever-increasing amounts of complex data in their business through secure 5G and beyond 5G networks and to provide advanced AI,” said the company.
