Infrastructure powerhouse Fujitsu Siemens has strengthened its strategic alliance with storage giant EMC. The two companies, speaking at European IT trade show CeBIT, have announced their intention to create a new services framework for advanced data centre architectures. Fujitsu Siemens and EMC will also increase collaboration on emerging technologies.
IT Product Services (ITPS), Fujitsu Siemens' services arm, has joined the EMC authorised service network, providing services for EMC midrange networked storage solutions sold in EMEA by Fujitsu Siemens. This allows ITPS to deliver advanced EMC information services, which complement and enhance Fujitsu Siemens' dynamic data centre capabilities. The increased co-operation between Fujitsu Siemens and EMC coincides with the 10th anniversary of their strategic alliance.
"Customers are rapidly moving to next-generation IT architectures and they're demanding best-of-breed technologies that are integrated and well-supported. Together, Fujitsu Siemens Computers and EMC will deliver information infrastructure solutions that meet customer needs and help customers exploit new technologies," said Joe Tucci (pictured), EMC chairman, president and CEO.
"Today we're taking one of the strongest partnerships in the industry, and bringing it to a new level for the benefit of our customers. Fujitsu Siemens Computers is firmly established as EMC's second largest reseller worldwide, and with EMC's leading information infrastructure solutions our storage business continues to grow faster than the market," said Fujitsu Siemens chief executive Bernd Bischoff.
"EMC's excellent levels of customer service are known across the industry - so it is a huge endorsement for our ITPS division to be entrusted with servicing specific EMC midrange networked storage solutions sold in EMEA by Fujitsu Siemens Computers. Achievements like this are helping to drive the profitable growth of our ITPS business," he added.
