Fujitsu Makes FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite Solution Available in North America

Sunnyvale, Calif. - May 11, 2004 -- Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation today made available the FlexFrame™ for mySAP® Business Suite solution, the first realization of an IT infrastructure with SAP Adaptive Computing capabilities. The FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite solution replaces yesterday's complex environment of multiple dedicated servers with a modular concept that incorporates the latest business-critical computing technologies like Fujitsu PRIMERGY® servers. This modular approach allows virtualization of the Linux Operating System, application services and storage, consolidating all application and database services on a single, easily managed platform.

"FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite simplifies the IT infrastructure and offers on-demand provisioning and other autonomic features to significantly reduce TCO by 30 percent or greater," said Richard McCormack, vice president of product and solutions marketing for Fujitsu Computer Systems. "It is a perfect example of our commitment to deliver pre-tested solutions that are easily deployable and manageable so our customers can focus on their business without worrying about their IT infrastructure."

The FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite solution is the first complete realization of server virtualization and dynamic component provisioning for business applications. The solution provides dynamic allocation of hardware resources to meet specific software requirements on demand, scaling with little or no downtime and integrated high availability that requires no costly clustering of servers. With minimal manual intervention, adjustments to computing demand can be made to maintain maximum operational efficiency with near zero downtime. As a result, customers can achieve optimum usage of their IT infrastructure investment.

The FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite solution is a proven foundation on which enterprise customers can confidently deploy the latest mySAP solutions, facilitating easy and flexible SAP system management for superior operational efficiency. The solution was designed in close collaboration with SAP AG and Network Appliance.

"FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite is a powerful complement to our unified storage products," said Patrick Rogers, vice president of marketing at Network Appliance. "Together, our joint solutions greatly simplify SAP data management and archiving."

The Fujitsu Group recently announced its participation in the Enterprise Grid Alliance, a consortium created to develop enterprise utility computing solutions. Fujitsu has been investing considerable resources into advanced grid technology and the FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite solution is an example of an early incarnation of grid technology available today.

Fujitsu and Network Appliance will conduct live demonstrations of the FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite solution at the SAPPHIRE® '04 conference in New Orleans (May 11-13, 2004) at booth #309.
