Niche Player: Fujitsu
Fujitsu is a global IT hardware and software behemoth with a wide range of public and private cloud IaaS offerings. It has data centers in the U.S. (West Coast), Germany, England, Australia, Japan and Singapore.
Strengths: Fujitsu has a giant global sales team selling to customers all over the world, and so it has what Gartner described as a "captive audience" for its cloud IaaS services. Fujitsu also builds a lot of its own technology for its IaaS, PaaS and SaaS offerings.
Cautions: Gartner didn't sugar-coat its assessment of Fujitsu's cloud IaaS services, noting that "its feature set lags the market leaders" and "VM provisioning times are lengthy compared to other providers." Fujitsu also can't meet common compliance requirements, Gartner said.
