Akamai Partners With Fujitsu

TOKYO -- Akamai Japan K.K., a subsidiary of Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM), the leading global service provider for accelerating content and applications online, announced today that its Internet acceleration technology, including its Application Performance Solutions (APS) for enterprise applications, will be adopted by Fujitsu Limited for its FENICS II next-generation solutions.

In the past, Fujitsu has utilized Akamais services for high-speed, high-reliability Internet solutions in phases for such requirements as global inter-company collaborations, and application and video content delivery for customer services. Fujitsu will commence official sales activities for its next-generation network solutions as of April 4, and will now leverage Akamai’s comprehensive APS services to achieve reliability, acceleration functionality and visibility.

Akamai is providing its APS and other technologies to Fujitsu’s FENICS II in order to allow both partners to collectively solve the issues that companies face today, including system building and operation with a focus on the control of Internet networks, the construction of flexible global systems, and the utilization of SaaS. Through this service collaboration with Fujitsu, Akamai will provide network solutions that support the global operations of Japanese companies. A major Japanese trading company has already announced its adoption of this service, which is scheduled to be put in official operation at the end of April.
