Tokyo, May 9, 2012 - Fujitsu today announced
"My Cloud," a revolutionary new concept for PCs.
In aiming to bring about a human centric intelligent
society, the announcement is part of Fujitsu's
continued efforts to create a prosperous future through a
wide range of transformational technologies.
Based on Fujitsu's human-centric approach of placing
top emphasis on the user, My Cloud will offer customers a
new kind of user experience.
My Cloud will take advantage of Fujitsu's portfolio of
transformational technologies-both past and future-and will
present new possibilities for employing cloud computing.
Background and Goals
Compared with other kinds of personal devices, PCs boast a
significant number of advantages, such as advanced
processing capabilities thanks to high-performance CPUs,
high-capacity storage media and scalability through the use
of a variety of peripheral devices. However, most users do
not take advantage of these advanced computing
capabilities, but rather mainly use PCs for Internet
applications such as browsing the web or checking e-mail.
At the same time, customers are inundated by digital data
and various digital devices and services, which can make it
very tiresome to find what one is looking for or accomplish
what one wants. In order to improve convenience in
users' everyday lives, Fujitsu is presenting My Cloud,
a new concept and role for PCs that takes full advantage of
their latent potential.
About My Cloud
Not simply a hardware offering, My Cloud is a solution that
brings together hardware, software and services to make
users' lives more convenient, simple and secure. With
My Cloud, all of the data scattered throughout a
customer's household can be automatically collected and
organized in an easy-to-use fashion. Moreover, by
connecting to different cloud services, users can open up a
wide range of different ways to enjoy their digital data.
My Cloud's Two Modules
My Cloud is comprised of two modules: "My Cloud
P," which allows users to collect and utilize the
large amount of data scattered throughout their houses, and
"My Cloud S," which gathers together a number of
safe and secure cloud services. The two modules are linked
at home and in the cloud, offering users an optimized
service in which there is no need to distinguish between
data on hand and data in the cloud.
For example, My Cloud P can easily transfer all the photo
data stored across the user's hard drives, digital
cameras and smartphones to a PC, while automatically
organizing the data along the way for greater user
convenience. In addition, My Cloud S is interlinked with a
variety of cloud services, making it easy to backup
exclusively the user's favorite photos to a net storage
platform or make a CD album. In addition to offering new
ways to utilize and enjoy latent customer data, My Cloud
makes it possible to naturally and easily accomplish the
tasks that one wants to do.
Through My Cloud, which leverages the potential of PCs in
combination with software and services, customers no longer
have to perform labor-intensive device and data operations
and management, and instead can focus purely on enjoying
the activities that matter the most. Customers will also be
able to receive suggestions from My Cloud that meet their
individual needs. In addition to the recently announced FMV
Summer 2012 models, the solution will be incorporated into
a wide variety of future FMV products. Fujitsu's My
Cloud opens up the door to a world of new possibilities for
enjoying cloud computing.
