Fujitsu has selected Oracle Alloy to deploy sovereign cloud services in Japan.

Oracle Alloy is a cloud infrastructure platform that enables other companies to build their own cloud offering. The solution is built on Oracle hardware and the company's cloud stack. User's clouds are also compatible with Oracle's own cloud, meaning hyperscale public resources are available for both service providers and customers.

By using Alloy, Fujitsu will expand its Hybrid IT offering Fujitsu Uvance. Fujitsu will deploy and manage Oracle Alloy in its data centers in Japan. This will provide the company's customers with access to more than 100 Oracle cloud services while meeting data security and sovereignty requirements.

Kazushi Koga, SEVP of Fujitsu said: "Our collaboration with Oracle positions us to deliver a sovereign cloud offering that enables hyperscale functionality and digital sovereignty capabilities while ensuring operational governance by Fujitsu.”

Scott Twaddle, senior vice president, Product and Industries, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, added: “With Oracle Alloy we will be bringing our best cloud technologies to help Fujitsu’s customers transform and modernize their businesses and society. Fujitsu’s sovereign cloud approach in Japan is a testament to their forward-looking technology strategy. We look forward to continuing to partner with Fujitsu to bring cloud services to more customers around the world.”

According to Fujitsu: "Based on the knowledge accumulated through use cases in the Japanese market, Fujitsu will actively consider expanding Oracle Alloy to other markets." The company has a presence in over 35 countries.

The deal was announced shortly after Oracle committed to investing $8 billion in cloud computing and AI in Japan over the next decade. The cloud provider has existing cloud regions in Tokyo and Osaka that were launched in 2019 and 2020, respectively.

Last year, Oracle announced it would expand 66 of its existing cloud data centers and build 100 new ones globally, equating to between $7bn and $7.5bn in capex alone this year.

Fujitsu and Oracle previously had an agreement through which Oracle cloud services would be offered through Fujitsu's Japan data centers, and be linked with Fujitsu's K5 cloud.
