DIR, Fujitsu, and KDDI partner to build cloud-computing environment in Myanmar
Jan 02, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Daiwa Institute of Research Ltd., or DIR, Fujitsu Limited, and KDDI Corporation have collaborated to build a cloud computing environment in Myanmar.
Built for the Central Bank of Myanmar, the new cloud environment is designed to improve efficiency in the bank's operations. It consists of a private cloud platform designed, constructed, and operated in compliance with the Alliance Cloud, a standardized cloud model certified by the DIR-led Global Alliance for User-driven Cloud Computing, as well as a desktop service that features security countermeasures.
In introducing the new computing environment, DIR was in charge of designing and building the cloud platform and terminal environment. Fujitsu was responsible for providing hardware equipment, such as servers and computer terminals as well as building and delivering palm vein authentication systems.
KDDI was responsible for designing and building the bank's local area network. Going forward, the three companies intend to use Japanese-level quality, reliable solutions to promote the adoption of ICT within Myanmar's finance industry as well as among a variety of other companies.
Masami Yamamoto, President, Fujitsu Limited, said: "Fujitsu is honored to participate in this project to build an ICT environment for Myanmar's financial markets, which will be undergoing rapid modernization. Even prior to this project, Fujitsu has built cloud platforms that comply with the Alliance Cloud standards, making an array of proposals that leverage our cloud capabilities. We aim to utilize this expertise to support the development of Japanese-level quality cloud-based ICT resources in Myanmar and other Asian countries to contribute to the sustainable development of society."
