Usage scenarios

Example: Use as a development environment
When a customer needs a development environment, by using this service the resources required can be prepared quickly and at lower costs than implementing a physical server of their own.
Example: New Service
Small businesses can create a new service with less risk of operational difficulties. If the business were to commission a new server in their own Data Centre there is a requirement to procure ICT resources to maintain it. This requirement is eliminated when using the Fujitsu service, as Fujitsu maintains all of the servers within the Data Centre However, if the customer would like to purchase a new server for their own data centre then this service can be used to assist them in validating the size of the solution prior to purchasing the equipment.
Example: Disaster Recovery
This service can be used to supplement a customers disaster recovery solution by providing server environments in a short timeframe
