Future-proof your data center with FUJITSU Software Infrastructure Manager (ISM)

With the global digital transformation in full swing, data centers are also gearing up by adding more and more compute, storage and networking devices to their existing infrastructures to support growing workloads, creating silos of resources. IT departments are tasked with supporting complex and diverse applications spread across multiple locations. Lack of real-time visibility, increased complexity and costs, and slow customer response time are the consequences which the FUJITSU Software Infrastructure Manager (ISM) is designed to solve. ISM is designed to 'de-silo' infrastructure with a converged infrastructure management platform that spans compute, storage, network switches and facilities, increasing operational efficiency and agility for the business needs of the future. ISM is now available in two flexible options!

ImageFujitsu Software Infrastructure Manager (ISM) is an integrated infrastructure management software that can help simplify end-to-end lifecycle operations across multiple data centers. ISM dramatically speeds up the deployment, operation and maintenance of data center resources, thereby increasing productivity of IT resources by shifting away from routine and manual tasks to more strategic projects that create value for the business. Through a single intuitive software package, it provides a consolidated view and control of all facility, compute, storage and networks, providing actionable insights leading to reduced customer response time. ISM simplifies data-center management by centralizing the operations and monitoring of the entire IT infrastructure environments in a single unified platform. This powerful software delivers major cost and power savings, combined with improved data center performance and uptime.

Choosing Fujitsu ISM helps organizations to accelerate the transition to software-defined data centers, and can automate deployment of agile and flexible infrastructures to manage fast growing workloads. The many functions that ISM delivers include:



To meet different business requirements, FUJITSU Software Infrastructure Manager now offers two flexible options: the ISM Essential and the ISM Advanced.
