CeBIT 2014 has opened its doors for experts and companies from all over the world and I would like to tell you briefly what has happened so far and tell you about the “hits” on the Fujitsu Stand which you should not miss.
A lot of attention before the official CeBIT start was given to our new mobile devices which visitors, journalists and bloggers have been trying out.
The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK U904 Ultrabook™ with 4G/LTE is certainly one of these mobile highlights. The thinnest Business Ultrabook in the 14“ category has been nominated as a “CeBIT Highlight Product“ and is the world’s first Ultrabook which has integrated non-contact, biometric security technology as an option: the Fujitsu Palm Vein Sensor. If you want to learn more about the LIFEBOOK U904, please follow our “Insider blog” here
Olaf Leis (Lower-Saxony State Minister for the Economy, Employment and Transport) visited us at our CeBIT stand in hall 7 on Monday evening – and the focus of his visit was our Palm Secure technology. He took a good look at the “Secure Gate“ which manages really secure access. Authentication of a person’s identity is via the non-contact recognition of the unique vein pattern in an individual’s hand.
Today the Intel Innovation Award for a new concept in data center technology was awarded. Jens-Peter Seick, Senior Vice President of the Fujitsu Product Development Group received the prize on our behalf.
And there are lots of new features for Fujitsu vShape!
The proven vShape reference architecture from Fujitsu integrates now NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP. The virtualization platform vShape is based on Fujitsu x86 PRIMERGY servers, switches from Brocade as well as NetApp Storage systems. It offers companies a shared scale-out infrastructure which is more flexible and is ideally suited to handle the almost unlimited growth in a company’s data volume.

That is just some of the highlights on our CeBIT stand. If you want to see more, you have until Friday – we look forward to seeing you in Hall 7, A28.
Over 200 journalists and bloggers representing IT, economic and daily press publications have had an initial look in Munich and Hamburg at the trends and innovations which will be shown at CeBIT 2014, the world’s largest IT trade fair which will be taking place between 10th and 14th March 2014 in Hannover.
This year Fujitsu will be playing a large part in the design of CeBIT Previews. In his keynote “IT Security“ Jürgen Walter, Executive Vice President and CEO, Fujitsu Central Europe, explained the challenges facing IT managers and how state-of-the-art devices and solutions can increase overall security. Walter used the evening podium discussion to answer questions about the handling of Big Data from users and scientists.
The LIFEBOOK U904 Ultrabook™ was one of the big attractions: Thinner than all the other devices in the 14“ business category the fully equipped Ultrabook not only has PalmSecure handvein sensors but also a complete LAN interface which it can fold out. The journalist reactions clearly showed that Fujitsu is “innovative and right on target” when it comes to IT security and “Made in Germany”.
The smart Ultrabook was the proud winner of the “PREVIEW Award“ for “Innovation at CeBIT” – the nomination coming from all the attending journalists representing specialist IT, economic and national publications.

Today we would like to give you a first glimpse on the new Fujitsu Server PRIMERGY Systems. Tomorrow’s systems and solutions will be developed around human needs and activities. All aspects of the infrastructures, applications, their operation and maintenance are to be optimized accordingly. Servers will design the IT more efficiently in this new world. They will increase the performance of applications as a result of perfect interaction between storage, server and I/O. They will save energy and cooling costs on a scale never before seen in order to use existing resources optimally and help IT to become a business advantage more quickly. The next generation of the Fujitsu server PRIMERGY family is the first step in this far-reaching mission.
With Fujitsu’s new PRIMERGY systems, customers are able to turn their technology into a competitive advantage due to:
- Enhanced Energy Optimization: This allows customers to save energy and cooling costs on an unprecedented scale, with an additional saving of up to 27 per cent, while ensuring system availability even under extreme conditions.
- Converged Performance: The new generation of dual-socket PRIMERGY servers increase the performance of applications as a result of perfect interaction between storage, server and I/O.
- Holistic Server Lifecycle Management: PRIMERGY systems make ICT work more efficiently. Up to 55 per cent savings on running costs and increased productivity enable organizations to redeploy scarce IT resources to value-creating tasks.
- Global Lifecycle Excellence: Fujitsu’s broad portfolio of services and tools provide the added benefit of reducing costs throughout the lifecycle, shortening project times and increasing the availability of applications and services.
