FUJIFILM chooses Sungard Availability Services cloud to scale up in a flash

25th February 2015

Fujifilm Black RevFUJIFILM’s popular FUJIFILM Imagine On Line & Mobile platform allows people to print their digital photos on a variety of items including photo books, mugs, coasters, clothing and keyrings to make truly personal gifts and mementos. 

Images are stored in the cloud for editing at home or in one of 300 FUJIFILM shops or kiosks, with images either printed in store or sent by post.  If consumers were unable to access their photos instantly the FUJIFILM Imagine On Line & Mobile service would grind to a halt and FUJIFILM’s reputation would suffer irreparable damage. Consequently, high availability around the clock is critical.

““The customers of today demand instant service. If they couldn’t download their photos from the cloud fairly quickly they would soon move their photos to a competitor site so having Sungard AS as our partner gives me peace of mind. As GM of the company I can say it really is the calibre of people who are critical and the Sungard AS team have proved themselves to be exceptional.””

— Kyran O’Kelly, General Manager for FUJIFILM

Business Challenge

For FUJIFILM availability is paramount, ensuring the images at the heart of its business are always readily accessible. With ambitions to expand worldwide, it needed a scalable, flexible and secure technology platform provided by a company with global reach.  For this, they entered into discussions with Sungard Availability Services.

Solution

Managed Private Cloud.

““I like having the backing of a large, international company but the flexibility and helpful attitude of a smaller business – we get the best of both worlds and our two companies are a good cultural match.””

— Kyran O’Kelly, General Manager for FUJIFILM
