Fujitsu Launches New Platform to Support Web3 Developers Globally
TOKYO, Feb. 6, 2023 -- Fujitsu today announced the launch of its "Fujitsu Web3 Acceleration Platform," offering a developmental environment as well as various service APIs based on blockchain and high-performance computing technologies. Fujitsu envisions the platform as a future community for users in start-ups, partner companies, and universities working to build the next generation of Web3 applications and services.
The new platform will connect users to Fujitsu’s existing suite of Computing as a Service ("CaaS") applications, including "CaaS HPC" and "CaaS Digital Annealer", as well as the "Fujitsu Computing as a Service Data e-TRUST" ("Data e-TRUST") module. Data e-Trust leverages Fujitsu’s "IDentitY eXchange" ("IDYX") and "Chain Data Lineage" technologies for ensuring the authenticity of transactions and secure data distribution and utilization between different systems and services with blockchain and other data verification tools. Moving forward, Fujitsu also plans additional technology modules for the platform, including its transparent trust transfer technology and "ConnectionChain" technology.
Fujitsu will provide access to the platform free of charge to select participants of its global partner program, "Fujitsu Accelerator Program for CaaS" to drive co-creation of new Web3 services. Program partners will be able to begin to use the platform in Japan from March 2023, with availability step-by-step expanding to partners globally starting in fiscal 2023.
The platform will contribute to the realization of a rich ecosystem that empowers users to create new applications for Web3, allowing for new ways to interact, create, and share data freely and securely for use cases including digital content rights management, contracts, business transactions and processes.
"Web3 is still in its infancy, but it has the potential to open up a whole new world. To achieve this goal, it is important not only to research and develop advanced technologies, but also to create new services, said Hiroyoshi Miwa of Kwansei Gakuin University. "In the post COVID era, there are efforts to make use of Web3 in the field of education and research. We will also use this platform to challenge various innovative initiatives and contribute to social implementation at our institution."
Under its vision for Fujitsu Uvance to achieve a sustainable world, Fujitsu ultimately aims to offer a Web3 platform that allows companies and individual users to connect to co-create transformational, value-added solutions to a variety of issues facing society.
Services and Technologies
In addition to blockchain and verification technologies offered through "Data e-TRUST," the new platform will provide users access to Fujitsu’s world-leading, advanced computing technologies and applications including "Fujitsu Computing as a Service HPC" and "Fujitsu Computing as a Service Digital Annealer" for developing and running simulations, AI and combinatorial optimization applications. These technologies will allow users to analyze and evaluate multiple scenarios for formulating solutions to various societal issues based on data that ensures trust.
Moving forward, Fujitsu will step-by-step provide further prototype functions for Web3 leveraging Fujitsu’s transparent trust-ensuring technology and "ConnectionChain" technology for co-creation partners via CaaS.
