Fujitsu Unveils ScanSnap Cloud

New Feature Enables ScanSnap iX-Series Customers To Deliver Scans Automatically To Their Favorite Cloud Service, Without The Need For A Computer or Mobile Device

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujitsu, the market leader in document imaging scanners, today unveiled ScanSnap Cloud, a new service that enables ScanSnap customers to streamline workflows by delivering scanned data directly to their favorite cloud service without the need for a computer or mobile device. ScanSnap Cloud eliminates the old multi-step process to scan and save important information. With the push of a button, customers can now simply send data directly from their ScanSnap iX500 or iX100 scanners to popular cloud-based services such as Dropbox, Evernote, Expensify, Google, and OneDrive.

Transform Scanning Workflows with ScanSnap Cloud
With a quick push of the Scan button, ScanSnap Cloud automatically classifies scanned data into four categories: documents, receipts, business cards and photos. Customers can simply set profiles for each category by selecting the cloud service of their choice in the free, dedicated app, and ScanSnap Cloud automatically sorts and delivers the data to the predetermined cloud service to provide convenient, device-less scanning. View the ScanSnap Cloud concept video to learn more about the new service.

Intelligent and Innovative features of ScanSnap Cloud:

  • Automatic Image Processing: Before delivering scanned documents to customer-selected cloud services, ScanSnap Cloud optimizes scanned images with automatic paper-size and color detection, automatic page rotation and blank-page removal.
  • Increased Productivity: Simplify your workflow by delivering scans automatically and intelligently to your favorite cloud providers.
  • Smart Naming: Files are automatically named using extracted keywords and dates from the scanned documents.
  • Security: ScanSnap Cloud utilizes Microsoft Azure™ which has extensive operational experience protecting cloud data with its robust security platform.

"Combining the ease-of-use of ScanSnap scanners with ScanSnap Cloud's seamless integration to a variety of popular cloud services further validates our commitment to providing the industry's most comprehensive scanning solutions."

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
