Fujitsu is set to open a server sales company in the US as part of its move away from the mainframe business.

The Japanese giant will start the operation next year, according to the Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Reuters reported.

Fujitsu declined to comment on the story, but confirmed it was trying to get out of the mainframe business and into the more lucrative server market.

Amdahl, a wholly owned Fujitsu subsidiary, this week announced plans to shelve its mainframe business after 30 years in the business. CEO Yasushi Tajiri described the move, which will see the company switch to System 390-type servers, as difficult but necessary. ®
