I suspect it was less "a Japanese cloud solution" and more "will this solution be around in 5 years once AWS/Azure/Google have completed their DC roll out to fully support their ambitions?"

Fujitsu (and Oracle/IBM/SAP/Rackspace/others) are significantly behind in both the infrastructure stakes and the customer experience. Now the big providers have "government" facilities and are winning large government contracts across multiple countries, I think its just a matter of time before the competition is anything but niche. Or you're locked into an under performing outsourcing contract with no easy escape for a few years...
