Consolidation of 20 Servers Over 3 Campuses Through Virtualization
Tokyo Denki University (TDU) consists of 3 campuses in Tokyo, Chiba and Saitama. Their requirement was to upgrade their infrastructure servers to provide a networked service. To master these requirements TDU chose Fujitsu. Now a single location is configured with 12 Linux servers (PRIMERGY RX600 S2) and 1 disk array (ETERNUS3000 Model 500). This improved the availability and scalability of the system, and made operation and maintenance of the system much more efficient. As a pioneer of large-scale virtualization in a university environment, TDU's server consolidation has drawn a great deal of attention from the information systems personnel of other universities.
