Saitama University: Preparation of a Platform for a Virtual Environment to Centralize Data Management
At Saitama University, this has five faculties gathered on a single campus with thriving intercommunication. When performing maintenance of the university data infrastructure, they were looking for a system with excellent controllability and serviceability. When consolidating servers and clients by virtualization, they focused on compatibility with networks and servers. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. The university has adopted the Cisco server solution Cisco Unified Computing System as that platform. Using Cisco UCS and Cisco Catalyst 6500 (VSS) connected to a 10 Gbps network, they were able to achieve a highly reliable environment that can be used without focusing on virtualization.
