AGEF implements EMC information infrastructure technology

It is centralizing the IP storage on an EMC Celerra NS80G network-attached storage (NAS) gateway

By CBR Staff Writer

Aoyama Gakuin Educational Foundation, a Japan-based educational institute, has engaged EMC to design and implement a next-generation information and communication technology infrastructure.

Using EMC storage, software and services, Aoyama Gakuin Educational Foundation’s (AGEF) new IT environment is expected to provide improved operational efficiencies and secure, reliable access to information critical to the education process. AGEF includes university undergraduate and graduate programs, a women’s junior college, junior and senior high schools, an elementary school and a kindergarten.

Working with EMC Global Services, Aoyama Gakuin is consolidating its enterprise storage on an EMC Symmetrix DMX-4 networked storage system and centralizing its IP storage on an EMC Celerra NS80G network-attached storage (NAS) gateway.

For disaster recovery, AGEF will use EMC Symmetrix Remote Data Facility software and EMC Celerra Replicator software to replicate storage area network and NAS data located at its primary data center of head campus to a remote site located at local campus always. The RSA enVision platform will provide automated security and event information management. AGEF is also using EMC Consulting Services to establish log management policies and rules.

Ken Matsuzawa, chairman for board of trustees at Aoyama Gakuin Educational Foundation, said: Our new information infrastructure will enable our students and faculty to access and share information and research more freely and reliably with one another and academics worldwide, which will enrich their educational experience. We also will benefit operationally since it will take us less time and resources to manage a centralized IT environment that is more reliable and secure.
