Server Migration for a Japanese Corporation with Multiple Sites

In order to improve access speeds and stability, mail servers and file servers at the headquarters location were migrated to the IIJ GIO US service. A dedicated project team was launched and IIJ America ran the entire project, from server site survey to planning to migration.

Project Overview

  • Provide various cloud services and migrate servers.
  • Provide Internet connectivity to each office and implement a managed VPN to the cloud.
  • Locations: 5
  • Migration period: 3 months ~
  • Pre-migration environment
    • Mail servers and file servers located at HQ location.
    • HQ using a T1 Internet connection.
  • Pre-migration issues needing improvement
    • All employees unable to access required information in the event of an Internet outage at the HQ location.
    • Access extremely slow when traveling or connecting from home.

      Upgrade to high-speed circuit to provide the same speeds as when servers were on the local area network (LAN).
    • T1 Internet service for each branch office
      Each location provided with a circuit for managed VPN with GIO as the hub for one-stop internal network, for complete end to end proactive response by IIJA, from fault troubleshooting to service restoration.
