The Synchrotron Radiation Center at Hiroshima University runs with the aid of a Draco tera enterprise matrix switch
Hiroshima Synchrotron Radiation Center (HiSOR) is part of the Graduate School of Science at Hiroshima University. It is a world-leading research center, carrying out synchrotron radiation research in the vacuum ultraviolet - soft x-ray range.
Researchers need to be able to access a variety of application programs running on the remote servers together with accumulated data on large storage arrays. The facility operates on a 24-hour per day basis and must operate with no interruption.
Interconnection between the servers and individual researcher workstations is achieved by means of an 80-port Draco tera enterprise KVM matrix switch using both Cat X and fiber cabling.
“This IHSE matrix switch was installed over one year ago and has not given me any administrative problems. It is 100% reliable we are about to acquire some additional fiber I/O boards to upgrade our overall capability.” Goto san, chief engineer at HiSOR
