Improved data security through centralized management
In 2005, Mitsubishi Motor’s main locations in Japan operated approximately 1000 servers of various types. Most of them had been introduced and were operated by individual departments. Through server consolidation, Mitsubishi intended to realize a significant decrease in TCO, unification of management fundamentals and service levels, increased data security, centralized management, and improved availability.
Today, Riverbed SteelHead appliances play an ever-increasing role in providing a more efficient IT strategy for Mitsubishi Motors. SteelHead appliances now consolidate the Company's Kansai region and headquarters, and Mitsubishi intends further consolidation in areas such as CAD applications and mail servers that are currently running separately within each location, and file servers at key overseas locations.
