IIJ Launches IIJ GIO Unified Operation Management Service
TOKYO-October 10, 2012-Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ, NASDAQ: IIJI, TSE1: 3774), one of Japan's leading Internet access and comprehensive network solutions providers, today announced the October 15, 2012, release of the IIJ GIO Unified Operation Management Service, a new addition to the IIJ GIO Service line up that provides system monitoring and operation for both cloud-based systems and on-premise systems.
The IIJ GIO Unified Operation Management Service provides centralized system monitoring and operation for systems built in the cloud or on the client's premises. System operations and usage status are monitored on behalf of the client and action is taken in the event of a system failure-from notifying the client of the failure to locating the source of the failure and bringing the system back online. From simple monitoring of small systems to advanced failure recovery of large systems, the client can pick from a wide range of system monitoring and operating options to suit the situation. Use of cloud services is increasing, and this is driving the need for centralized management of both cloud-based and on-premise systems. The IIJ GIO Unified Operation Management Service makes it easy for clients to fully leverage the benefits of cloud-based and on-premise systems.
IIJ's system monitors the client's system 24/7. The operating status of equipment, usage percentages, and other key metrics are monitored and a notice sent when an anomaly or a failure is detected. This monitoring feature can be used as a SaaS, which allows the client to change service settings at anytime.
With the operation service, the client's system is operated 24/7. When an alert is received, the client is notified by telephone, and standard actions are taken in accordance with the standard operational guide to start the server or other necessary actions. IIJ can also investigate the source of the failure or perform system recovery actions following the client's guidelines. Standard operational reports and monthly reports can be viewed online via a dedicated user portal site.
Private connectivity service
The private connectivity service provides private connectivity between the IIJ monitoring system network and systems located at the IIJ Data Center or the client's premises. This service can also be used with the client's own IP addresses or with a redundant connection. When connecting with the client's on-premise systems, a dedicated line must be used.
IIJ will continue to work to improve our outsourcing services to increase convenience for our clients.
