Network Environment

IMG_20210331_network-1.jpg The University network environment includes the Education Network, which connects exercise rooms, the Research Network, which connects the laboratories and centers, the Clerical Network, which connects sections within the Library, the Administrative Office, and the Student Affairs Division, and the Common Network, which connects all these fundamental networks. 40GigaEthernet is employed to keep the mainstream of daily information on the network secure and stable. And VPN+VNC or SSH connection also enable us to use the network through the Internet. Campus-wide wireless LAN can be used in almost all facilities, including all classrooms, cafeteria, and the Library.

Support System

The backup support system is located in the network room within the ISTC. Various groups of servers, which are vital to the server-client system for the University of Aizu, are in operation 24 hours per day. A power supply equipment called "CVCF (Constant Voltage Constant Frequency)" is employed to take measures against power suspension so that data will not be lost by accident.

Major Servers

Linux Standard Environment Servers These are used for remote connection from inside and outside the university. With VPN + VNC connection or SSH connection, students and faculty members can use the CentOS environment equivalent to the computer excersize room from their laboratory or home PC.
File servers Individual data for undergraduate and graduate students and faculty members, common files for projects and club activities, etc. are stored in these servers. Disk capacity for individual data allocated to an individual is; 6G byte for students, 20G byte for faculty members. Backup support is provided by means of generation management in order not to lose data by accident.
Command servers These servers provide licensed software and free software, etc. for computer exercise rooms and hardware workshops.
