Abstract

京都工芸繊維大学では 2012 年 12 月に,10 年以上使用してきた 1000BASE-X を基盤としたネットワークを更新し,10GBASE-X を基本とするネットワークインフラ KITnet5 を導入した.KITnet5 は,イーサネットとファブリックの両方に対応した Brocade Networks 社のボックス型スイッチである VDX6720 を集約スイッチとして使用した.また,約 10km 離れた松ヶ崎キャンパスと嵯峨キャンパスを,SINET データセンター経由で 10GBASE-ZR を用いて接続した.これにより,複数キャンパスを跨る SAN を構築することができるようになり,コンピュータシステム自体を複数キャンパスに跨って構築が行える基盤となった.本報告では,本構成を導入するにあたっての経緯や,利点・欠点および一年間の運用経験などについて述べる.In our university, we have updated our network infrastructure from Cisco based 1-gigabit Ethernet system to Brocade based 10-Gigabit Ethernet system in December 2012. We use Brocade VDX Switch for aggregation Switch. It enables not only IP networking but also providing Fibre Channel and/or Fibre Channel over IP/Ethernet. Moreover, it provides a connectivity between Matsugasaki and Saga campus (far away about 10km) with 10GBASE-ZR Ethernet via Data Center of our region. It enables a Campus-wide IP Storage Area Network (SAN), then computer system can be operated with distributed environments, so our computer system will have redundant feature against disasters. In this paper, we show merits, demerits and experience of our system.
