Abstract: 

We are providing storage services more than 20 years with large-scale NAS systems in JAIST for central data managing whole over our institute. Recently, construction of the private cloud environment based on virtualization technology complicate the dependency structure of systems, and also makes it increasingly difficult to operate our storage systems. In this presentation, we talk about case study and demands for storage systems from a customer viewpoint, based on our knowledge from deploying and operating our storage systems. Furthermore, the non-technical matter is also important in operating storage systems, i.e. we need to get good support for trouble shooting. We mention the consideration from this point with story in Japan. Note: This presentation will be jointly-conducted with SNIA-J (SNIA Japan Branch).
