KIRIN Holdings which has various business corporations, such as liquor, a drink and food, and medical supplies, is employing the system as "private cloud." The companies including the system of Mercian which had a capital tie-up, collect most systems of a group company into two of data centers. Furthermore, KIRIN uses those data centers from about 500 branch distributed all over the country, and uses two data centers and a hosting service properly.

The server of the 1st data center which is using the package for Widows/Linux is the target of virtualization fundamentally. Now, about 30 percent of all the servers cope with virtual environment. There is the about 700 number of a server on the whole including information systems, such as operating systems including a main frame, groupware, a portal, mail, etc. Since full use of virtual technology is made, if one virtual machine is counted among one set, the total number of servers will amount to about 1000 sets.

Private cloud of KIRIN is not completion now. Virtual technology is used and concentration of the further server hardware is advanced. The server which is applying as a virtual machine now is about 30% of the whole. This will be increased to about 50% in 2010. Therefore, reexamination of a server network will become the point from now on.
