“After implementing a new virtualized infrastructure based on Lenovo ThinkAgile HX servers, we have greatly improved the stability of our systems. Many teachers have commented that they encounter fewer issues and find that the applications we serve them are much more responsive and reliable.”

Mr. Yuichi Shimanuki

Assistant Director and Health Supervisor at the Yonezawa City Board of Education

Cutting operating costs by moving to HCI

Yonezawa City Office serves over 78,000 citizens. To ensure timely and cost efficient citizen services, the municipality consolidated siloed systems with a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) from Lenovo.

Customer Problem

With data volumes and demand for digital government services surging, how could Yonezawa City Office keep pace?

Lenovo Solution

Working with Lenovo and NEC PC, the municipality replaced its highly complex multi-vendor IT environment with a software-defined hyperconverged infrastructure based on Lenovo ThinkAgile HX650 V3 servers.

Business Impact

By embracing virtualization, Yonezawa City Office successfully reduced the cost of its IT operations while also ensuring around-the-clock availability and reliability for its core systems.

“One of the key benefits of HCI is that it enables you to start small and then expand as needed.”

Mr. Naoyuki Takahashi, Assistant Manager and Information System Chief, Policy Planning Division, Planning and Coordination Department, Yonezawa City Office
