Toei Animation

Toei Animation delivers a number of popular products around the world. Toei Animation Co., Ltd., with its corporate philosophy of becoming “a leader in products that provide dreams and aspirations to children all over the world,” has been creating animated films and TV programs for more than half a century. The company has produced more than 10,000 titles including Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, One Piece, and Pretty Cure, among other world-class hits.

Toei Animation provides an information page for each product and operates an e-commerce website, Toei Animation Online Shop, that sells its character goods to fans around the world, from young children to adults. These online services are provided by the server virtualization infrastructure that Toei Animation built and operates. The infrastructure operates approximately 40 virtualization servers, including servers that host the corporate website and individual production pages, as well as back-end application and database servers. The infrastructure provided more than enough performance when the server virtualization technologies were first introduced in 2007. However, with increased usage coming from both domestic and international markets, response times were impacted—especially during peak periods.

We selected NetApp products that have an impeccable track record in our operations. Although the NetApp EF550 is a new product line, it was only natural for us to select it.
