Yahoo Japan

Yahoo! Japan, originally formed as a joint venture between Yahoo! and SoftBank, is one of the most popular internet advertising, search engines and e-commerce sites in the country and employs over 6000 people.

Due to having such scale and volume of users, Yahoo! Japan required outside help to build their IaaS (infrastructure as a service) solution and OSS distributed storage solution. In 2013, Yahoo! Japan turned to Canonical and the two companies have grown the relationship ever since.

During unexpected incidents, the cause needs to be tracked down to the OS layer and being able to ask a professional is a big advantage. I think Canonical is the only company capable of offering this robust support

Mr. Sakata, Cloud Development Leader, Yahoo! Japan

Using Ubuntu and a wide range of Canonical’s management tools, Yahoo! Japan has been able to reduce both CAPEX and OPEX costs while successfully building and operating a large scale IaaS environment.

In this case study, learn how Yahoo! Japan:

  • Deployed an OpenStack private cloud with 1PB of Ceph storage across three regions using MAAS and Juju.
  • Benefited from the reassurance and expertise of Canonical engineers through Ubuntu Advantage to ensure unexpected incidents are kept to a minimum.
  • Have future-proofed themselves by taking advantage of ESM (Extended Security Maintenance) for security patches until April 2028.
