            German Historical Institute in Rome

            Founded in 1888, the German Historical Institute in Rome is one of Germany’s oldest foreign historical organisations. The institute’s activities revolve around historical research and it offers scholars a library collection that stretches from the late medieval period to the end of the Second World War, containing over 157,000 books and 645 present-day journals. Research is at the heart of the work at the German Historical Institute in Rome. Some years ago, work began on building multimedia databases to make the research accessible to the public. These developments forced the institute to think about how it could streamline operations to achieve necessary savings. anks to the support of Fujitsu and ‘Select Expert Partner’ Datamate, the institute embarked on a virtualisation process that allowed it to replace machines that had come to the end of their lifecycles, and lay the foundations for future growth, without having to worry about buying new, specially-made hardware. The project also resulted in better quality cooperation with external partners.Tags: IT infrastructure
