水面下の活動 Windows Azure MVPを中心に重要なコミュニケーションを支援



このようなサイトの負荷を軽減させるため、幾つかのパートナー企業様、およびWindows Azure MVPの冨田 順さん、酒井 達明さん、大和屋 貴仁さん、およびハンドル名“割と普通”さんが活躍するJapan Windows Azure ユーザーグループが中心となり、クラウドサービスを活用してミラーサイトを構築しました。





また、シグマコンサルティングでWindows Azure MVPの橋本圭一さんとサイトコア様のご協力によって構築されたMSN東日本大震災情報ポータルも、Windows Azureプラットフォーム上で構築されています。さらにVisio MVPの野澤宇一郎さんは「現地のこえ」というサイトを構築し、岩手県、宮城県及び福島県のTwitterつぶやきから、安否情報や支援情報を収集・表示できるようにしました。


これらの活動は日々続いています。こうした震災関連情報の提供において、Webサイトへ負荷がかかっている、あるいは速やかに新たな情報提供サイトの構築を検討しているような自治体、企業や各種団体の方は、事務局 (電子メール)までご連絡下さい。

MVPs in Japan are among those working to shore up emergency communications on the heels of the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. Various government- and rescue agency-built Web sites designed to deliver vital information—such as shelter availability and current radiation levels—have been overwhelmed by high demand from the millions of people affected by the disaster. Microsoft, some of its partners and members of the Japan Windows Azure user group, including MVPs Sunao Tomita, Tatsuaki Sakai, Takahito Yamatoya, and an MVP who goes by the handle normalian, have joined forces to  create mirror sites using Cloud services to relieve pressure on the heavily loaded sites.

For those attempting to stay informed about current conditions or find critical resources, the mirror sites help create seamless access to information.

We’ve listed the emergency communication channels currently being supported by mirror Web sites below. In addition, MVP Keiichi Hashimoto, Sigma Consulting and Sitecore have contributed to developing an earthquake information portal on MSN using the Windows Azure platform. And MVP Uichiro Nozawa has created a site called Local Voices which collects tweets about safety and support issues from the Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima Prefectures.


Please note—ongoing support is available to organizations providing information to those affected by the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. For help developing a Web site or supporting a heavily loaded site, get in touch at
