Hitachi Data Systems partners with Toll Group

Inks agreement to consolidate, upgrade and rationalise Toll’s data storage infrastructure

Storage and virtualisation vendor and wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Hitachi Data Systems, has partnered with transport and logistics company, Toll Group, to consolidate, upgrade and rationalise Toll’s data storage infrastructure for the next five years.

The infrastructure solution deployed comprises Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP), Hitachi Command Suite and Hitachi NAS Platform (HNAS), as well as Hitachi Command Suite integrated with Hitachi Dynamic Tiering (HDT).

Toll Group global information systems infrastructure, development and implementation head, David Hyland, said a period of acquisitions resulted in the company having disparate storage infrastructure, posing a strain on legacy IT systems and impacting application performance.

He said Toll Group determined Hitachi Data Systems was best suited to support its strategy for meeting key requirements such as ease of migration, opportunity to achieve 24/7 uptime, and the ability to run current and future business critical applications.

According to Hyland, Toll has seen a number of benefits since implementing the HDS platform.

“The change was cost-neutral, but we achieved significant performance, scale and reliability improvements over previous systems. In one instance backup elapsed time had reduced from 12 hours to four,” he said.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
