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.
