Home Industry Deals Toll turns to HDS for storage revamp

Transport and logistics provider Toll Group has revamped its data storage with Hitachi Data Systems products.

Following a period of growth through acquisition, Toll found itself with a diverse range of storage systems which was negatively affecting application performance.

Following a review, the company selected HDS to supply new storage infrastructure.

The HDS products chosen were Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP), Hitachi Command Suite and Hitachi NAS Platform (HNAS).

Toll's head of infrastructure, development and implementation, global information systems David Hyland said "This has been one of those rare projects where you set out to do something and achieve it in a set timeframe, on budget and without major issues.

"The Hitachi team was a great support and ensured that we had zero interruptions to our business.

"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."
