Home Depot Set to Install Hitachi Storage in New Stores

Thursday Jul 19th 2001 by Jennifer MacAdam

To install Hitachi Freedom Storage(TM) Thunder 9200(TM) storage systems for 450 new stores

Hitachi Data Systems announced that Home Depot has agreed to purchase hundreds of Hitachi Freedom Storage(TM) Thunder 9200(TM) storage systems for 450 new stores now being built across the United States. This agreement extends Home Depot's long-term relationship with Hitachi Data Systems in which it had previously deployed Hitachi's 5700 E storage arrays in more than 1,000 Home Depot stores.

"We selected Hitachi Data Systems because we were looking for a highly scalable, 24/7, reliable storage system that could scale from very small applications all the way to the data center," said Tom Larson, director of Technical Services for Home Depot. "When you're growing several hundred businesses a year, it's absolutely mandatory to have a robust, highly available storage environment that provides return on investment. And Hitachi Data Systems filled those billsand more."

According to the company, the Hitachi Freedom Storage (TM) Thunder will now provide the foundation for Home Depot's day-to-day business operations such as e-mail subsystems, labor scheduling and inventory management, sales information, as well as for newer applications including training programs, online videos and CPT.
