Part Number

When planning and preparing for the installation of a storage system, the user assumes the following responsibilities:
  • Purchase site-planning services from Hitachi Global Services.
  • Provide the space, people, and tools for unpacking, installing, and operating the storage system.
  • Confirm that the path from where the storage system is delivered to the installation site is large enough to support the storage system. Take into account all ramps, walkways, and elevators and possible obstructions.
  • Maintain the proper environmental conditions for the storage system. For optimal performance, storage systems require controlled environmental conditions that are often best facilitated through raised flooring and under-floor air conditioning. It is the responsibility of the customer to monitor this environment and ensure continued conformance with the recommended environmental specifications.
  • Provide adequate power facilities for the storage system. Adequate power is necessary to ensure reliable functioning of electronic equipment and for the safety of the customer's installation. The customer is responsible for procuring, installing, and maintaining adequate power to the equipment.
  • Supply the network connections and external cabling required by the storage system.
