About The Customer

The Home Depot is an American multinational home improvement retail corporation that sells tools, construction products, appliances, and services. Home Depot is the largest home improvement retailer in the United States. In 2021, the company had 490,600 employees and more than $151 billion in revenue. The company is headquartered in incorporated Cobb County, Georgia, with an Atlanta mailing address.

It operates many big-box format stores across the United States (including the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands); all 10 provinces of Canada; and all 32 Mexican states and Mexico City. MRO company Interline Brands (now The Home Depot Pro) is also owned by The Home Depot, with 70 distribution centers across the United States.

The Solution

The Home Depot started by moving its non-production applications over to Nutanix, followed by the company’s production workloads, including those on Cloud Foundry. The Home Depot also virtualized its Apache Tomcat grid implementation and deployed a VDI environment using Nutanix as the underlying infrastructure platform. More than 98% of The Home Depot’s data center virtual workloads - including those supporting its retail operations, decision analytics, and supply chain - are now delivered by Nutanix.
