Ministry of Education upgrades with HP servers

The Ministry of Education will spend $2.28 million refreshing and virtualising its fleet of servers, as well as some likely additional costs for implementation services that are still being negotiated.

MED has selected Hewlett-Packard as its server, maintenance and support supplier to deliver selected server technologies, along with implementation and support services as part of the server platform modernisation project.

CIO Leanne Gibson says the ministry has a large server infrastructure of differing ages and requires mitigation of the respective risks, and consolidation of server technologies, in support of its application virtualisation programme.

She says the project is a one-off server purchase to bring the server platform into alignment and to support the ministry’s disaster recovery plan.

“The ministry continues to support the all-of-government programme. This one-off purchase will enable a low-risk migration to the government infrastructure-as-a-service and hardware supply initiatives at the appropriate time,” she says.

The aging physical server fleet will be replaced with virtualised stacks within the next six to nine months.

There are currently 274 physical servers. “We expect to replace these with a virtualised platform consisting of 33 low-end servers and 10 high-end servers,” Gibson says.
