Hastings council plans infrastructure overhaul

Hastings District Council (HDC) has invited responses from potential providers of new server and storage infrastructure, management tools and operating systems for one of its sites. The site has been used as a disaster recovery location for HDC’s peer failover servers but under the project it will become the location for HDC’s production systems. The infrastructure there is approaching the end of its lifecycle and support contract. In the next 12 to 18 months, the council also wants to replace server and storage infrastructure in another site, the server room at its Civic Administration Building.

The council employs 360 staff. It maintains about 90 Windows servers, of which 70 are virtualised. HDC’s IT department oversees about 30TB of raw storage, split between a 20TB SAN the administration building and a 10TB SAN at the other site. Storage utilisation is in the 90th percentile. It is a financial member of the Local Government Association and the GSB contract, and has existing relationships with Gen-i, Datacom and Zintel. The deadline for responses is 24 November.
