MoE seeks server infrastructure partner

The Ministry of Education is advertising for a supplier to renew much of its existing production and disaster recovery server infrastructure, and to provide implementation and support services.

The Ministry has issued a request for proposals (RFP) in a bid to modernise the server platform in its Wellington production datacentre and its Auckland pre-production and disaster recovery centre, optimised for its application workloads which are being progressively virtualised.

The Ministry’s test and development server environments have already been virtualised.

It says many of the current systems are more than five years old and are a business risk.

The most urgent needs are to establish a “robust and responsive” disaster recovery platform, improve utilisation of the server platform and be in a position to enable a low-risk

migration to infrastructure as a service.

The supply and support agreement the Ministry had been using to source servers has now expired, and it needs a “proven” supplier for the modernisation project, in accordance with government procurement policy, according to the RFP document.

“The Ministry intends to secure a collaborative relationship with a high-quality technology and support service provider,” the document states.

Responses close on 5 November.
