Canterbury DHB seeks new data protection system

The Canterbury District Health Board is currently accepting Requests for Information (RFI) for a new data protection system to be put in place.

The DHB currently needs to protect 70TB of data - an amount that has doubled in the past three years and that is expected to double again in the next three years. It also has a storage pool for disk staging and de-duplication.

The DHB runs HP SANs and uses HP switches for fibre connectivity. It wants to scale these SANs over the life of the storage and make disk upgrades. It has a mix of physical server types, which are mostly Microsoft servers, and 142 virtual machines on 11 physical ESX hosts. An additional 20 Microsoft servers are expected to be added to the network in the next two years.

The DHB says backups are now extending beyond the available backup window and a lot of time is being spent on administering the system, so a new data protection system is becoming increasingly important. It wants to minimise staff resources required to perform backups and standardise the number of management servers and associated licences.

RFI submissions close on 1 November.
