John Key’s department goes to 'the cloud'

The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC) wants to replace its rack mounted servers with a virtualisation offering.

According to request for proposal documents released this week the DPMC has 21 rack mounted servers that have created islands of storage, but are not keeping up with the Department’s requirements.

DPMC has more than 600GB of data storage with a disk utilisation at a high of 20 percent and lows around seven percent across the islands of disks. With projected data growth of 30 percent year on year the current method of storage will not meet the needs of its users in the coming three years.

The DPMC is looking to utilise virtualisation to increase storage. It also requires the system to support the re-utilisation of the replace rack mounted option through reconfiguration.

The deadline for replies is Monday, April 6. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 25438.
