Border watch calls for backup

Border watch calls for backup

The New Zealand Customs Service plans to upgrade its backup and recovery system, which could include centralised backup servers.

It has released a registration of interest (ROI) request for providers of enterprise backup and restoration hardware and software.

According to the ROI documents, Customs is looking for organisations with a track record of providing similar offerings.

It expects to receive proposals in the range of $300,000 to $450,000, which includes hardware, software and all services including installation and implementation costs.

Customs operates two data centres in Auckland and Wellington. The Wellington centre is for data recovery. Both data centres have a mix of IBM blade chassis and blades, HP Windows-based Intel servers and Sun servers.

According to the ROI, Customs is also interested in exploring options for the centralised backup of servers at remote sites in the future. It operates 24 servers in 17 sites.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, May 7. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ number 21396.
