Wairarapa health board to virtualise servers

The Wairarapa District Health Board plans to consolidate around 90 percent of its servers in a VMware-based virtualised environment, as part of a new backup system.

It has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a service provider to undertake the project and provide ongoing services.

According to the RFP documents, the board plans to consolidate about 90 percent of the more than 30 Windows-based servers in its main server room and disaster recovery/business continuance centre into a VMware Infrastructure 3 environment.

Most of these servers run Windows Server 2003, although some operate on Windows Server 2000.

The board needs the successful provider to design and install a disaster recovery server solution, provide training to the team that will manage the servers and supply a replacement server for the backup/restore system software to run on.

The deadline for proposals has been extended from 31 March to Wednesday, April 2. Details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders Service website under ICCNZ reference 21217.
