New Sun supplier sought for National Library

Government bookworm The National Library of New Zealand is seeking a preferred supplier to help revamp its Sun Microsystems server and storage gear as it looks to boost its online services.

According to request for proposal (RFP) documents released today, the library wants to work closely with a supplier that can become significant involved in the asset lifecycle management of its Sun equipment.

The relationship may involve regular asset planning with the library’s strategic and technical staff so that it is able to achieve its vision, the documents state.

The library plans to add more hardware to meet increased demand for its existing services and to cater for new online services.

In the first year of the contract alone, the library expects its need for Sun hardware and storage to increase to support activities relating to implementing its Digital Content Strategy, including phase 2 of the rollout of its People’s Network.

Its other plans include building a National Digital Heritage Archive, digitising material from the Alexander Turnbull Library, increasing the volume of digital content available through a single search, and implementing a new information access programme to connect libraries to international search engines and the resources of 57,000 libraries worldwide.

In addition, the library expects to replace a number of its existing servers and storage over the next three years, including one 13 x V240 server and one SunFire E25K machine, along with related storage hardware.

The library only wants enquiries from authorised executive or principal Sun Partner Advantage resellers.

The RFP closes on Friday, March 28. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders Service website under ICNNZ reference 21107.
