Bidders are asked to submit a formal tender for the refresh of the Disaster Recovery storage SAN for National Museums Liverpool.

NML are looking to purchase a new SAN with at minimum of 50 Tb useable storage to give five year’s growth capacity.

This solution should incorporate disks that will give a general performance increase across all servers.

The services of an IT solutions provider are required to complete the supply, installation and migration of the first 5 virtual servers to the new SAN. This should be a knowledge share activity to allow the NML IT Technical team to complete the migration of the rest of the virtual servers.

The IT Hardware provider needs to ensure delivery of a high quality system that not only matches the facilities requirements but will operate with minimal maintenance and maximum reliability.

Every effort has been made to ensure that the information within this document is correct and will deliver a full and complete working system. The IT solutions provider should be satisfied that they have allowed for all necessary hardware, interfaces and interconnections, as well as all configuration of all hardware and software, to deliver a fully operable system that will meet the client’s expectations.
