Description of the contract

Expressions of interest are invited from suitably experienced suppliers for the provision of ICT hardware and professional services to assist in the design and deployment of a virtualised server estate at Broadland District Council’s Thorpe Lodge offices in Norwich, Norfolk. The project will include a review of the existing storage and backup infrastructure.

The contract covers the replacement of 28 physical servers at Thorpe Lodge with a new virtualised server environment. The Council also intends to implement a centralised data storage volume, utilising entry level SAN technology to accommodate the continuing growth in data (current 5TB), and to facilitate effective and rapid backing-up of data to disk and tape. This may include off-site backup direct to disk at a secondary disaster recovery site in Norwich, utilising existing infrastructure.
