The University of Canterbury is looking for credible providers who have the capability, experience and infrastructure to deliver and support a proven and robust File Storage solution.
We require a large capacity Software Defined Storage (SDS) solution for unstructured file storage for the whole University, capable of delivering high performance storage for hot data and low cost storage for cold data. It will have tiers of storage at differing price/performance levels including an Object Store for archive data. Disaster recovery for the solution will be provided in our Secondary Data Centre (SDC), but not all data will need to be replicated. Expansion will be simple, modular and will scale to very high capacities. It will be able to seamlessly use public cloud storage as a tier
A separate RFP activity will be run in parallel to this one for UC’s ‘Compute’ storage requirements. Interested suppliers can submit an RFP response for either one or both of UC’s storage requirements.
This is an exciting opportunity to be a long term business partner with Canterbury University.
