Overview

The University of Canterbury is looking for credible providers who have the capability, experience and infrastructure to deliver and support a proven and robust Compute storage solution.

We have an existing VMware farm with a number of clusters using storage from a number of storage arrays connected over Fibre Channel. We would like to convert this to a Hyper Converged Infrastructure with local storage on the hosts, shared over an Ethernet backbone and with a SDS Management layer. We would prefer to upgrade our existing hardware but if this will not provide the solution required then we are open to replacing it.

A separate RFP activity will be run in parallel to this one for UC’s ‘File / NAS’ 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.
