Dublin City Council is seeking proposals to replace its existing SAN infrastructure
at the Civic Offices Wood Quay and at HP, Citywest. This will form the initial
contract of the proposed framework.
It is DCC’s intention to procure any additional SAN related hardware and software
requirements during the course of the proposed framework. Tenderers must
therefore provide indicative pricing for hardware upgrades including disk
procurement for full trays of SSD, SAS, NL-SAS or as required. DCC however, will
be under no obligation to purchase in this regard and reserves the right to conduct
a separate procurement exercise if value cannot be demonstrated. No marks will
be awarded for this during evaluation.
At present DCC deploys 3 storage arrays, 2 in the Civic Offices, Wood Quay and 1
at DCC’s DR site at HP Citywest. One of the component arrays the Civic Offices
and another at Citywest are approaching End of Life in 2015 while the remaining
arrays are EOL in 2016. (See Table2 below) It is proposed to replace these arrays
under this RFT.
Tenderers must quote complete pricing for the supply of products and services at
a fixed price in respect of all products and components being offered. This must
include all hardware, software, implementation, integration, migration, Project
Management, licensing and functional component costs together with any other
costs associated with the delivery of the proposal.
DCC also requires maintenance of the solution to include the provision and
installation of software upgrades and patching.
24*7*365 *4hr enterprise support is an essential requirement.
