NIWA scopes hybrid model for new enterprise storage systems

The system must also support the S3 object storage as well as general object storage capabilities while built-in capabilities to manage archiving to cold or cloud storage would also be advantageous, with support for native capabilities provided by cloud vendors preferred.

While fully cloud hosted storage would be considered, such a solution would have to offer some form of on premise “invisible” and highly available cache appliance or server to provide redundancy in the event of network outages.

“We are also interested in analytics tool to allow us to assess our current storage to ensure we do not duplicate large volumes of the same data, aid in finding unused data and to aid our migration process,” NIWA wrote.

The deadline for proposals is midday, 7 June. The initial term of the contract, which is expected to commence in July with delivery in August, would be three years with two one year extensions.

Responses would be evaluated based on value for money, a proven track record of product maintenance and support, ability to deliver the goods in a timely fashion and how well the response met requirements.

Last September, NIWA went to market for a new super computer but was also open to public cloud solutions. 

Workloads included four daily production weather forecasts, model testing and the development of future models and potential additional forecast production frequencies. No result of that tender has so far been notified.
