CLOSED - Request for Proposals: Server Virtualization Consulting and Implementation (Solicitation #2122-08)

The City has “bare metal” Microsoft Windows servers (“bare metal” server = a physical server that is dedicated to a single tenant.) The City wants to virtualize these servers, create a process for snapshot backups, and implement (and test) a strategy for disaster recovery. The City wants to make this change strategically, with a minimal amount of additional hardware & software purchases. The City is not seeking a Managed Services Provider or a long-term commitment. This project is seen as a one-time surge of effort to quickly move to a virtualized server infrastructure.

The Server Virtualization project will consist of two phases.
