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.

University Avenue resurfacing begins Aug. 22

Date: 
August 22, 2021 (All day) to September 10, 2021 (All day)

URBANA – The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that resurfacing of University Avenue (U.S. 150) between Wright Street and Cunningham Avenue in Urbana begins Aug. 22.

The project will require nighttime lane closures, which will occur from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays for approximately three weeks. Once the resurfacing is complete, daytime lane closures will be necessary for approximately two weeks to adjust manholes. After the adjustments, nighttime lane closures will resume for pavement striping for approximately two weeks.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
