MART Backup & Recovery Initiative RFR-5-17-18

The Montachusett Regional Transit Authority (MART) is requesting prposals from qualified contractors/vendors for Technology Improvement Project (TIP) we have worked with our MSP (Managed Service Provider) in conducting a technical site survey to go over our current infrastructure and what our future needs will be for continued growth as the leading Brokerage provider for the Commonwealth. The following equipment should be considered for MART to achieve this project. This is broken down in to four categories. Virtual Machine Infrastructure, SAN (Storage Area Network), Core Network Switching, Backup and Recovery. Our MSP will provide installation and Professional Services.

The scope of this document will reflect on our backup and recovery initiative. Currently we have a 20TB solution using Data Deduplication. However with the growth of our Virtual Environment over the years we are over 90% capacity on our backup solution. I have had to scale down backups on critical machines from every 3hrs to once a day. As we keep adding Virtual Machines to our inventory we are unable to back them up due to capacity issues. The new proposal will give us 60TB’s of storage. Triple the capacity.
