Reserve Bank seeks help as it migrates data centre kit to Cisco
The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has launched a request for tender as it searches for a provider to deliver its Cisco data centre compute equipment and services for the next five years. According to the RBA, it's part of larger upgrade plans to migrate most of its existing physical services and associated networking to Cisco, which the bank uses to operate and support internally managed IT infrastructure, including network, compute, and security across multiple data centres and domains. Under the contract, the provider would be responsible for supplying Cisco hardware for the data centre network by July 2020.
