Bulk storage replacement



UK Biobank (‘UKBB’) is issuing this tender to invite Bids for a replacement to its existing Petabyte level storage system. The system hosts a data repository and consists of three identical DDN EXAScaler appliances, each sited in a different location. Whilst the appliances have performed well, they are approaching end-of-life and need to be replaced. Consequently, UKBB is seeking to procure a new set of storage systems capable of hosting the repository for at least the next 5 years. Lot 1: The proposed solution must consist of identical, standalone systems. The ability of the systems to store a large volume of data is essential. Whilst most files comprising the data are typically a few hundred MB in size, the total number of files mean each system must offer a minimum usable capacity of 1.5 Petabytes. Whilst the performance demands on the systems will not be high, the systems must meet certain criteria in respect of size, connectivity, and operational standards. In particular, each system must be no more than 20U in height and fit into a standard rack with an external width of 60cm and external depth of 120cm deep. The systems should be easy to use and include features that allow for file recovery, event notification, and reporting. The existing appliances are covered by support until 30 November 2023. Consequently, all purchased systems need to be installed, commissioned, and handed over to UKBB in advance of this date. Following installation and commissioning, a 5-year service support contract is required for each of the systems.
