Otago buys IBM servers, SANs

Deal worth over $1 million, sources suggest

Otago University has placed a large order with IBM for servers and SANs, which will be delivered over the next few months.

The university is refreshing some of its corporate hardware, says IS director Martin Anderson.

“We’re replacing 46 servers and installing two SANs of 15 terabytes,” he says. “We’ve also bought Tivoli.”

The Intel-based servers replace Hewlett-Packard kit, partly on price, though Anderson says he expects to continue the relationship with HP.

He wouldn’t say how much the order is worth, only that it was “significant”. Sources suggest it is worth well over $1 million..
