Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) organization issued a request for quotation (RFQ) to identify one or more providers to facilitate the sourcing and pre-configuration of predetermined storage area network equipment for our data centers.
The storage area network equipment currently in use by ICANN is approaching end of life and needs to be replaced. The equipment is intended to replace and improve performance of the storage provided by the ICANN IT Infrastructure department. There should be no changes in architecture to what is being used currently.
For a complete overview of this RFQ, including the timeline, please click here.
Indications of interest should be emailed to Storage-Network-RFQ@icann.org and provide the following information:
- Company name
- Contact person name
- Contact person e-mail address
Quotations should be electronically submitted using ICANN's sourcing tool by 2 PM PST / 10 PM UTC on 9 February 2023 at the latest. Access to this tool may be requested via the same email.
