Specifications include, but are not limited to:he purpose of this document is to facilitate the selection of a professional services firm to assist Oakland University in the design, architecture and configuration of a new virtual environment based on VMware VSAN 6.2.The new VSAN cluster will be installed in two independent data centers across campus (L2 connectivity available, multiple 10GbE links) and utilize the Virtual SAN Stretched Cluster feature in Active-Active mode. To utilize the most recent technologies included in Virtual SAN 6.2 (deduplication, compression, and RAID5/6 erasure coding) each data center needs to host a minimum of four all-flash hosts (eight in total). Our preferred vendor is Dell, but we are willing to consider competitive hardware platforms.Oakland University will provide the necessary licenses for VMware vSphere and VMware VSAN software.The VSAN cluster needs to be able accommodate about 300 average size VMs (1vCPU, 4GB RAM, 40GB HD), the usable storage capacity should be no less than 40TB.The above configuration will provide redundancy, resiliency, increased rapid response capability, and protection in the event of on-site disaster and increase the level of high availability demanded by the universitys ever-increasing compute needs.
