Contract Control Number: TECHS-202263433

 

Vendor/Contractor Name (including any “DBA”): Zivaro, Inc.

 

Type and Scope of services to be performed:

 

Technology Services is requesting approval of a contract with Zivaro, Inc. for the purchase of On Demand Storage as a Service (STaaS) services. Storage is a critical component of Technology Services' data strategy and plays a major role in keeping City Agencies running. STaaS services will allow fast and efficient access to stored data for Agency business decisions. STaaS services, versus a traditional storage data infrastructure, will reduce complexity, risk and resource management while increasing availability and flexibility.

 

Through this service, Technology Services will reduce the need of capital expenses for purchasing its own physical, on-premise server infrastructure as well as technical debt and will have the flexibility to scale (increase / decrease) storage capacity on an as needed basis. As this is a flexible, pay-as-you-go service, it will allow for a decrease in overall, long-term costs.  

 

The STaaS services supports block, file, and object storage services that the City can deploy on-premises, in a co-location facility, and in the cloud. As the City's data needs grow and evolve, Technology Services will be able to focus more on strategic data management rather than focusing on the details of physical storage management and operations like data migration, performance, reliability, and capacity. This will help alleviate growing Technology Services' staff workloads and allows Technology Services to quickly respond to unpredictable technology needs.

 

On Demand Storage reduces technical debt whereas a state of the art piece of equipment purchased today is no longer state of the art just two years later. It also eliminates the risk of either purchasing too much (over-provisioning) or too little storage (under-provisioning). It also accounts for the unpredictable nature of seasonal workloads and spikes. Through this service, the City will have consistent availability to virtually unlimited storage capacity so the City will never outgrow its storage capacity needs.
