Renewal of the Annual Maintenance Agreement for EMC Enterprise
Storage Area Network Software and Hardware
Approval for Renewal of the Annual Maintenance Agreement for the EMC Enterprise
Storage Area Network Software and Hardware, with EMC Corporation, in the amount of
$205,132 for the period of November 6, 2004 through November 5, 2005. Funds are
available in account 0001 043 0506 3192. The Information Systems and Services
Division concurs with this recommendation.
To provide 24-hour preventative monitoring, problem response, and compatible software
updates for the County's proprietary EMC Storage Area Network (SAN).
The EMC SAN hardware and software host the databases of many of the County's
mission critical application databases to include the Advantage Financial System,
PeopleSoft, 311, E-mail, the Geographic Information System (GIS), the Integrated
Criminal Justice Information System (ICJIS), the new Utilities Billing System, the
Inmate Management/Medical System (IMMS) and all County files on the U and S drives.
The SAN hardware and software were originally purchased in 2001 from a state contract
at a cost of $1,563,876 and included the first three years of maintenance and support.
Since that time, the division has purchased $625,000 of additional capacity for the SAN
from EMC via state contract to meet the County's rapidly growing storage needs. To
date, the approximate total system cost is $2.2million. The annual maintenance is9.4%
of the total system cost and considered very reasonable by industry standards.
