City Council to discuss possible improvement for Data Center [The Duncan Banner, Okla.]
(Duncan Banner (OK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dec. 08--DUNCAN -- To improve the City of Duncan's Data Center, the Duncan City Council may approve purchasing a server virtualization solution.
This purchase, if approved, would improve the performance and capacity of the Data Center. The server virtualization solution would cost $76,003.17 and would be purchased from CDW Logistics.
According to a memo from City Manager Jim Frieda, "Server virtualization abstracts the physical hardware of a server from its software, allowing a server administrator to create multiple virtual environments per physical server.
"This creates many benefits including savings in energy, purchase price and data center footprint. It allows more efficient use of available processing power and quicker provisions of processing power to new task, and it improves disaster recovery capabilities."
The Duncan City Council meets at 5:15 p.m. Sunday in the Duncan Council Chambers.
n Council members may approve the purchase of a root cutter from USA Blue Book for the Pollution Control Department.
The Fiscal Year 2013 Budget had $10,000 set aside for this purchase. Four companies were contacted for bids and two submitted bids. Bids were received from USA Blue Book for $4,117.60 and from J&R Equipment for $4,836.
According to a memo from Frieda, "This line item is used to purchase various pieces of equipment used regularly by the CMOM crew for inspecting, cleaning, maintaining and repairing the sanitary sewer system. A root cutter is used as an attachment to the jet truck to clean roots, grease and other debris out of sanitary sewer mains that cannon be addressed by jetting alone."
n The council may approve canceling its Dec. 24 regular meeting because of its closeness to Christmas. The last meeting in December is usually canceled each year.
