Peth-based IT services provider Cirrus has won a $7-million storage contract with the University of Western Australia.
Spanning five years, the contract will focus on the design, implementation and support of a research data storage solution for UWA, a long-term customer of the managed services provider.
The bid for the project saw Cirrus partner with Pure Storage and will encompass an STaaS model leveraging technology from the storage technology vendor.
According to a notice on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), Cirrus will implement a “best practice solution” to help UWA manage research data and remain with governance and regulatory compliance.
The publicly listed managed services provider said the solution would be “high volume, high performance and [have] high availability requirements across the platform”.
