Keysource has been appointed by Staffordshire University to provide consultancy services as the institution embarks on a new technology strategy.
The project, which will see the University migrate the majority of its IT services to the Cloud, will initially involve two sites on the Stoke campus and include on-site disaster recovery.
Keysource has been working with Staffordshire University for the past six years as its critical environment partner, helping the University to develop and deploy its data centre strategy.
For this project Keysource will complete a strategic review of the University’ data centre estate, identifying any risks and providing a gap analysis against best practice, for the IT load the University wants to deploy and the necessary connectivity to the cloud.
Keysource has also been tasked with developing the design options and plans for the upgrade works required, as well as the tender pack and cost plan.
Staffordshire University has also appointed Keysource as CDM Principal Designer, and will be responsible for managing the overall design risk and all associated designers. Other responsibilities include liaising with the customer and the principal contractor on all H&S matters.
