State Records protects, preserves and makes available the archives of the Government of NSW. They also set standards, monitor compliance and provide guidance and training on record-keeping for NSW public sector organisation.
State Records wanted to improve the digital record keeping process and implement a digital archives facility for the government which included a primary site and Disaster Recovery strategy to allow frequent, rapid and high-volume methods of data transfer.
Thomas Duryea Logicalis proposal was chosen on account of its high level of strategic consultancy, custom-built storage, server and virtualisation solution based on Dell EMC and Cisco technologies.
Cassie Findlay, Project Manager, Digital Archives State Records Authority explained, "it was critical for our chosen partner to understand the need for openness combined with future-proofing against the background of legislation and record-keeping – that’s quite a unique combination of requirement. We were confident of Thomas Duryea Logicalis’ ability to deliver all of these elements while remaining cost competitive."
