Technology Refresh

An enterprise-wide upgrade to Windows 7 took place in 2014 (taking advantage of our Microsoft Enterprise Agreement) in order to support our move to Office 365. Now we are planning the next upgrade to Windows 10.

In addition to desktop systems upgrades, we plan to replace approximately one-third of the fleet of desktop computers in 2015 and again in 2016 in order to keep the City’s computing environment modern and up to date. Infrastructure equipment such as servers, storage arrays, backup devices, network switches, hubs, etc. will also be updated and refreshed at the rate of approximately one-quarter of the total inventory this year and for 2016. Storage continues to grow in the City and current total capacity is in the region of 60Tb and next year is expected to grow to some 100Tb.
