PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Big data analytics and solutions provider Sysorex (NASDAQ: SYRX) today announced a $3.9 million purchase order from the City of Seattle to design and deploy an advanced information systems architecture that will help the city improve its IT infrastructure and streamline the management and safety of its critical data. In connection with the project, Sysorex will provide systems engineering and services to consolidate approximately 1.4 petabytes (1.4 million gigabytes) of the city’s digital information currently spread across 16 facilities into two datacenters. Sysorex will also provide a new data management, backup and recovery solution to assist in simplifying and improving the security of data from every department in the municipality.
“Large municipalities are complex and challenging data management environments,” said Sysorex Western Regional Vice President, Nathan Hughes. “There is an incredible amount of information distributed across dozens of departmental applications and locations – all of which has to be managed, maintained and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We think it speaks to our ability to successfully tackle large-scale data challenges when a city the size of Seattle chooses Sysorex for a project of this magnitude,” he added.
Work on the project will begin immediately.
