3 PLAN GOALS FOR SYSTEMS, APPLICATIONS, NETWORK, AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS: Save costs in infrastructure operations and maintenance. Maintain and improve the quality of service for internal and external users. Provide the necessary infrastructure resources and capacity for existing services and applications, and provision for planned enhancements and projected growth. Improve resiliency and high-availability of services during disasters and emergency events. Guarantee compliance with industry, federal, state, county, and city standards, best practices, rules, and regulations. Provide adequate technology solutions to new requirements and challenges from internal and external users. Leverage existent and new technology to increase efficiency for the entire City. Improve operations, maintenance, research, and development through standardization, automation, and optimization of processes and INITIAL OBJECTIVES AND PROJECTS MANAGED FOR THE PROPOSED INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS: NETWORK The City s network throughput, speed, and capacity will continue supporting the increasing demands from virtualization, centralized storage, disaster recovery, enterprise applications, and all internal and external users. All City network equipment will be in optimal performance conditions, and will be covered by up-to-date maintenance support and warranty. The City will continue to have diverse ISP providers with enough Internet bandwidth capacity for internal and external users and applications, and high-availability functionalities, to automatically route services to alternate providers when one of the connections is compromised. All computer devices plugged in to the City s network will be automatically scanned and assessed for compliance with network security policies. Compliance needs to be automatically enforced, to prevent unauthorized access and security threats. All network devices need to be adequately protected against intrusion, hacking, malware, and other security threats with up-to-date enterprise security systems. All city buildings, remote locations, and live extranet sites will continue to be connected to the City s fiber or/and Metro-E network with adequate bandwidth, security, and network electronics. City staff and services on those locations need to have high-speed access to city enterprise network resources, applications, and policies. All city network connections will have high-availability and survivability via alternate routes, to be able to promptly guarantee connectivity and business continuity in case of link outages. All critical network systems (electronics, connections, servers, applications) will be monitored 24/7 by an automated centralized Network Management System. All alarms and performance problems will be immediately and automatically reported to IT staff, to avoid impact on production systems, and prevent downtime. Status of the

4 entire IT enterprise network can be remotely monitored by Network Operation Center (NOC) and management staff. The city will continue reducing maintenance and operating costs on network All client and server operating systems, malware protection systems, and enterprise filters and security appliances are automatically kept up-to-date with latest security updates, patches, hotfixes, definitions, and other frequent update releases.

SERVERS, STORAGE, VIRTUALIZATION, AND DATABASES All enterprise servers will continue having adequate hardware and software capacity, including memory, CPU, speed, storage, and OS, to support applications, network and users demands. All servers will continue having adequate security protection and OS definitions. All servers have be centrally managed, and automatically supervised 24/7.

6 All servers have to be under adequate maintenance support. All servers that can be virtualized as per best-practice criteria will be virtual machines running in a centralized virtual environment. All virtual machines will have highavailability and survivability, and will automatically move to another physical host machine in case of a hardware failure. All critical virtual machines will be able to automatically recover in a colocation datacenter in case of a major disaster affecting the main datacenter at PSB. All enterprise databases and virtual machines have to be stored in a centralized highspeed robust and reliable SAN system that will have data replication capabilities with the colocation site. All user and departmental files have to be stored at a centralized NAS system, with high-availability and daily on-site and off-site backups. The City Network has to continue having reliable and robust centralized storage systems with enough capacity to accommodate current requirements from systems, applications, and users, and to provision projected growth and disaster recovery replication and backup. All server databases, virtual machines, and application files have to reside in the centralized storage systems, for best-practice and high-availability purposes.
