2 A. The following are questions received and FCS s responses for the above-referenced solicitation: 1. What is current version of VMware being utilized by FCS? FCS is currently using versions 5.1, 5.5, and Does FCS plan to move the current versions of VMware at the implementation of the proposed solution? What version(s)? We will deploy VMware This section describes the data center core elements of 41 virtual servers, 15 physical Windows servers, and 4 SAN storage systems. The virtual server and SAN storage requirements are defined in the Equipment Specifications section 4.1 but where are the physical Windows server requirements defined? They do not need to be defined here. 4. Server Specification #2 requires a minimum of 80GB iscsi connectivity. Should this be 80 GB iscsi connectivity? We need a minimum of 8 x 10G FIBER Ethernet connections. 5. Can you expand on the meaning FCS has for Managed Services? Does FCS desire monitoring and management services for the new infrastructure? FCS desires proposals that would allow FCS to choose various types of managed services ranging from help desk, to deployments, to on-site support, at the discretion of FCS. 6. Will FCS be installing the VMware environment? Or do you want the Offeror to install? FCS wants the option to do both. 7. Will the Offeror be migrating applications? If yes, how many and provide descriptions? Are the applications being migrated certified with the VMware version that FCS will be implementing? This is beyond the scope of this proposal. Applications will be migrated when they are supported. 8. What is the current FCS backup solution in use today? Barracuda and CommVault. 9. Is FCS seeking options only or a recommendation for a backup solution? FCS is seeking options and recommendations for a potential future backup solution. 10. What is FCS seeking with regard to Cloud storage? For backups? Or to supplement the SAN? FCS is seeking hosted and hybrid cloud solutions for off-site backups, supplemental storage, X As A Service, etc. 11. How many teachers and staff could potentially contact the Help desk? This section is describing the vendor s help desk for supporting the server hardware. FCS techs will be contacting this support. 12. Is the Help Desk s only purpose for the proposed hardware infrastructure? See above answer. 13. Would the Help Desk calls include any other support needs? If yes, please describe. See above answer.

3 14. What are the maximum storage IOPS required per virtual machine? There is no specific requirement. 15. Is this going to be a virtualized environment? Yes. 16. If so what is the virtualization platform? VMware. 17. Want to confirm if you re looking for 10 ports of 10G Ethernet for each server. Yes of the 400GB Solid State SAS with 2 Fusion I/O SX300 SSD Storage cards, is this multiple options or required for each server? Required for each server. 19. Is FCSD considering a blade center rather than 2U Rack servers? FCS does not desire a blade solution. 20. Will the SAN be part of this environment? Could the requirements listed above moved to the SAN instead of the server? SAN will be part of this environment and no, requirements listed above cannot be moved to the SAN instead of the server. 21. Are 3 tiers of storage in the SAN a requirement, or are there specific workloads that need to be met? 3 tiers of storage in the SAN is a requirement. 22. Is the hardware requested in the proposal slated to replace the current hardware that is supporting the 41 VM hosts and 15 Physical Windows servers? 23. Will both physical and virtual workloads need to be migrated to the new hardware? Yes, both will be placed on the new hardware. 24. Is there any other operating system other than Microsoft Windows installed on a physical server that will need to be supported on the proposed configuration? Not at this time but perhaps Linux in the future for physical servers. 25. What is FCS current licensing level and version with VMware? FCS current licensing levels are 5.1, 5.5, and 6.0 Enterprise Plus. 26. Does FCS currently utilize VMware SRM? FCS will implement this within the next 12 months. 27. What switches does FCS use for 10GbE fabric? Brocade VDX. 28. Will FCS require SFP+ for all 10GbE connections? Yes, we also use Twinax whenever possible. 29. With regard for the FCS requirement, for Two (2) Fusion I/O SX300 SSD storage cards or equivalent for use with VMware 6.0 VSAN technology, what is the total capacity with both cards? Each card should have a minimum of 1.8TB of capacity.

4 30. Does FCS have a total IOPS and usable capacity at what raid level for the SSD tier? FCS is requesting virtualized storage and this type of storage has no RAID level requirements. 31. Does FCS have a total IOPS and usable capacity at what raid level for the PCIE accelerator tier? 32. What are the applications for the ten 10GbE ports, (i.e., dual connect for production, management, vmotion, storage)? FCS uses all of the above and many are used for hot and cold standby. 33. What is the average expected VMware count per server? No average is available. 34. What is the expected time to arrive onsite for the 5 year critical care requirement 2 hours, 4 hours, 8 hours, next business day? 4 hours is the minimum, every day. 35. Was Server Specification #2 going to be renamed storage configuration #1 or something similar? This was mentioned at the bidder s conference. 36. As discussed at the bidder s conference, can FCS confirm the capacity of the storage configuration that was listed under Server Specification #2 for the 9.64TB of Tier II requirement? The question asked was this supposed to be 96.4TB of Tier II capacity? This was addressed in the addendum. 37. There were a couple of possible typos in the bid that were to be addressed quickly, and I have not seen an addendum posted since the pre-bid conference. We are working on the SAN configuration and there was a possible typo with those requirements. Can you please address? This was addressed in the addendum. 38. Is FCS interested in a Managed Cloud Deployment in lieu of a Physical Hardware/software upgrade of FCS existing Data Center(s)? FCS desires both. 39. Is FCS allowing vendors to bid on certain items of the RFP vs all of the items in the RFP (Bid on Section 4.2, page 29 without bidding on Section 4.1, page 28)? FCS desires a single vendor for the entire RFP but reserves the right to award to multiple vendors if a single vendor cannot provide all components of the RFP with the best value to FCS. 40. Is the 9.64TB of Tier II storage correct or is that a typo that should read 96.4TB? Can you please restate the tiering requirements for Server Spec 2? This was addressed with the Addendum. 41. Item 3 (RFP page 26) indicates the Scope of Service to include establishing a co-located DR site. We assume this means this will be a non-fcs facility that is not presently available to FCS, established for Disaster Recovery purposes. Is this correct? Correct.

5 42. Has a co-location provider been selected? If not, is the evaluation and selection of the colocation provider part of the scope of service? A co-location provider has not been selected. The evaluation and selection of the colocation provider can be part of the scope of service if the vendor has something to offer. 43. Are all application/database/system workloads now migrated from the old data center (Westlake High School) to the primary Data Center (Powers Ferry), such that only DR instances of these applications exist at the old data center? Or do some application/database/system workloads need to be migrated from old data center to the new data center.and then DR instances of these applications moved from old data center to the new co-location DR site? FCS is in the process of migrating from the old data center to the new location and will seek a future co-location hosted DR solution. 44. Can FCS OIT elaborate on what application/database/system workloads will need to be migrated (old data center to new data center, old data center to new co-located DR site)? There are numerous applications referenced on RFP page 29 (top of page). i. Old data center to new data center includes applications/database/system workloads to be migrated? ii. Old data center to new co-located DR site includes applications/database/system workloads to be migrated? FCS is asking for example pricing of professional services. There are no specific projects underway that this proposal will address. 45. Item 3 (RFP page 26) indicates the Scope of Service includes expanding the VMware environment. Can the FCS OIT team elaborate on the scope of expanding the VMware environment, in context of existing physical and virtual servers and the VMware products recently purchased in the VMware Enterprise License Agreement? What VMware products are presently in use today? What versions? FCS currently use VMware 5.1, 5.5, 6.0, vrealize, SRM, NSX, and VSAN. 46. What VMware products are presently owned but not implemented? (e.g. VMware vsan, VMware NSX, VMware vrealize Suite, VMware Site Recovery Manager, etc.) NSX and SRM have not been deployed as of the release of this addendum. 47. How does the FCS OIT team envision expanding the VMware environment with these tools and others? FCS has no specific answer to this question. 48. Would the consulting services for these VMware scope expansion activities be paid for by the PSO credits under the recently awarded VMware ELA? Or outside of that RFP/procurement vehicle? Outside of the PSO credits, FCS is asking for example professional service offerings for future projects. There are no specific projects being addressed by this proposal.

6 49. Item 3 (RFP page 26) indicates the Scope of Service to include cloud storage deployment. We assume this means acquisition of cloud storage solution(s) and deployment/migration of selected data to the cloud storage solution(s), correct? Yes, FCS is currently purchasing and plans to continue purchasing cloud storage solutions. 50. What cloud storage solution(s) does FCS already own (e.g. Barracuda backup, Microsoft Azure)? Azure and VMware vcloud. 51. What applications or databases are targeted for deployment/migration of selected data to the cloud storage solution(s)? FCS has not specified workloads to be deployed in the cloud yet. 52. Is FCS OIT asking for inclusion of new cloud storage deployment solutions (software, hardware, services) in this RFP? If so, where..and where should these be described and priced? FCS is asking for professional services and things like cloud storage to be proposed as value added ancillary services. Provide examples of what you have to offer along with a basic pricing model. 53. Item 3 (RFP page 26) indicates the Scope of Service to include expanding all network functionality to new hardware technologies. Can FCS OIT elaborate on this scope? Does this mean that the FCS network will simply add the additional server and storage nodes to the existing core network? Or is there a fundamental core network re-design anticipated including consulting services (e.g. to cover the new co-location DR, the existing data center, schools, etc.?) FCS has no current re-design in mind. FCS desires a dynamic solution that can adapt to future technologies to include vendors who provide industry leading solutions. 54. Item 4.2 (RFP page 29) indicates professional services for Hardware and Environment Monitoring Capabilities. Is this capability anchored around specific software tools presently owned by FCS (e.g. Microsoft System Center, SolarWinds, other tools)? If so, which one(s)? Or is it tied to software that is not yet owned by FCS but would potentially be acquired under this RFP? Is FCS OIT asking for inclusion of new hardware and environment monitoring capabilities / solutions (software, hardware, services) in this RFP? If so, where..and where should these be described and priced?

The vendor can propose additional options, roles, and pricing. 56. Item 4.2 (RFP page 29) indicates professional services for Managed Services and On-site Support. Can FCS OIT elaborate on Managed Services in this context? Is this primarily Staff Augmentation services that supplement the existing OIT team to provide specific skillsets and perform specific activities as directed by FCS OIT? Or is Managed Services providing a turnkey/outsourced solution for a specific scope of activities? Can FCS OIT elaborate on On-Site Support in this context? We assume this means a resource matching a specific skillset who is resident on-site, and providing support for a specific technology area? Does the pricing table on RFP page 63 include the 9 different types of Managed Services and On-site Support sought by FCS? If the pricing table on RFP page 63 does not include pricing for Managed Services and On-site Support where should these offerings and prices be described? response at the discretion of the vendor and their capabilities. The vendor can propose additional options, roles, and pricing. 57. Item 4.2 (RFP page 29) indicates professional services for Application and System Deployment offerings. Can FCS OIT elaborate on the meaning of Application and System Deployment by providing examples of specific applications and systems to be deployed? Are these new system deployments?
