Operations team is seeking proposals
on the provisioning of a new data-centre facility.
After working through the specifics internally, we now have a public RFP
posted and ready for proposals. We invite any organization meeting the
requirements outlined to submit a proposal for review.
Most of the relevant details are in the document itself, but feel free to
reach out to myself or the list should anyone have any questions.
I'm pretty confused how this RFP relates to the "ulsfo" datacenter. As far
as I know, "ulsfo" is not being proposed, it's already been approved. Is
this RFP intended for an additional new datacenter somewhere in the U.S.?
I looked at <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_servers#Hosting> to
try to gain clarity.
ulsfo is a caching center (varnish + LVS servers, but no backend
infrastructure and very few machines)
