RFP for Hosting ARIN Disaster Recovery Site

Posted: Mon, 03 Nov 2008

The American Registry for Internet Numbers, ARIN, is seeking Internet colocation providers (hosts) in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area to bid on hosting ARIN equipment used to provide disaster recovery and redundancy for several of ARIN's core services. These services include backend web, database and email applications, as well as critical data required for ARIN to maintain business continuity.

All contractual terms and conditions related to the work performed, Non-disclosure of information, or liability issues must be detailed. ARIN will require that the vendor performing this service sign a Non-disclosure agreement due to the proprietary nature of the information ARIN retains for its subscribers.

Proposals must be submitted before 15 December 2008 for consideration, and must include a statement of work, full pricing details, and references.

We anticipate vendor selection by 31 December with deployment no later than 60 days after the contract is awarded.
