Replacement technology required as many parts of existing infrastructure reach end of life next year

Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust seems set to adopt a private cloud model as part of a £2.5m infrastructure refresh.

The trust is seeking an IT services provider to “replace its current network architecture and infrastructure”. The project is scheduled to begin on 1 November, “as many key components” of the existing computing estate enter end-of-life status next year, the trust said.

“Following an independent assessment of the trust's options, the trust has produced details of the current infrastructure,” it said. “However, the potential establishment of a private cloud appears to be the most viable option, given the limited geographical connectivity, applications compatibility, and financial resources available.”
