Tasmanian Police Dept. ditching legacy Sun

Moving to new Oracle gear

The Tasmanian Department of Police and Emergency Management will shortly upgrade its legacy Solaris Software and SUN Infrastructure in a bid to modernise its back-end IT systems.

The Department uses Sun Microsystems SPARC hardware, running the Solaris 8 operating system and using the UniVerse RDMS with MQ Series to host its core data and critical production applications.

The upgrade will see four Sun SPARC Servers changed out for Oracle SUN hardware, while the Solaris 8 software will be upgraded to Solaris 10.

The existing Sun StorageTek 6140 SAN infrastructure will also be upgraded to a new SAN platform. The current data volume sizes for the existing deployment are around 200GB per full backup.

The existing departmental applications have been in use for 20 years and contain a whopping 35,000 lines of C source code and over 650,000 lines of UniVerse Basic.
