This project would provide computer hardware and software infrastructure upgrades at the PSC Secretariat offices to support the implementation of SharePoint. SharePoint is an information and document management solution that will support an array of PSC bodies and the Fund Committees (the “PSC Family”) with virtual workspace, data archives, document libraries, and other functions accessible online.
The immediate objective is a sustainable hardware infrastructure to support the growing needs of the PSC Family for virtual workspace and online collaboration for the next five years. This project would provide two new physical servers configured as a Hyper-V environment (virtual environment). A Hyper-V environment allows you to house multiple virtual servers, which provide different services, on one or more physical servers. This infrastructure would permit the Secretariat to develop virtual SharePoint workspace (“portals”) as a benefit for the PSC Family and Secretariat operations.
