A few months ago we bought 4 identical, Azure HCI stack certified servers with 12 NVMe disks of 8 Tb each.
The installer made a failover cluster of them with 4 nodes and Storage Spaces Direct with three-way mirroring. About 20 VMs were put on it and a SQL cluster role was installed, which uses most of the storage (110 Tb).
Last week there was a hardware replacement of one of the nodes. While one was down, another one had a BSOD and the result was that the whole Cluster Storage Volume went down, including all VMs and SQL, and never came back up.
As a result, we migrated all our VMs and SQL databases back to the previous servers.
We are looking for a certified expert to redo the configuration of the failover cluster, storage spaces direct, csv and SQL role and provide support should a software problem occur.
We require at least a Microsoft Certified: Azure Stack Hub Operator Associate, preferably with an MCSE: Core Infrastructure and MCSE: Data Management and Analytics
We require a signed Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA), Confidentiality Agreement and a copy of your passport / identity card
The first milestone is 50% of the project price and is paid as soon as the configuration is ready to go into production.
The second milestone amounts to 20% of the project price and will be paid 1 month after the configuration has gone into production and no software problems have occurred and/or those that have occurred have been solved.
The third milestone is 20% of the project price and is paid 2 months after the configuration has gone into production and no software problems have occurred and/or those that have been solved.
The fourth milestone amounts to 10% of the project price and is paid out 3 months after the configuration has gone into production and no software problems have been encountered and/or those that have been encountered have been resolved.
Support after 3 months
After these 3 months, we would like to purchase ad-hoc services from you at an hourly rate.
We only accept bids that can prove the desired certification. Please also quote an hourly rate for afterwards.
