Description: DWP’s critical applications are hosted by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) under the Standard Services Business Allocation (SSBA) Hosting Services contract. The Hosting Services Refresh Programme has been established to: deliver resilient data centre facilities; deliver a modern flexible cloud hosting environment; undertake the on-going refresh of DWP’s ageing infrastructure assets; transition from the current SSBA Hosting Services contract to flexible delivery arrangements, which will be used for the on-going business as usual technology refresh. In exiting the SSBA Hosting Services contract, the Department will take over responsibility for the operation of the technology infrastructure and services through providers. The refresh and migration of Hosting Services will deliver both the DWP Data Centre facilities via government’s Crown Hosting Service (CHS), and the platform services to enable the transition of the Department’s critical ageing application infrastructure to new fully supported modern infrastructure and services.
