“AIIMS New Delhi is a Govt. funded institute. As it is a Medical institute but has strong believed in transformation of technology.

Many OEM are approaching different types of offers replacement of San and NAS storage which is out of life free if they scale up our storage. What we got the offer we have 2 PB NAS storage which will be upgraded to 4PB with the change of 2 PB with latest product.Similarly if the servers are out of life same type of offer has been pushed. But AIIMS is always following the CVC guideline for procurement.
We have followed the direction of Govt. of India. The entire Group A officers supposed to come to office everyday but the Group B and C has to attend physically 50% and rest 50% has to work remotely. If the Group A unable to come to work place due to stick lock down then they have to take permission from the higher authority to work from home. If any major meetings required then we do tele-meeting and take the decision. Team members are working remotely to maintain server, storage, networking, security and applications.
