OSP IT Services and Solutions Migration

ITCenter successfully transformed the Data Center migration, reducing costs, mitigating business risks, and improving operational efficiency. This extensive migration project involved a dedicated team, collaborative partnerships, and the successful transfer of hundreds of servers and significant amounts of data, ensuring operational excellence in the ever-evolving IT landscape.


Transferring Data Center services and solutions in two critical phases.


January 2023 – September 2023

February to April: Setup Phase

  • Opening a new room and installing all necessary technologies: network, storage, backups, virtualization PoDs, server installation, and ensuring conditions for necessary accommodations.
  • Installation at the Tagus DC of components necessary for the migration process.
  • Infrastructure testing leading to the ready-for-service status of various technologies.
  • Green light for the second project phase (migration) with migration tests concluded by the end of April 2023.

May to September: Migration Phase

  • Migration of physical and virtual servers.
  • Migration of networks/security and transformation of configurations: service, backups, management, point-to-point connections, and VIPs/balancing.
  • Migration of reverse proxy publications (evolution from TMG to A10 technology).
  • Migration of all backup policies.
  • Migration of all associated storage (33 storage racks).

August to September: Decommissioning Phase

  • Decommissioning and/or upgrading obsolete technologies: AIX operating systems; TMC technology (reverse proxy); domain controllers and their respective VMWARE PoDs.
  • Removal of 55 tons associated with racks, servers, backup robots, storage, network, among other components.

Main Goals:

  • Transformation of Infrastructure (Server, Storage, Data Center Network, Load Balancers + Firewalls)
  • Reduction of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • Mitigation of Business Risks (Business Continuity)
  • Enhancement of Operational Efficiency and Go-To-Market (GTM) Capabilities

Project Highlights

Sustainable Impact:

  • Reduction of space equivalent to 20 padel courts.
  • Decrease in annual energy consumption equivalent to powering 335 homes.
  • Removal of 55 tons of weight.

Technological Renewal:

  • Transfer of over 500 servers and migration of 900TB of information.
  • Reduction of 460 physical servers in the Data Center.


  • Execution in a record time of 4 months.
  • Dedication and teamwork are crucial for successful project completion.
