Within the framework of transition works, full or partial migration of information systems of government agencies to Baku and Yevlakh Data centers owned by AzInTelecom LLC, operating under the auspices of the Ministry of Digital Development and Transport, is carried out.

State Housing Construction Agency (SHCA) has acquired IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) cloud infrastructure service provided by AzInTelecom LLC as part of the transition to the "Government Cloud". SHCA ensured high availability of its critical systems by partially hosting its information systems in the Data Center owned by AzInTelecom LLC.

At the initial stage, a report was prepared as a result of the assessment of the general infrastructure of SHCA, and on the basis of this, a consulting service was provided for the migration of IT systems, as well as, a Road Map reflecting the migration process was formed.

The state agency additionally placed its information systems in the Data Center in Yevlakh to prevent downtime and ensure operability in unforeseen situations. AzInTelecom LLC provided SHCA with virtual server services in both Data Centers.
