Data Center Exit Project

What are we doing:

DTS is currently working on a Salt Lake Data Center Exit (DCE) project. We need to move from the current location at the Capitol complex as the facility is slated to be demolished within the next two years. The data center houses the servers that host state agency IT applications and systems.

Migration progress


Why are we doing it:

As part of the move from the State Office Building (SOB) to the Taylorsville State Office Building (TSOB), applications and systems need to be relocated as well. The DCE strategy will address the following as part of the relocation process:

  • How and when hardware and software will be refreshed as it reaches end of life or renewal dates.
  • Determine whether applications and systems will be relocated to the cloud, TSOB, or some other location.
  • How the network needs to change to accommodate relocation targets.
  • Funding for the plan.


The estimated timeline is: 8/1/2021 – 4/15/2022


The transition from the current data center to another location will be seamless for state agencies. DTS will work to migrate the systems and applications without any downtime for state agencies.

DTS is here to help! We will be working with all teams to ensure a smooth transition to the cloud or other options.

If you have questions, contact your IT Director or the Project Manager Greg Jackson.
