Brazilian IT solutions firm Cimcorp has been awarded a US$2mn contract from the public prosecutor in Santa Catarina state, the company's US parent, Midas Medici, said in a statement.
Cimcorp will be in charge of upgrading the prosecutor's IT infrastructure and data center solutions at various sites across Brazil.
The project includes servers, storage and replicating data between sites, as well as network and virtualization software. Additionally, Cimcorp will upgrade the prosecutor's equipment with systems from Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO), Dell (Nasdaq: DELL), VMware (NYSE: VMW) and NetApp (Nasdaq: NTAP).
Service-based offerings for the project will include installation, migration, training in operating the new environment, monitoring through Cimcorp's service desk, and the allocation of Cimcorp VMware certified professionals.
The entire IT infrastructure and data center upgrade will focus primarily on the prosecutor's offices in Florianópolis, Curitiba and São Paulo.
Cimcorp, acquired in August this year by Midas Medici, has operated in Brazil since 1988 and currently has eight regional offices and 2,000 employees in 10 states.
