Navy moves ahead with IT data consolidation
Monday - 1/17/2011, 2:39pm EST
Under a new directive, any spending for servers or data centers that hasn't already been approved, will require a special waiver from the Navy's deputy chief information officer.
Navy has also asked senior commanders to create plans for reducing the number of data centers by 25 percent - and increase server utilization by at least 40 percent.
Navy hopes to have a final enterprise data center consolidation strategy in place by March. They've been getting some experience in that - through a data center consolidation project with the Naval Installation Command.
