Feds To Consolidate 22 Medicare Data Centers

The government is consolidating 22 Medicare data centers into just four facilities.

The government's Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is planning to consolidate 22 data center sites into four enterprise facilities, and is seeking proposals for the project, according to GCN, which covers the government computing sector. The consolidation of large and far-flung networks is a major trend, enabled by advances in equipment miniaturization (especially blade servers) and data center design. Expect to see more of these kind of stories in months to come.
