Federal and State Government Data Centers: Balancing Modernization and Servicing Imperatives
October 09, 2020
For federal and state government agency technology teams, data center management challenges are multiplying, forcing near-term decisions about whether to modernize or service infrastructures. Federal agencies have long struggled to meet the mandates of the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) of 2016, which was built on the previous Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI) of 2010. In addition to closing legacy data centers, federal agencies must demonstrate progress against updated data center optimization targets for virtualization, advanced energy metering, server utilization and availability.
The purpose of this white paper is to help federal and state agency decision makers, including data center operations, IT, facilities and desktop technology managers, and communications room operators, consider whether to service new and existing equipment. Proactive servicing can help agencies meet modernization imperatives, achieve efficiency objectives and extend the lifespan of their infrastructures.
