Federal Data Center Consolidation
The number of Federal data centers has continued to grow at a rapid rate. In addition to the costs of procuring hardware and software, there are significant costs associated with operating each data center, such as real estate and power. The Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative directs agencies to inventory their data centers and look for ways to consolidate and reduce operating costs. IBM is prepared to help you through each step of this process.
IBM has vast experience with data centers that are compliant with the Federal Information Security Act (FISMA) and DoD 5220 regulations. These are run as either government-owned, contractor-operated (GOCO), government-secured, leased (GSL), or secured, IBM-owned facilities. Leveraging those experiences, we can help you reduce your energy consumption by up to 55% and your floor space by 65%. We offer a broad range of products and services for consolidation, virtualization and cloud computing. IBM is a significant provider of cloud and data center capabilities with broad experience in the Federal marketplace. We provide rapid assessment services that can help you to:
