Cutting Back

The White House: “To crack down on this wasteful spending, last week I announced agency plans to close 137 data centers by the end of 2011, of which 39 have already been shut down. For example, HHS is shutting down a data center in Rockville, Maryland that is 14,992 square feet and requires $1.2 million annually for electricity costs alone.”

I wonder if there are systems they could run on Amazon or Rackspace? That could cut costs even more.
