Data center consolidation is a key strategy in the Federal IT playbook. The Obama administration is betting on consolidation to reduce costs, lower energy consumption, improve IT security, and enable the shift to more efficient computing platforms, such as cloud computing.

In May 2010 at the "1,100 - How Many Federal Data Centers Does It Take..." event in Washington, D.C., MeriTalk teamed with NetApp to survey Federal IT professionals and systems integrators to find out perceptions of the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative guidance, key pain points, and recommendations to meet consolidation goals. How realistic are the expectations? Are the goals attainable? Will Feds get to the finish line?

Download the 2010 Federal Data Center Demolition Derby Report to find Federal agency perspectives on:

  • Will the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative objectives be achieved in the timeline outlined?
  • Will there actually be a reduction in the final number of Federal data centers?
  • Is OMB's current guidance sufficient?
  • Are Feds on board with the administration's cloud vision?
