Summary:
Discusses context and background of the Federal data center consolidation initiative, intended to reverse growth in potentially redundant information technology infrastructure throughout Federal agencies, and to mitigate impact such redundancy has on Federal energy consumption. Provides overview of data center characteristics, focusing on technology used, power consumption issues, and how data centers are classified. Summarizes how and why Federal Government increased its investment in data centers and then later determined that consolidation was a better path forward based on the state of computing and communications technology. Describes historical legislation underlying current initiative, and discusses possible issues for Congressional oversight or consideration.
