1 min read

DataCenterThe Defense Information Systems Agency has shuttered a defense enterprise computing center in Huntsville, Alabama, and expects the closure to save the Pentagon $3.2 million a year, Defense Systems reported Thursday.

DISA says it has reduced the number of agency-run DECCs from 18 to 10 facilities since 2008, with an estimated annual savings of $17 million.

Employees at the Huntsville data center have either opted to retire or moved to another civil service position, according to Defense Systems.

The publication reports that the Pentagon has been working to consolidate information technology infrastructures across the department and to implement a cloud-based data sharing framework.

DISA was designated as provider of core data centers to the Pentagon last year.

The article noted that the agency is building a computing platform to help defense personnel access and secure data.
