All Department and Agency Data centers under One Federal Cloud

Move all data centers under Federal clouds (private like clouds for all Federal agencies, managed by one agency – physically spread out through out USA), we can make federal agencies (at least the civilian ones) use it on a pay and use basis. So, I am suggesting eliminating numerous agency specific data centers in the favor of one Federal cloud.

 

Some of the features will help in reduction cost are:

 

Eliminating redundancy

Pay only if used

Standardization will eliminate extra cost and increase efficiency

Huge power of negotiation

Technology upgrades will become less expensive

 

This will also increase performance, efficiency, reliability and security by placing the data centers in geographically spread out locations.
