National Support Center Coming Online

    From ZD Net:
The [new Social Security National Support Center] Tier 3 data center was completed outside of Baltimore, MD, in 2014 with the conversion to a virtual tape library the first step in the migration process, completed at the end of October. This was immediately followed by the installation of the complete networking and storage infrastructure, a process which is necessary to prep for the overall migration/consolidation projects in the foreseeable future, and which is scheduled to be complete by March 2015. Once this stage is completed the NSC will begin the process, scheduled to take 18 months, of migrating their Mainframe and Open Systems solutions and all of the existing production environments. ...
With the migration work scheduled to be completed in August 2016, it will be a while before the full advantage of the new facility can be realized.
