The White House today said it would shut down 800 federal data centers by 2015, including one in Research Triangle Park next year.
The move is part of a White House campaign to cut government waste but shuttering what the President's staff has identified as "duplicative" data centers.
Data centers are used for storing and managing government data, including hardware and other equipment such as air conditioners and security devices.
The RTP data center is located at the Environmental Protection Agency complex. It was not immediately clear how many people work at the center.
