The Environmental Protection Agency in Research Triangle Park reassured employees today that it is not shutting down its giant data center here, as had been suggested in this blog and announced by the White House and Office of Management and Budget.
The White House said it's shutting down 800 duplicative data centers by 2015 in a bid to shave $3 billion from the federal budget. The announcement lauded government efforts to root out waste.
Several of the targeted centers were listed as being located at 109 Alexander Drive, the address for EPA's RTP complex. That listing triggered an employee panic at the RTP campus, which is the agency's biggest office outside its Washington headquarters.
