Reference: Maps: "Feds Release Map of Data Center Closings"
The maps shows 373 centers that the feds hope to close over the next two years.
The targeted data centers range in size from a 195,000-square foot Department of Homeland Security facility in Alabama to four Department of Agriculture data centers, each of less than 1,000 square feet in size.
If the White House reaches its 2012 goal, it will put the government almost half way to its plan to shut down 800 of its 2,000 data centers by 2015. The government expects to save about $3 billion annually.
The U.S. had planned to close 137 data centers by the end of 2011, but updated that to 195 by year’s end.
