Here is another story of Data Center consolidation. The state of New York is consolidating four data centers into one at the SUNY institute of technology. 75,000 square feet, 27 state agencies and 3 years to build.
They call it state of the art to accomodate for future needs. The strange thing to me, considering that many square feet is that it is raised floor!
Guess there is no second guessing the location selection here. :)
