Guess what, an IG decides to count "data centers" using OMB's definition
of a data center. CIO points out those "data centers" won't save money.
The IG report knocked Halvorsen for not adjusting his strategy to account
for a revised definition of data centers from the Office of Management and
Budget. But Halvorsen defended that decision, saying the revised
definition focused on special-purpose processing nodes, which are data
centers that have no direct connection to the DOD Information Network.
"Those nodes aren't where the money [is], and in most cases, there's no
value in consolidating them," Halvorsen said.
