How did the government miscount a thousand data centers?

The federal government has found that there are nearly 1,000 more data centers than previous estimates indicated after a rigorous peer-review process resulted in a more complete picture of agency data-center assets, according to the Office of Management and Budget. In the past eight months, agencies have collected and refined their data-center inventories to comply with guidance set forth in the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative (FDCCI). Federal CIO Vivek Kundra started the initiative in February, citing the need to stem the growth of the 1,100 federal data centers that were then thought to exist. FDCCI seeks to reduce energy use, decrease IT costs and improve security.
