EDS to host data center for FDA
EDS will condense FDA applications from five agency data centers into one EDS-managed data center for production operations, as part of the FDA’s new $2.5 billion award program to update its IT and data center management services over the next 10 years.

EDS is one of 10 companies eligible to compete for task orders under the new program. The Herndon, Va.-based company received $12 million for the design phase of the plan to move FDA software applications and hosting operations to a data center located in the Washington, D.C. metro area, according to the Washington Business Journal (WBJ).

Under the five-year contract, EDS will move more than 300 terabytes of storage and 100 network and security devices and 525 servers.
