Wyoming Closing Data Centers, Shifting To The Cloud

The State of Wyoming is closing its data centers and moving all of its data to the cloud, according to a report, in one of the biggest shifts by a state to offload its computing resources. According to the report, from Infoworld, Wyoming has begun shifting all of its data to the cloud--to things like Google Apps--as well as commercial colocation centers, in what will mean the discontinuation of most of the state's data center operations.
