Looks like it'll be open soon..
In surprise to NSA, Utah Data Center may pay tax on
The caption to the drawing of their new facility in the article declares October 2013 as the target for opening of the new NSA Data Center. Add to
that, a massive new expansion at the Fort Meade facilities which I did a thread on here awhile back? I think the NSA is going to have acres and acres
of new server farm space ...but again with what I said above? How much can they really hoover before the noise overwhelms anything useful? Even
keyword searches become worthless if the pool of data is SO large that it's bringing hits back by the hundreds or thousands a day.
I can see value in highly compartmentalized information that would be using terms, names or references the general public would never know to say or
string together...but that wouldn't effect us, by definition. Run a keyword search on Nuclear on any given day for the whole Verizon network and
prepare to take something for the migraine about to arrive very shortly, I'd say. Just give up and go home early if it happens to be a week North
Korea or someone similar is making headlines.
* I saw the post above mine..and this is in a sidebar to the article I link to:
Invitations have been sent to a select group of Utah politicians and dignitaries inviting them to the Utah Data Center ribbon cutting on May 30. The
invitation says the event is unclassified and reporters will be there, but an NSA spokeswoman this week declined to discuss the festivities or say
whether the event means the facility will be starting operations. The NSA has previously said the Utah Data Center would be online this fall.
The article is from the Salt Lake City Tribune and dated May 23rd of this year? Hmm.... No Such Agency can't even be clear about an opening date... Go
