Social Security Taps EMC for $210 Million Sole Source Storage Award
June 10, 2013
The Social Security Administration plans to beef up its mainframe disk storage capacity with hardware from EMC Corp. under a $210 million sole source contract.
SSA, in a formal justification of its award to EMC, said it started replicating its data using proprietary EMC software in 2009. As a result, SSA said, “we must continue to use EMC’s replication software…without requiring a migration of data to new hardware.”
