Coun­cil leads way in IT cost ef­fi­ciency

The Oban Times - - News -

AR­GYLL and Bute Coun­cil has been recog­nised for its value-for-money ap­proach to stor­ing elec­tronic data.

As part of a Dig­i­tal Scot­land project to re­duce IT costs across the Scot­tish pub­lic sec­tor, a tool was launched to work out the to­tal cost of data cen­tres and com­pare this to the cost of op­er­at­ing in the ‘Cloud’ or mov­ing to a large com­mer­cial data cen­tre.

At a national sem­i­nar for best prac­tice, Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil’s two data cen­tres, in Kil­mory and He­lens­burgh, were show­cased as top class.
