Pataki announces

United States

#23 Oct 11, 2013
Same story, different snake oil salesmen:

New York Governor George E. Pataki today announced that SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNY IT) just outside the City of Utica was selected as the site for a new state data center. The new data center will consolidate four existing centers under one roof to increase operational efficiency, meet growing information technology demands of state agencies and improve security of critical systems and citizen information. The governor was joined by various state officials including Dr. Michael Mittleman, New York State CIO.

This new state data center at SUNY IT will bring new 21st century high tech jobs to the Mohawk Valley and serve all citizens of New York State by ensuring the state has a reliable, secure, state-of-the-art facility," Governor Pataki said.

The New York State Office for Technology currently operates four data centers, serving 27 state agencies. The centers operate 24 hours a day, year round, supplying operational and technical expertise necessary to support computing needs of agencies. The data centers support critical initiatives for public health and welfare agencies, labor, public safety and homeland security, education, and tax and finance.

CIO Mittleman said, "Consolidating data centers is an industry best practice with proven results for enhancing security and reducing operational costs in both the public and private sectors. This new data center will continue the vision set out by Governor Pataki who has long promoted the use of information technology to enhance services for citizens through e-government. In a new consolidated data center we can better leverage our state's technology investments and provide higher quality computer services to state agencies, local governments and citizens in a more cost effective manner."

The State's data centers provide necessary information and services to administer essential citizen programs. Examples include initiatives such as the Child Abuse Registry, Child Health Plus, Counter-Terrorism Alert System, Driver's License Renewal and Vehicle Registration, Tuition Assistance Program, Welfare Management System, Teacher Certification, Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) and Worker Protection Systems.

On September 26, the State University of New York transferred 21 acres of real property located at the Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome to the New York State Office of General Services (OGS). OGS is currently performing site evaluations including geotechnical and environmental reviews as required by the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) to evaluate potential environmental impacts. Once completed, OGS will begin design schematics. Construction of the data center is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2007 and anticipated to be complete in March of 2010.

The new data center will have approximately 75,000 square feet of raised floor space and will be scalable to meet future computing demands. The new facility will be designed to provide redundant power feeds with back-up generators ensuring operation of the facility in the event of a power failure. The state will migrate as many of the existing computer systems as is feasible and will purchase new equipment only as necessary to make upgrades within the normal technology refresh cycle or to meet new demand.

All another charade which won't be discovered until after re elections. You people are so angry and duped it's hilarious you keep falling for the same dubious claims. None of these companies state anywhere on their sites where THEY are hiring ANYONE or spending a dime except for
Advanced Nano and all they did was say "officials said 1000 new jobs".
Gotta love all the exclamation points the starstruck imbeciles at the OD put on all their headlines as if it makes up for their lack of followup research and understanding LMAO!
This center (Quad-C) is not for manufacturing. It is for R&D (research and development). Manufacturing plant to follow after Quad-C is complete and up and running. Different tenant for manufacturing facility...

Lets see in the Albany area first came a R&D clean room facility tied to the college jointly funded by the state along with SEMATECH, IBM, Tokyo Electron and others. What followed was a huge chip fab by Global Foundries that transformed the economy in the Capital District.

What we have coming to our area is a R&D clean room facility tied to the college jointly funded by the state along with SEMATECH, IBM, Tokyo Electron and others.....sound familiar? The next step that occurred in the Albany area most certainly can be repeated here. Nanotechnology companies want to locate close to these state of the art R&D facilities to leverage the work that is being done there.

Im sure history will repeat itself. Will it be the history of building a chip plant as in the capitol district, or will it be the history of pols making outrageous promises just weeks prior to elections?

People need to stop being petty and jealous over the fact there is a huge financial investment coming to the area. THey are jealous that their hometown doesnt have an announcement like that in their news so therefore they are petty about it and try to drag us down from the local excitement. THis time excitement and optimism will override all that.

Er..you do realize that the official groundbreaking for Quad-C was three years ago and that it was supposed to completed last year, right?

It boggles the mind why people can't see why skepticism is a natural reaction to these multi-billion dollar promises.

Of course, we'll have evidence if it's real soon enough. As a designated physician shortage area I'm sure Oneida County will be petitioning the state Legislature for additional funds to help provide medical services for those 1500 new workers and their families.

And I have no doubt we'll see a flurry of high-end housing developments seeking permitting and approval so construction can start in the spring. Gotta have homes for those folks, after all.

And we'll also see Oneida County seeking yet another waiver from the DEC consent order for the Sauquoit Creek treatment station. After all, taking on the 2 million gallons a day of outflow from Quad-C will significantly bump up it's monitored discharge rates.

If all that starts to happen then, well, hallelujah!

If it doesn't, it's just another scam.

And did you know that contracts have been let (e.g., Fort Schuyler Management Corporation (FSMC))and construction work to build the facility is in process. I know there are many skeptics out though as things progress they will be singing a different tune...

I'm well aware it's under construction. It's just, you know, a few years late. It was supposed to be a functioning facility employing hundreds by now.

Who wouldn't want to see all these flowery promises actually come to fruition? The problem is that we've had these grandiose visions foisted on us again, and again, and again.

Surely you can remember the press conference for the Photonics Center? That boondoggle slurped up tens of millions of dollars, and continues to do so in the form of the New York Photonics Development Corporation. Despite never actually doing anything in over two decades it's still around. It's sole purpose now is to provide a sinecure to a few apparatchiks who just want to make it to retirement before someone notices they still have a budget line.

Will this time be different? We can certainly hope so, but history shows it's likely to have as much substance as a spun-sugar folly.

The only petty jealous people I see are the cny ilk. Wanna come see what's REALLY being built in my county? Again here we go with people who are so petty they can't be happy or whole unless they tell themselves everyone is so "jealous" of their Appalachian septic hole. Your taxes, idiotic population and corruption isn't exactly "enviable" so get a life if you ever want to be happy.

Which brings us to the fraud: CNSE isnít a university. Itís a college with a very specific focus totally funded by the taxpayer, NOT private investment. Nobody stated WHO was investing. Didn't that clue you sheep in? They canít offer enough courses for even a BA. In the short run they want all the money and "fame". In the long run it all comes to an end, no matter how much starry-eyed "optimism" and "excitement" and pretending everyone is "SUPER JEALOUS" of you losers you feign.
