NSA Utah Data Center Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Canceled

NSA Utah Data Center ribbon cutting ceremonyNSA.GOV

The Utah Data Center, code-named Bumblehive, is the first Intelligence Community Comprehensive National Cyber-security Initiative (IC CNCI) data center designed to support the Intelligence Community’s efforts to monitor, strengthen and protect the nation. NSA is the executive agent for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and is the lead agency at the center.  

The steady rise in available computer power and the development of novel computer platforms will enable us to easily turn the huge volume of incoming data into an asset to be exploited, for the good of the nation.

Due to the recent controversy over the role of the Utah Data Center, our Fall dedication ceremony to celebrate the opening of our nation’s first IC CNCI data center has been canceled. We quietly uninvited our loyal partners at the local, state, and federal level who had the vision and fortitude to enable us to build this powerful Intelligence Community data center “for the good of the Nation”.

(Read the sign: “If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.”

Our 1.5 billion-dollar one million square-foot Bluffdale / Camp Williams LEED Silver facility houses a 100,000 sq-ft mission critical Tier III data center. The remaining 900,000 SF is used for technical support and administrative space. Our massive twenty building complex also includes water treatment facilities, chiller plants, electric substation, fire pump house, warehouse, vehicle inspection facility, visitor control center, and sixty diesel-fueled emergency standby generators and fuel facility for a 3-day 100% power backup capability.

  1. With this game called Shutdown would it not be easier to list the agencies not functioning than the ones that are. The list would be shorter and less paper waste.

  2. Is this Satire?
    Did they actually use the phrase “will enable us to turn the huge volume of incoming data into an asset to be exploited.”?????
    Don’t stop at cancelling the ribbon ceremony, cancel the entire data center too.

  3. Maybe they received a REAL terrorist threat from someone if they were to go through with it. lol

    What goes around, comes around.

  4. “We quietly uninvited our loyal partners at the local, state, and federal level who had the vision and fortitude to enable us to build this powerful Intelligence Community data center “for the good of the Nation”.
