Thanks for the catch; but allow me to clarify: Houston, Alpharetta (GA -- Atlanta), and Austin will be the 3 cities with redundant "lights out data centers" that will house HP's servers and storage for internal applications. In theory, only security personnel will be on site in these locations. Five of them are new; one will be a modernization of an existing facility in Houston at the former Compaq Campus. The new facilities in Georgia are estimated to cost $240M. HOWEVER, this is only for the internal applications. Hosted applications outsourced by customers to HP Services today sit in 70 data centers in 23 countries. HP has not committed publicly (that I'm aware of) to a consolidation plan for these centers; however, it will be difficult for HP to remain competitive in that industry if they do not consolidate duplicate centers used for client applications.
