Submission + - White House CIO describes "worst day" ever (computerworld.com)

dcblogs writes: In the first 40 days of President Barack Obama’s administration, the White House email system was down 23% of time, according to the White House CIO Brook Colangelo, the person who also delivered the “first presidential Blackberry.” The White House IT systems inherited by the new administration were in bad shape. Over 82% of the White House's technology had reached its end of life. Desktops, for instance, still had floppy disk drives, including the one Colangelo delivered to Rahm Emanuel, Obama's then chief of staff and now Mayor of Chicago. There were no redundant email servers.
