The CIO of the Army has imposed a moratorium on server purchases across all Army operations. This move is aimed at stopping buying single-purpose servers as they begin consolidating Army data centers and creating compute clouds in select Army data centers.

A memo announcing the moratorium was issued last month by Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Sorenson, the Army’s CIO. “We want to review all server purchases” before they’re made, said Michael Krieger, deputy CIO of the Army, in an interview with InformationWeek.

The Army has around 1.4 million users and an IT budget of approximately $10 billion.  This would make the Army one of the largest IT user organizations in the world. The clamp down on server purchases comes amid a resurgence of server sales to businesses, with server shipments jumping 23% in the first quarter, compared to the same period a year earlier, according to IDC.
