FBI Cuts Ribbon for New Data Center in Idaho

The FBI and its partners at the Department of Justice (DOJ) participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday for a new data center at the FBI’s facility in Pocatello, Idaho. This endeavor has been years in the making and is a significant milestone in the FBI’s broader information technology transformation initiative. The new data center will optimize infrastructure, information, and services by consolidating almost 100 data centers throughout DOJ. It substantially expands the footprint of the FBI’s existing Pocatello facility, which has been maintained for more than three decades.

This expansion provides the FBI and DOJ with approximately 140,000 square feet of additional space, accommodating both data center and office space capacity. This consolidation will enable the FBI to reduce operational costs, create efficiencies (most notably through energy reduction), and modernize the technological architecture.

The consolidation of dozens of data centers will strengthen the cybersecurity posture for all DOJ components using the facility. It will also enhance collaboration, information sharing, and the ability to execute advanced analytics. The new data center will provide the flexibility needed to focus on and rapidly respond to mission requirements.

The FBI appreciates the support of the Pocatello community in helping to bring this project to fruition.
