Skip to comments.Another Obamacare glitch: Data center shuts down
Posted on 10/27/2013 4:40:21 PM PDT by xzins
A data center critical for allowing uninsured Americans to buy health coverage under President Barack Obama's healthcare law went down on Sunday, the U.S. government said, in the latest problem for the "Obamacare'' rollout.
Verizon's Terremark operates the data center behind a federal system for determining eligibility for government subsidies to buy insurance nationwide and hosts HealthCare.gov, the website that makes insurance available in 36 of the 50 states.
The data center experienced a failure on Sunday that led it to lose network connectivity, Health and Human Services Department spokeswoman Joanne Peters said.
The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services told Connecticut officials about the outage and gave no indication of when the data services hub would be functioning again, said a spokeswoman for Access Health CT, the Connecticut exchange.

Sorry, about last one. Forgot the web address, etc.
Healthcare.gov application and enrollment system down because company that hosts site has an outage; Terremark working to fix ASAP - @JoannePtrs
The commies should have used the same company to set up their healthcare scam that the NSA used to set up their SpyOnAmerica network.
Caused by a reaction to a hateful anti-Obamacare YouTube video.
Obama cares about only one thing....
That all of you who have become successful via hard work must share your wealth with those who are either too dumb or too lazy to earn enough money to pay for their own healthcare.
Since there are not enough rich people, the middleclass must pay for the poor class.
I was first and you eliminated my thread? Huh?
Obviously Bush’s fault. He was born in Connecticut, right?
You couldn’t make this stuff up.
It is clear that the “fixes” currently in-work on the ZeroCare website are going to be little more than applying bandaids to a gaping wound and hoping that they will stop the bleeding!
With an estimated 500 million lines of code, I don’t believe that they can adequately fix the problems in the time allotted. John McAfee observed (rightly so) that (1) the whole thing needs to be scrapped and re-done and (2) these websites are a hackers dream!
Every bandaid they apply to the current site will only expose new problems. All zero is doing is a little symbolism over substance and throwing more of our money down a black hole!!
If someone wrote this script and tried to bring it to TV, they’d reject it as unbelievable.
Talked to an acquaintance the other day who’s the CEO of one of the nation’s largest concrete firms. He said his IT guys were telling him they’d love to have a crack at building that site. They told him they could build it for 5 million bucks, plus or minus a bit.
They most likely ran over their monthly bandwidth allotment. Since they probably hosted healthcare.gov at Godaddy or someplace like it for no more than $10 a month, maybe they should try upgrading to the “Pro plan.” ;-)
Please people, understand.
The front end of this adventure is “NOT” the issue.
The back-end that attempts to connect with dozens of other Government agencies for “verification” or “tracking” is what is causing the problems.
