Another Obamacare glitch: Data center shuts down
CNBC ^ | Sunday, 27 Oct 2013 | 6:51 PM ET | Reuters

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.

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.

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!!

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.

Thanks,

And I stated this before, in so many words.

We have a handful of Government agencies that are not only “required” to play a part, but are also pushing to be part of this process.

The conflicts among their data sets vs. the “user-defined”, “dynamic”, inputs on the front-end are more than this system can handle.

November ?

How about Never.

The more money they pour into this effort, the more complex it will become.

Certain Government agencies will need to sacrifice their need or desire to be part of this, and as a result, and in order to deliver something that works, they will violate the law and open this up to “MASSIVE” fraud.

Congress needs to call the data center vendors to capital hill for a public hearing and start asking some questions. Usually a failure like this is something that has happened in the past and is likely to repeat itself again. The GAO and IG needs to do a complete investigation of this project.

My wife works for Verizon Terremark...she reminded me that Terremark only supplies the PLATFORM on which the Obamacare website sits..but that is ALL that Terremark does.. she’s in the Dallas office, so, has no idea what is occuring in the Virginia office. Terremark is a computer website HOSTING company, from what I understand. Apparently, they simply maintain the computers. Beyond that, I have no idea what they do, other than what she has told me, which isn’t a lot.

This is further proof that Obamacare will self-destruct as it is unveiled to the American public. No need for government shutdowns or refusing to raise the debt ceiling, which only distract the public from the cascade of failures that is Obamacare.

In Culpeper, they maintain security, environment, power (fed from different directions on the grid), and have a buttload of Internet connectivity from almost all of the major Internet carriers from around the world. Other than that, it’s basically BYOD, which is where the problems with Obamacare seem to be.
