8 In early 2011 the Scottish Government conducted a survey of data centre use in the public sector to gather a more detailed understanding of the landscape, identify opportunities for sharing and to provide a baseline to support policy development. The survey received a 48% response rate and covered central government, local government, health, police, and universities and colleges. It found that: 43% of organisations shared facilities with other public bodies; 71% of public sector data centres have spare capacity; and 51% of organisations were willing to share spare capacity with other public bodies.
