The Obama administration has just three days left to fix Healthcare.gov, the buggy federal health insurance website, before its self-imposed deadline expires. But theres one new wrinkle that could make things better or worse: the website is moving to a new hosting provider. According to The Wall Street Journal, the US Department of Health and Human Services is replacing previous host Terremark, a subsidiary of Verizon, with Hewlett-Packard instead. The move doesnt seem to be related to Healthcare.govs troubles, as the HHS reportedly saught to replace Terremark in the spring, long before the hosting providers data centers suffered a pair of embarrassing crashes. HP was awarded a $38 million contract in the summer, according to the Journal.
