Oklahoma is spending $110 million to protect digital information like health records.

The data stored at a center in Oklahoma City is now backed up in Garland, Texas.

Director of Oklahoma Management and Enterprise Services Steven Harpe said they chose to store the data in Texas so that any natural disasters or major weather events that happen in Oklahoma will not affect the server.

Money from the federal CARES Act is funding the project.
