Vermont’s unemployment system now runs on a modern mainframe in New York

By Fred Thys, VTDigger – Oct 27, 2021

Shawn Nailor, deputy secretary of the Vermont Agency of Digital Services, is 53. He is just two years older than the computer system that determines Vermont’s unemployment benefits.  In an interview with VTDigger, Nailor said the mainframe computer is not the problem with the unemployment compensation system anymore.

Until the beginning of the pandemic, an old mainframe on Green Mountain Drive in Montpelier hosted Vermont’s unemployment compensation system. No longer. The system is now hosted on a modern mainframe run by Blue Hill Data Services, a company based in southern New York.

Blue Hill hosts large financial institutions. A spokesperson for the company said it hosts the mainframes of a lot of states, counties and private companies.
