NORWALK, Connecticut - Xerox will pay $100 million over six years to outsource data-center services to India's HCL Technologies, a Xerox spokesman said Sunday.

HCL will manage disaster-recovery preparation and consolidate Xerox's data centers in North America and Europe, said spokesman Bill McKee. The company has been cutting costs and announced last year it would slash 3,000 jobs from its worldwide payroll of 57,000.
