IBM Inaugurates Cloud Resiliency Center in RTP

IBM officially opened a cloud resiliency center in Research Triangle Park (RTP), North Carolina. The facility aims to provide state-of-the-art business continuity capabilities in the cloud to protect companies from potential costly disruptions.

IBM’s new resiliency center integrates cloud and traditional disaster recovery capabilities with new physical security features. A resiliency center team will monitor developing disaster events and then mobilize as needed to ensure that the infrastructure for all customers is configured to handle the latest threats to keep data, applications, people and transactions secure.  IBM said cloud resiliency services can significantly reduce the disaster recovery times to a matter of minutes.

IBM expects the overall market opportunity for business continuity and disaster recovery to grow to almost $32 billion by 2015. This year, IBM will also be opening two new cloud based resiliency centers in Mumbai, India and Izmir, Turkey.
