IBM opens cloud resiliency center in N.C.

September 22, 2014

IBM has opened a new cloud resiliency center in Raleigh, N.C., to help support business continuity in the wake of cyber incidents or natural disasters causing potentially costly disruptions. The 72,000-square-foot facility, unveiled Monday, will serve IBM's Business Continuity and Resiliency Services (BCRS) organization.

Located in Research Triangle Park, the resiliency center now stands as BCRS's largest single-site investment in the U.S. and will guide enterprises in utilizing the cloud to ensure they can “recover vital data in minutes, making any incident virtually invisible to the customer,” a release from IBM said.

“The overall market opportunity for business continuity and disaster recovery is expected to grow to almost $32 billion by 2015,” IBM said, later adding that the investment would help provide customers “integrated traditional and cloud-based recovery capabilities.”
