Work area recovery

Keep business running and employees productive
during a disaster or disruption

Many companies today have a plan for keeping their data centers running during a disaster or disruption, but equally important is being able to maintain employee productivity. Events ranging from a power outage to a natural disaster can shutter your offices and bring critical operations to a halt.

IBM work area recovery services offer business resilience centers from which your employees can work when faced with a disruption. These comfortable, highly secure facilities are equipped with communications capabilities, multivendor IT equipment, and a reliable data center to keep your business online and your employees working through any situation.
