IBMlogo3 EbizIBM is working with Marist College to develop a cloud computing infrastructure meant to help data network operators avert communications service disruptions in the event of a natural disaster.

The experimental technology uses a software-defined networking tool that is designed to manage data flows across virtual and physical networks and to prevent loss of data and voice services during a storm or a crisis, IBM said Thursday.

IBM’s platform is undergoing evaluation at a company-sponsored SDN Innovation Lab on Marist campus.

Casimer DeCusatis, an IBM distinguished engineer, said the technology intends for data center operators to move data and applications out of a danger zone using mobile devices.

The Marist laboratory was constructed to support research work on cloud networking innovations and prepare students for a technical career.

IBM expects to launch the communications network technology in the marketplace next year.
