Nuclear Distance

There is a nice article in the New York times explaining how Pennsylvania is selling itself as a DR site for New York finance companies. They want to be close enough for synchronous data storage, but more than 50 miles to be out of a blast zone.

Mr. Abdel from Level 3 is quoted as saying

“There is a need for large data center space measured in tens of thousands of square feet, and cheap real estate helps,” he said.

Mr. Rendell admitted that developing Wall Street West “is a little bit of a chicken and egg.”

It's Wall Street West (Rich Miller article here) vs. Conneticut and others North of New York - all trying to say that they are the ideal place for all New York companies to have disaster recovery in.
