Sungard Availability Services expands Dublin workplace recovery facility

Sungard AS has announced that its Dublin, Ireland, workplace recovery facility now offers 80 end-user positions on a shared basis, with additional space available for those customers who want their own dedicated solution. Capacity for a further 100 shared positions is also available to meet demand.

This investment continues the momentum of the past two years which saw an investment into a Tier-III data centre at Profile Park, the appointment of Carmel Owens as general manager for Ireland, and the expansion of Sungard AS’ successful Channel Program into the EMEA region.

Carmel Owens commented: “From IT failures, cyber attacks, strikes and environmental failures, there’s a huge demand in the Irish market for IT as well as people recovery services. Disaster recovery is becoming increasingly important as businesses face evolving disruptions alongside a changing regulatory landscape.

“Today’s aggressively competitive world means businesses need to be operating with a ‘mentality to build in resilience and recovery strategies should they experience disruption. With more than 40 years’ experience helping ensure organisations keep their mission critical people, processes and technologies available no matter what, Sungard AS is well placed to help Irish businesses secure their availability, despite the myriad risks and challenges they face. We’re excited to speak to customers about our enhanced portfolio and look forward to working with them to make the most of these new capabilities.”
