It makes sense that IBM would put a strong play for disaster recovery considering that this will undoubtedly be one of the more in-demand services when it comes to first stage cloud adoption.  The trick will be to see how this type of solution meets the lower end of the market (SMBs) or if it will merely be adopted by the larger enterprises where IBM normally focuses.
