CM has two data centers, and most of its applications run at both locations at the same time. This means that the system will continue to work even if a disaster occurs at one of the locations. The first data center is located at CM's head office in Schaarbeek, and until 2011 the second data center was also managed internally at a different location. “When that building was closed we started to look for an external partner,” explained Koen Crabbe, ICT Infrastructure Director at CM. “We wanted to select a robust, well-managed, Belgian data center that could also guarantee good access to data.
