Tuesday's attacks have led to a surge in business for disaster-recovery companies, reports CNET News.com. Comdisco says it's now supporting 35 corporate customers who have had their computing facilities affected by the attacks and related government actions across the country. Rival SunGard has dispatched more than 750 employees to assist 82 companies with declared or looming data-related disaster operations. Between the two companies, over 39 emergency computing data centers have been opened to support the needs of customers and keep business running smoothly.
