In Business
Since 2008

Business Continuity Resources (BCR) was established in 2008 to provide advanced computer infrastructure solutions to Fortune 500 companies allowing the ability to disseminate secure, fault tolerant data to anyone, anywhere at any time. In 2016, BCR took on the challenge of solving for the complex need to provide high density electrical loads and massive heat exhaust conditions that blockchain infrastructure creates. BCR mastered high density power deployments and cooling techniques needed to operate blockchain equipment.

The evolution of compute power coupled with our ability to support it has revolutionized our business model, placing BCR in a position to rapidly expand and develop our own blockchain facilities.

BCR has over 20+ years of combined data center industry experience, delivering cost effective, scalable enterprise grade infrastructure solutions. BCR is known within the industry as the “go to” organization that solves complex computer infrastructure needs, using cutting edge technologies like high scale air, adiabatic, and immersion cooling techniques that host the most advanced technology applications to date.

Our History

Successfully delivering fully managed IT services to Fortune 500 companies

Twitter

In 2010, Twitter realized that their IT needs outgrew their existing hosting provider (NTT Communications). Twitter issued a formal Request for Proposal (RFP) in which BCR won and was selected to implement a migration and growth strategy. BCR facilitated the identification of land and electricity and managed the data center design and construction to build a 36,000 sq ft purpose-built data center in Bluffdale, Utah. This was officially Twitter’s first company owned data center.

In 2014 the VP of Data Center Operations for NY Life contracted BCR to facilitate a Request for Proposal (RFP) with IBM that would allow NY Life to downsize and consolidate their data centers around the world. BCR negotiated on behalf of IBM, a $501-million-dollar contract to downsize and close down NY Life’s data centers and migrate the IT workloads along with support staff to IBM and Tata Communications.

Mears

In 2020 Mears Group contracted with BCR to identify land and power that would accommodate a 2-phase immersion cooling 1.5MW data center. BCR selected a quiet area in Georgia, negotiated the land and power contacts and is in the process of identifying potential customers to utilize this infrastructure. Once complete, Mears Group is looking to expand this capability nationwide along major US pipeline projects.

Merlin TPS

In 2021 MerlinTPS and BCR have joined forces to help MerlinTPS identify potential strategic partners or customers to help deploy their solution that addresses the vulnerabilities that exist in our national energy and power grid. Our modern society is completely dependent on GPS for not only navigation and emergency services, but to maintain the precise timing required for the power grid, communication networks, and data centers. Once complete, MerlinTPS is looking to expand their technology nationwide to protect America’s critical infrastructure. Time transfer synchronization accuracy is extremely critical to protecting the U.S. energy grid and communications infrastructure from disastrous outages.

Well-positioned to take advantage of this pivotal moment in history

The Internet is known as the backbone of the World Wide Web, connecting people, companies, and governments across the Earth. Blockchain is taking precedence as a decentralized fault tolerant network that shares live time validated data amongst all parties that access the application. Like the Internet, Blockchain will once again revolutionize interactions within the human population by validating data that is securely shared. Bitcoin is one technology that takes advantage of blockchain, and while not a traditional safe-haven asset, offers an interesting alternative to gold as a non-correlated, deflationary store of value during what may be the most tumultuous economic period of this century.

BCR is in position to utilize its decades of experience, elite class of vendors, capability of understanding how and where to uncover land and power, and blend cutting edge technologies together to rapidly develop and expand its current blockchain facilities, thus capitalizing on this moment in time.

Our Vision

Create the world’s most efficient, eco-friendly, speed to market solutions for data centers and the cloud while efficiently leveraging high performance computing for emerging technologies

BCR will achieve 100% Net
Carbon-Neutrality in 2022

BCR selected Georgia as a place to conduct business and develop high density blockchain infrastructure due to its historic conservational roots and its ability to produce affordable, reliable, green commercial energy. BCR will achieve 100% net-carbon neutrality in 2022. We believe that the steady electrical load that digital asset mining provides to utility companies will help serve as a catalyst that significantly accelerates the adoption of renewable energies. We look forward to being a leader in this charge.

Since 2008, BCR has made a name as a trusted technology advisor by selecting top industry partners and utilizing cutting-edge infrastructure solutions to solve for the next generation of technology advancements. These existing long-term relationships help us pave the way for our “Speed to Market” approach.

Time is the most important asset we have. Our team knows exactly what to purchase and from whom, so we can be as efficient with our resources as possible. Our experience allows us to set tighter timelines, accomplish goals faster and be more efficient than larger bureaucratic companies.
