    Marist College students Zachary Meath (on left) and Mary Miller demonstrate a cloud computing invention that--via the swipe of a finger on a smartphone or tablet--can prevent costly voice and data communications service disruptions caused by hurricanes and other natural disasters. Meath and Miller are collaborating with IBM engineers and Marist faculty to test the innovation, which can enable network operators to slash--from days to minutes--the time it takes to move voice and data services to a safe location. The invention is being demonstrated to clients and is expected to be commercially available in 2014. (Credit: IBM)
