Here’s an interesting story that I heard yesterday from a former colleague. He’d been speaking to a data centre manager in Dubai. Everything seemed to be going well up until the point he asked the Sheikh where his disaster recovery (DR) site was located and in the event of an incident how quickly could it be up and running.
“There is no need for BC plans or a DR site, it is all in God’s hands…if it happens, it happens!”

this is the way a blog should be! thanks!
Great blog cynic, I’m off to smoke a shisha pipe now and let what ever happens, happens!
BWhahaha, though I prefer the one “In God we trust, everyone else pay cash”
I’ve been at the receiving end of two proper disasters in my 10yrs with a large retail company. You need DR plans and you need to test them 🙂
