A Different Perspective on DR

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.

The response?

“There is no need for BC plans or a DR site, it is all in God’s hands…if it happens, it happens!”

imageI guess it’s another way of looking at things?

  1. 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 🙂
