Re: Lies and Urban Myths

Maybe it's because I've worked so much in New Zealand, but we always design and test DR and our clients there take this seriously. When you live in an active earthquake, volcano, and tsunami zone you tend to be more aware that "disasters" happen pretty regularly and plan for them.

I wish I could say I'm shocked and surprised by the complete lack of awareness of BC and DR planning and testing among many businesses outside that region. But then I remember a conversation with a CTO where he told me that VMware was their DR solution since they could just reload the server images from storage (despite there being no offsite replication, no tape backups and rotation, no external power backup, etc. etc.)
