Excuse me, what just happened? Resilience is tough when your failure is due to a 'sequence of events that was almost impossible to foresee'

Re: The

Many years ago I was talking to a big bank about DR/HA. Shortly before, they had run their fail over test and went to the pub to celebrate the successful procedure. Suitably refreshed, they went back to the office to perform the fail back, only to discover that one of their key steps was missing (and code needed to be written) so they had to carry on running at the DR site for several months until the next scheduled downtime window.

Never forget the fail back
