Re: If only...
'if only there was a company that could store it off site and return it to your business as needed'.
Around 15 years ago I went as part of a group to support a third-party customer who had hired a dedicated DR company.
The DR company's dedicated DR site was in another country in a site that was entirely surrounded by a grass-covered embankment - bomb proof(?). The 3rd party who used the DR company wanted to test the end-to-end process. They picked a nice simple NT server with a couple of DBs on it as the first step.
They allocated a whole weekend to this - did they know something we didn't?
On Saturday morning, the DR folk who *knew* we were coming did not have the required tapes ready.
They then took around two hours to find them.
They then realised after more hours of faffing about that they could not provide the contractually required server until late the same day. Despite having dozens and dozens of servers 'ready' on site.
Long before they found and allocated us one we had left in disgust.
On Sunday morning we returned and restored the NT server, recovered the DB's and completed local testing to our customer's satisfaction.
After a short booze-cruise by the driver, the boot fully stocked and the car's front wheels making occasional contact with the ground, we headed back to the UK.
The driver generously handed over some of his liquid stock to us passengers, so not an entirely wasted trip.
