Non-traditional Data Disasters - article by Sunbelt System Software|
intro:- I used to feel smug about our own disaster recovery plans here at
STORAGEsearch. But I discovered a
biological weakness last summer when, following a power cut, I went to our barn
to switch on the generator. When I moved the cover I also moved a live wasps
nest. I got stung about 6 times before I had time to realise what was going on
and made a dash back to the main building followed by a buzzing swarm. It was a
bad summer for wasps. We had 5 nests around the farmhouse, and as we found out
later, 2 in the barn. The pest control companies were busy and it took a long
time before they got round to us and anyone could safely get access back to the
barn, where we also stored one set of offsite backups.
