Lies and Urban Myths

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery don't exist. Its an urban myth.

I have seen companies spending hundreds of thousands on DR for DEVELOPMENT systems that would NEVER have worked. Yet in 20 years I have seen about 2 companies who had a REAL WORKING disaster recovery system in place.

Anyone who tells you that their company has any form of real BC beyond a few backup tapes and some telephones for the sales weasels are just lying to protect their job, and that job is ticking things off on a check list and passing reassurances up the line so the people above them can tick the same things on a different bit of paper.
