John McArthur's insight:

I keep seeing this reference "93 percent of companies that suffer a significant data loss are out of busines within 5 years," but:

 

1) there is no Bureau of Labor, it's "Bureau of Labor Statistics"

2) a search of the data.bls.gov website brings back zero results corresponding to this claim.

Called Bureau of Labor Statistics and was directed to Business Employment Dynamics section. Phone: 202-691-6553 I'm awaiting a call back. I have to say, I've found the people who answer the phone at the federal government are extremely helpful.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Consider: “...
John McArthur's insight:

Believe me. I get it. Big government can be a problem. But as is typical, when disasters get personal, individuals look to government to bail them out. Too many government regulations. Yes. But tell that to people living near SuperFund sites. Tell that to the people who lived near Love Canal. And too much government aid? Perhaps. But tell that to the people of Staten Island, still waiting for a chance to rebuild.

One of the issues that must be considered when building a stretched DAG is that Exchange cannot tell the difference between a WAN failure and the failure of the Exchange servers on the other side of the WAN link.
John McArthur's insight:

Brian makes an important point that recovering a lagged DAG yields data loss. It's also instructive to pay attention to the complex recovery process, since the DAG only covers the database, and not the configuration files.

John McArthur's insight:

Although not everything is the same, given the complexity of applications and application interconnectedness, it is difficult to determine on an application-by-application basis the relative importance of data, and even more difficult to maintain this assessment, given the dynamic nature of applications and data centers.

This article provides an alternative view on the role of government in disasters, that of funds collection and dispersment, but not program management. He argues for putting control over use of funds and program administration closer to the point of use. Perhaps the current system is kind of like, "Thanks for the car. Did you know I can't drive?"
