For those that still believe that backups are not necessary when using a cloud services provider, you might want to reconsider. In many cases, you (as a customer) are responsible for these items, not your provider. Don’t forget, the cloud is someone else’s computer.

Learn and rehearse your BCP and DRP, because catastrophic loss of data can happen to anyone. And this is as bad as it geta… the servers at SBG2 are probably a pile of ashes with the datacentre being destroyed.

P.S.: Not sure where to categorize this, because it can go in many categories.
