I’m sitting in our disaster recovery facility trying to keep awake and pass the time as I wait for other team members to complete their portions of our semi-annual test. A disaster recovery test is similiar to a fire drill only replace people with computers. We are “practicing” restoring operations to a different facility, simulating an unrecoverable disaster to our main computing center. My team has limited involvment but our presence is necessary. I took this picture from outside the data center. Yes, it is as barren as the picture depicts.
