What would happen if one of our major data centers blew up or had a plane crash into it? Has a Disaster Recovery plan ever been tested end to end? Could we recover? How long would it take to recover? Would UPS survive?

Since then, I understand that UPS has distributed the facilities and backed up the data in such a way that we can quickly resume operations if a disaster strikes. They actually tested this process by restoring data and seeing how things went at the back up site. As an aside, our primary site in Mahwah has generators and battery capacity to run the system without outside power.
Obviously any serious disaster would probably impact our operations for a few hours....but I believe we are well covered to restore process and resume operations quickly.

That's assuming a lot. Have we ever completely tested our system?
