Amazon Outage - What can you do

I think one of the biggest challenges facing any start-up is how to develop a sustainable DR strategy and plan which takes consideration of the current financial standing of the start-up.
I also think many start-ups with good intentions discuss, explore and document DR strategies most appropriate to there business, but how many actually test or execute the DR strategy prior to a major outage.
And it’s not good enough to just test the infrastructure, application and data
You got to literally pull the plug.
While many cloud vendors will claim that they can offer full redundancy and reliability its my opinion that all start-ups where it is financially viable should select two cloud providers i.e. primary and stand-by (DR).
Interesting debate at CloudAve
