PermaLinkWhat's The Back Story On This Messaging Disaster?
02:14:10 PM

Chad Dickerson's recent column in InfoWorld addresses the career limiting nature of paying insufficient attention to backup and restore.

Four months of company e-mail has been lost and simply can’t be recovered by the IT staff. They have tried everything, and she’s ready to pull the plug on those involved — and I really can’t blame her.

Although Dickerson implies that in this case the backup tapes weren't any good, I wonder if that was the real problem. Could this have been a case similar to Thirteen days in Exchange Hell? Could it be that the choice of running a messaging platform that has some inherently difficult problems in disaster recovery scenarios, and the choice of not running a clustered environment -- choices probably made at the top of IT management -- might have been as much or more at fault as the actions of the IT guys in the trenches?

I wonder if anyone can shed further light on this?
