  12. 12. Backup  Keep Your Friends Close and Your Backups Distant In the wake of Hurricane Ike, one organization we spoke with had displaced staff working remotely in four different cities. One staff person reminded us that if you’re storing your backups in the same city as your office computers, there’s a danger that one catastrophe will destroy both: “Consider your entire city a potential point of failure!” This advice can also apply to remote backup and web hosting services.
