One of the most overlooked aspects of a disaster recovery strategy is making sure that data is being protected while you are at the DR site. In a classic primary to DR site replication strategy, a primary data center failure means that all operations are running at that DR site. The problem is that the DR site is a singular not a plural. That means that in the event of a disaster that DR site becomes a single point of failure.
