Explosion at StatCounter
An interesting test case for website disaster recovery and failover at StatCounter. According to its blog, StatCounter's host facility exploded at the weekend. This had the effect of wiping our service for most of its customer base. Happily Stat's customers are fairly forgiving and loyal (me included). BUT if this has been my bank, I would have been a whole lot less understanding. This should make you think. How would your customers react if you had significant downtime? What contingency do you have, in case the worst happens. Read a bit more about how to measure website host performance.
