I don’t understand the “pun intended” issue.
About the contents, I am with you implying that there is a cost-benefit issue about decisions on the backup issues.
However, being a well-known paranoiac, I am worried about the possible bad press about it.
That is why I do hope that we will have no hiccups, not even minor ones, in Hyderabad.
The eyes of the world will be upon us.

Hello Roberto,

Please tell me the first question is "pun intended" ;-) As to the second; well I understand it's prudent to have backup of network services/data but what does having a backup of over 100 tons of hardware mean? I think it definitely will mean a lot of redundancy resulting to a waste of resources as well.

As I note from the announcement[1], looks like a number of the devices has been replaced. The remote hubs will be the major hit. I can imagine the ICANN tech are working around the logistics.

Two questions:

•         We always talk about disaster recovery, duplication of resources, etc. Why did we not put in place these measures? The question will now be “if those folks cannot secure their own equipment, how can they be trusted to take care of the Internet?”

•         What will be the real impact for the meeting? I cannot believe that we do not have backup solutions, as Murphy implies.
We live in interesting times indeed. Brings me back to 1998, when CORE servers were stolen.
