[At-Large] Cruz' revenge

ICANN’s meeting team has backups of all the configurations so once they replace the hardware it’s relatively straightforward to deploy the software / configuraitons to them.

Having extra hardware than what they already have would be pointless – they already have spares / extras anyway.

The only things impacted by this issue aren’t “critical”.

1 – the cache stuff from Akamai – sure, it’s nice to have, but not having it won’t have any real impact on anyone
2 – the “interactive” hubs – they were only used for some sessions in the main hall. The remote hubs aren’t impacted beyond that as far as I know

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.
