The recent earthquake in New Zealand and this morning's devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan set off a lot of discussion on twitter about DR planning and testing.

I wrote a blog post on our SQL Server Magazine blog this morning asking people to think about their testing – see here.

I'm conducting two surveys here. One is asking about testing your DR strategy and the other is asking about whether the DR strategy considers human nature in the event of a natural disaster. Depending on the disaster, people won't necessarily be thinking about the company as their first priority.

Feel free to leave comments about your DR strategy and testing experiences and I'll include some of them when I editorialize the results in a week or two. And by all means send me private email if you want to vent in more depth! (But nothing sent in email will be included in the editorial.)
