Re: How did Hurricane Sandy disrupt your week so far?

I'm not going to divulge my company's internal architecture, but we don't have Data Centers anywhere near NY. I said the links between the U.S. and Europe go through there, as the graphic showed. Of course we have a backup circuit via a different provider, but it went down too. Yes once they got alerted they rerouted it and the loss of connectivity lasted a little over 1 hour.

Maybe it's my imagination, but you come across as lecturing me. It's not my design. It's simply a fact most of the undersea cables to Europe run through the NY area.
