With disasters like Sandy fresh in their minds, many decision makers unfortunately know what it’s like to have their networks knocked offline for extended periods of time. That is part of the reason the phrase “disaster recovery” is such a prominent one in the business world today.
But believe it or not, many of the companies knocked offline during Sandy actually had formidable disaster recovery plans in place. They had generators, redundant systems and everything else they thought they needed to ensure business continuity no matter what Mother Nature threw their direction.
It turns out they were missing one essential ingredient in their plans: gasoline.
Indeed, as gas stations went dry and fuel was rationed, Sandy exploited some flaws in the region’s fuel supply system. Businesses that assumed gasoline would be readily available no matter how bad the storm turned out were simply out of luck.
