What happens when a data center comes crashing down... literally? You've never seen a data center go down like this before. See how we did it. Watch the Data Center Down: Behind the Scenes at http://youtu.be/NuBm59m9Gxg

We put our high availability and disaster recovery technology to the ultimate test. We loaded a server rack with a multi-tier application stack including an Oracle database on Solaris and the application layer on Red Hat Enterprise Linux as primary data center. A disaster recovery site was set up on a second rack, our failover data center. The applications were clustered using Veritas Cluster Server. Veritas Replicator was set up to do data replication between the sites. And then the fun started, as we took our two "data centers" 18 stories up on a building in the heart of Silicon Valley and we dropped the primary rack off the roof.

What happened when this data center went down? First, it made a really loud boom. And then it seamlessly failed over to a recovery site. Exactly what a business would need.
