I know this sounds like an odd question, but I was wondering how safe the web data, databases or any backup data stored on disk drives are.
For example, is Dreamhost protected in the event of a high altitude nuclear explosion (EMP blast)? In a similar situation, is the data protected in the event of an extremely large solar storm?
I’ve heard that these events could wipe out all electronics and possibly hard drive data.
The solar cycle is supposed to peak in 2012. We also know about the 2012 prophecy thing happening as well. In addition, if the situation with Iran results in high altitude nuclear blasts (EMP blasts) that result in all electronics and the power grid being knocked out.
Just trying to be safe than sorry! I would not want all of my data being wiped out at Dreamhost AND my computer at the same time with no backup!
