OVH SBG2 datacenter has been destroyed by a fire.

Very sorry to hear that and wishing their team (and customers impacted) well.

For everyone else not impacted.... that's a good reminder to backup your data (often) and test your recovery plan.

@dcid best wishes for the staff and everyone involved! Disasters are serious in every aspect.

But as I read about this, I can't help but think about that other tragedy that happened with a few years ago, that culminated in a so-called "Check Your Backups Day" news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1

I guess are like exercise: everyone knows they have to do it, should be doing it, will do it someday, but wish they did it more only after the disaster strikes.
