Doktornotor, thanks for providing that information!
It all depends what your concerns are I guess. When discussing this type of configurations with people, it all comes down in making the choice of security and speed. If you go for the additional security, then you (and the ones that give you an SLA
) need to be aware that certain tasks will take more time and need to be prepared (and tested) on a regular basis. If you are going for it, then yes, you don't want to start with doing crazy stuff when the Disaster has already happened. You need to make sure that the config was already exported upfront and ready to be used when needed.
With more and more functionality coming to different platforms, I can only think (and believe) that these type of decisions will need to be made more and more. Which will mean that you need to understand the additional work, balance the pro's and con's and let the SLA decision makers know about it.
