Let me put it in realistic terms, once every year or so!!


They went down Aug 2007 for more than 4 hours!!!


Believe me, my life on earth depends a lot at this time on this company and the way they do business, should I consider "No Single Point of Failure" on my career as well?

Hi Samuel,


The August 2007 was attributed to a power loss. The August 4 2009 was attributed to "human error" that caused the "BGP tables on the Internet to drop a route that resolved to cisco.com - 198.133.219.0/24".


I hope that "human" still has his job.
