Once again, I suggest you talk to the folks you work with that deal with replication. My experience is that "large NY financials" do both sync replication for <90 miles and then async replication to a third tertiary location that is 200+ miles away. Not sure I agree with your on where you think the next big threats are .. but I don't think we could discuss that with any signal:noise ratio! cheers, lincoln.
