Gustav Found Some Gulf Coast IT Departments Ready--This Time

Hurricane Gustav didn't hit the Gulf Coast as hard as had been feared. But some IT managers in New Orleans said they were ready for whatever the storm brought, having upgraded their disaster recovery capabilities since Katrina and Rita devastated the region three years ago.
For instance, since 2005, Loyola University has added an intermediate disaster-recovery site at an out-of-state location to help maintain communications and keep a simplified version of the school's Web site up and running in emergencies.
