This was hypothetical. I was making this comparison to say that RAM is limited, and not everyone has enough ram to use for RAMdisk.
We are mirrored locally and off-site, with 2 generators locally, 1 generator off-site, and an UPS array on both sites.
To take us down, both our on-site and the off-site 10 miles away would have to blow up simultaneously
We aren't a large company, we have less than 300 employees, and ~250 of them are truckers, probably less than 50 physical workstations. We do have some very large and very important databases though.
I am sure you take similar steps for TPU also.
