Does Dreamwidth have a disaster recovery plan for such an event?

For example, redundant hardware to fail over to, either immediately (everything is running twice already, and one failure will just take out the redundancy until it's repaired/replaced), quickly (the fallback is running continually and synchronising but isn't "live" until it's activated when needed), or standing around in a corner waiting for last night's full backup to be loaded onto it?

I suppose those are all expensive to keep around 24/7, for the reasonably unlikely event of a catastrophic failure.

Or a war fund/insurance for purchasing replacement hardware?
