Eliminate single points of failure

The systems team has been working on this high-priority ticket all day. Here is some of the description text:


"In an effort to ensure reliability for DreamWorks services, we have discovered a single point of failure: Earth.


Currently, we have service and hardware redundancies in place, but if something were to happen to the Earth, these redundancies would fail.


We need to have redundant datacenters on at least two other planets. We might need to explore the possibility of looking into other galaxies for a second off-planet datacenter."


Thanks for the laugh, Chris. Happy April Fools' Day to you all.
