I once toured the data center my company was using for disaster recovery and it was a mess. I was not impressed, but I was glad I toured the place, because it allowed me to make more informed decisions. Don't let a vendor try to drive your disaster recovery needs either. Based on your business risk tolerance and budget, you should be asking the questions not your vendor. Finally, get references to other companies in your industry and, ideally, find businesses that have previously used the vendor's disaster recovery facilities to see what their experiences were.
