What we are trying to do is create our own "hot-site".  Maybe I'm using the
term incorrectly, but we would have our own AS/400 that can be used for
recovery purposes in a disaster, at a remote location (actually, another one
of our offices located several miles away from the offices that currently
house our AS/400 systems).

We have a production system and a system currently used for
testing/development purposes by our programming staff.  Both systems and our
programming staff are located in the same building.

We are exploring the option of using this test/development system for
recovery in the event of a disaster.  Of course we can't leave it in the
same building as the production system, and would have to move it several
miles away.  Our programming staff would still use it for their activities,
but will remain where they are.

The programming staff would still need to load software/data from tape for
testing/development activities as they currently do.  I just trying to
accomodate these activities without having to physically drive over to the
remote site, which is normally un-manned.
