I am Sorry All Lines to India Are Busy Right Now, Please Call Back Later! ! !
Does this sound Familar, it should A fifth cable has been cut severly impacting Internet capabilty to India and the Middle East.
I can hear what my off-shore competitors are saying right now "Yes I Know this has been going on for a very long time, but don’t worry. Our U.S. Based team is well equipped to handle the workload."
I know there are only 5 of us in the U.S. and 100 in India. But really we have you covered, really we do. Those 5 Database Administrators in the U.S. all wear red capes like superman and are capable of handling anything that comes along.
Think of all the money you are saving going off shore for your database administration support. Really what are the chances of your Database breaking right now in the middle of a 5th underwater cable being cut and putting you out of business? We all know lightening never hits the same place twice. Really what were the Odds of 6 cables getting cut?
I just can’t imagine calling or emailing for help and getting the response from my remote database administration provider…
If this is a database emergency, please call back later when service is resumed
I am not sure who is the author of this Map. It shows where the 5 cables are that were cut that are impacting Internet connections to India and the Middle East.
When I read the comment on Engadget on the fourth cable being cut, I just could not believe it. It Stated, “For the fourth time in a week, an undersea communications cable has apparently been cut (or "failed due to a power outage," as some sources suggest), and while no official reports of subversion have surfaced just yet, things are beginning to get suspicious. Flag Telecom, a subsidiary of Indian conglomerate Reliance ADA Group, has had two cables damaged in the span of a week -- a quandary it has never dealt with until now.”

I saw some interesting comments on this topic I Love Bonnie.net, here are the comments that caught my attention most:
We’re supposed to believe that these were most likely caused by an anchor from a ship fighting a storm. This author finds it hard to believe that this anchor was drug behind a boat from Egypt to Malaysia.
So everyone is scrambling to try and figure out why this would happen. Here are some of the possible reasons that I have found while looking around the Internet:
* U.S. Government
* Israeli Government
* Underwater Monsters
* The Cloverfield Monster
* Rudy Giuliani
What is clear is, if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, smells like a duck it’s a duck. Something is not right here. I don’t buy it that this is just mother nature at work cutting these cables.
Think of this comment from Flag Telecom “Flag Telecom, a subsidiary of Indian conglomerate Reliance ADA Group, has had two cables damaged in the span of a week -- a quandary it has never dealt with until now
If the majority of Ntirety’s Remote Database Administrators were located in India, this would be putting our clients at real risk. The lack of being able to maintain a stable Internet connection is a real problem if you are in the remote database administration business. Unlike application development where is you waited for a new release of the software for a few days it’s not ideal, but it would not put you out of business. A down database needs to be dealt with immediately.
