Webhost hack wipes out data for 100,000 sites


“A large internet service provider said data for as many as 100,000 websites was destroyed by attackers who targeted a zero-day vulnerability in a widely-used virtualization application” Oops!

You can run so many guests on a physical box, each one hosting hundreds of web sites that when the host goes down, it is a huge part of the company going down as well.  Virtualization maximizes the hardware but also increases the risks! 

How do you mitigate that risk?
