[ How long ago were the notions of failover and hot-sites mainstream for
major pnline services?  About 40 years, I think.

[ A lot of ISO standards are vague requirements statements rather than
tech specs, but ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 22301 appear to be relevant. ]

Tabcorp servers damaged after fire at third-party data centre
Causes service issues through the weekend.

Tabcorp suffered outages to customer-facing services over the weekend
after a "fire incident" caused "extensive damage" to servers it hosted
at [an un-named] third-party data centre.

The problems started at about 11.30am Saturday and continued through the
weekend, with race meetings delayed or postponed as a result.

[ The sport must go on.  Unless it's raison detre disappears of course.]
