I would echo the earlier comments.  Take disaster and business continuity planning seriously.  Actually test your back up systems, and make certain that everyone understands their role.  I used to be a pilot, and a large part of training wasn't on how to fly an aircraft, it was how to fly an aircraft when things are going seriously wrong.  Funny enough, I actually had a problem with one engine on a Piper Apache twin, and it was actually easier to deal with in reality than the training.  Preparedness makes big challenges manageable, just as Christopher pointed out.
