Planning for downtime with on-demand CRM

Learn best practices to utilize if your on-demand CRM application goes down in this tip.

I've heard about Salesforce.com's outages. If my on-demand application goes down, what are some best practices for dealing with users during downtime?
The best practice that I can think of is to have a plan ready for such a possibility. Better yet, ask yourself if there are ways to build redundancy into your daily practices. For example, most on-demand solutions give you a remote or disconnected user capability for those times when you might be out of wireless range. Most also offer a download of some information to desktop products like Outlook. Using some of those capabilities can build redundancy into your daily practices so that if you have an event you might be able to get by for a short time.
