    In view of the fact that 17 million UK customers of RBS have been without proper banking services for the last week because of an IT failure, I'm not sure how far I would want to act on the advice of anybody responsible for RBS's IT infrastructure right now.

    To be fair, the failure was on the retail banking side [traditional mainframe and batch applications] rather than the more modern trading systems described here. That said, I wouldn't underestimate the challenges of preserving data availability and consistency in this kind of environment, especially in the presence of non-catastrophic errors that may go undetected for long periods.

    "not sure how far I would want to act on the advice of anybody responsible for RBS's IT infrastructure right now" Sounds like a tabloid journalist comment.
