Security reviewing Pulumi SaaS, and one question came up re: DRP (disaster recovery planning) strategy if/when Pulumi SaaS goes down. I was thinking of saving the intermediary yaml files somewhere, so we can still deploy our stuff when the Pulumi SaaS becomes unavailable (down for maintenance or looses network connectivity) Using a GCP or Azure bucket for state management can help too, but doesn't cover the network connectivity scenario Anyone here has put a DRP strategy in place?

the Pulumi SaaS itself has backup/DR plans, contact for more information about that as for your own plan: you could export the state file after every operation, but you lose a lot of the benefits of our console: it largely depends on your risk tolerance
