Disaster Recovery Testing

Hi all,


Our internal audits group requires disaster recovery testing on all enterprise level apps.  When we had our LMS in house this was fairly routine where we would be observed going through an exercise where we recovered the system to bare metal hardware and did a rebuild.  As we have moved to Canvas the group still insists on a observable DR exercise for the LMS.  Has anyone done anything similar or do you stick to the position that Canvas is AWS and therefor well covered by their own internal disaster recovery policies.  Just trying to get community consensus as I feel like paying for a cloud solution with a certified DR procedure and still trying to do internal DR testing may be overkill.
