back to article What Reg readers are planning for their datacentre

When 481 Reg Readers were asked to rate their IT delivery capability in terms of responsiveness, service level management, cost control and business alignment, only a quarter claimed a good level of performance across all areas.

@Eadon - If you weren't so pedantic about other OSes it would be fair to not be pedantic here.

Anyway, a Modern Windows server only needs to be rebooted rarely, updates aside.

You certainly wouldn't update your software on a live system, when you can remove a cluster node, update and re-introduce the node.
