"If you have single points of failure you deserve everything you get."

Are you suggesting that multiple points of failure are better? Maybe I'm being pedantic, but I've never quite understood the expression. I've had to deal with people who wanted to put part of our system on AWS and another part on Azure to avoid "a single point of failure". That the two parts are required for the system to operate and thus the chances of the system being down would increase didn't seem to cross people's minds.
