Linux One of the problem with operating system updates is that you often need to reboot the system. While this is nothing but a minor nuisance for us desktop users, it's a bigger problem when it comes to servers. Ksplice is a technology that allows Linux kernel patches to be applied without actually restarting the kernel.

That is correct. What kind of service is so important that it needs to be always up, yet not important enough to justify a failover scheme?

Projects like this are nice, of course. But they aren't practical at all.
