Rebooting servers hurts you and your customers. It’s often done during off-peak hours (usually at night) when servers process fewer transactions, but even rebooting at this time costs thousands in downtime. One server reboot can take from several minutes to over an hour depending on the configuration, and it can take additional time for services to synchronize. As a matter of fact, 25% of organizations report that downtime costs them between $300,000 and $400,000 for every hour servers are unavailable. Downtime is avoidable and reboots due to patching can be completely eliminated.
