When A Server Crashes It Sucks

No matter what kind of server your on be it a web server, media server, or game server when they crash it royally sucks... sometimes its nothing more than needing a simple restart and other times it can be rather costly when you have to replace the server hardware.

I had a web server crash about a week ago and it was nothing wrong with it, it was not under a heavy load, or really even being used so I just shut it down and restarted it and its been working fine... but that does not bother me as much as the World of Warcraft servers crashing with out warning! A company the size of Blizzard should never go off line when the money they make even on maintenance days there should be backup servers in place to avoid any shut down and only a rolling restart when the main servers are done and patch the backups.
