I don’t know why, but I keep stumbling on this maintenance pages (see here for Bloglines or Flickr for example). This is something that I do not understand. With the “do no evil” empire’s money behind it (=Google), or as a matter of fact with any well planned web site architecture, no site should ever be down right?
Isn’t it a matter of having a proper web server architecture, with a completently redundant system: update partA while part B is up, then bring up the update partA, while part B gets updated (using load balancing systems like Alteon?)? Internet architecture experts, help me out here.
