Well, it's certainly not "no customers"... Timothy is referring to IMVU. Whether the customers are understanding or not is another issue. However, when we implemented this "cluster immune system", we had outages all of the time. But every single time, we took steps to prevent that class of failure from happening again, and now we deploy code to the cluster twenty times a day.

Well, I'm not against frequent deploys. I just found the article a bit light-hearted in tone - as if no testing at all was going on.

No matter how many classes of failures you have ironed out, in any reasonable complex system you will still regularly have regressions that are not caught by a quick "two eyes" check.
