It is smart, but I don't think its very sad.

If you subscribe to ITIL or Visible Operations ideal, you probably believe that 80% of all IT related outages are self-inflicted due to change.

So for 80% of all IT outages, it does make sense to have a strategy where it is cheaper to rebuild(revert the change) than to repair.

But for the other 20%, it does make sense to investigate further. A virtualization strategy where you could redeploy the offending server while saving the old one out of service for investigation seems ideal.

I agree with investigation in principal, but the blog post seems quite sensational and misleading.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.

Working...
