Question 100% up time?

Hey everyone,

I'm new here and just wanted to say hi to everyone. I just read this article regarding network administration job responsibilities (http://www.jobs.net/Article/CB-23-Talent-Network-IT-Is-100-Uptime-100-Possible-The-Realities-of-Network-and-Systems-Administration/) and I wondered if anyone can attest to some of the claims made. What are the biggest problems you deal with as an administrator?

priorities, user requests

Reddit - Sysadmin

100% uptime is possible and more prelevant in online businesses. you could research how online gambling sites maintain their systems. i'd imagine they pay a boat load in infrastructure to create truly redundant systems.
