Here's a quick hot take: Not everything needs to be HA. Sometimes it's better to prioritize simple redeployments and DR, especially if it means less overall uptime dependencies in the stack.

@vwbusguy that's been my opinion since before Devops became a thing - one well-maintained machine is better than 5 half-assed piles of software that fall over every 20 days.

@vwbusguy Not sure if that's actually a hot take. At the end of the day, it's all about SLOs. If you have the option, use the easiest option to achieve your SLO with the tooling you are most comfortable with and the ability to measure your SLO compliance objectively.

If you do that, everyone wins :)
