Expected to Crash Often

Today I came across this page with some tips for NFS clusters (emphasis mine):

“The server side of NFS allows no real configuration for performance or reliability. Default asynchronous writes are not very risky unless you expect your disk servers to crash often.

Maybe the fact that the page is about redundant NFS clusters tells us that do expect the servers to crash often enough 😉
