(Possible) Shifts in Zero Downtime Mentality

Steve Jones notices a trend:

The last year, however, has had more people looking to implement database DevOps and speed up their development, but not a lot of questions or demands for zero downtime during these deployments. I find that interesting as the world depends more and more on computer systems, and the customer base for many organizations may demand access to the systems at any hour of the day or night.

However, it doesn’t seem that as many people are concerned about small moments of downtime.

My ego would like to tell people that it’s probably because everybody read my post about how zero downtime isn’t really a thing.

Ego aside, it is pretty interesting that Steve’s not finding as much push for minimal downtime. Steve does include a few conjectures as to why it may be so.
