This post serves as a collection of our notable uptimes – for several things:
- Physical servers
- VMs / Virtual Servers
- Application platforms that keep uptimes, such as Zope
We will also be posting notable uptimes as comments to the post so that you can get an idea of how we do things.
Good Example [Updated! March 18, 2010]
Here’s one of our primary webservers, running Debian, installed in 2005 prior to our adopting Virtualization across the board in our product line:
16:26:01 up 1534 days, 10 min, 7 users, load average: 0.16, 0.32, 1.04

Yes, that’s right – 4.2+ years.
One of our Physical VM hosts
Here’s our current uptime, just prior to our kernel upgrade which will force a reboot:
17:27:36 up 96 days, 18:36, 4 users, load average: 0.16, 0.26, 0.27
After this upgrade we’ll be on production/release post-SSH-key Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 LTS.
