Yes, as long as you're confident that there won't be a kernel
bug/regression causing a lockup while the server is under severe
memory pressure while doing lots of fsync's, file creations, renames,
etc. And as long as your 100% confident that UPS's will never fail,
janitors will never accidentally hit the Emergency Power Office
switch, and so on.
