The ideal model allows far greater fault tolerance, ease of administrative control, greater data protection and control, much improved performance, reduced or even no downtime.
The really amazing thing is that the extra up front costs for extra / high quality hardware are almost always amoritized in a fairly short amount of time with increased productivity and very little down time. Many case studies have shown amoritization against typical hardware purchasing styles within 2 years or less compared to old models.
