I'm also impressed with your company's attention to fail-over behavior, so
that the failure of the "master" node does not stop updates cold, and so
that access configurations and pre/post commit operations don't have to be
mirrored with some handwritten, out of band operation.

Complete solutions are invaluable for sites that don't have a skilled local
admin who has the time and skill to build those up from scratch reliably.
