This is a DB server for a 24x7 service.  Maintenance involves moving  
the DB master server to one of the replicas, and this involves  
downtime, so we like to do it as infrequently as possible.  Also, it  
is not exposed to the internet at large, and runs on a closed private  
network, so remote and local attacks are not a major concern.
