Are you kidding me? Are you seriously saying that your data is not worth $79/node - list? Have a look at:

http://www.redhat.com/rhel/details/hpc/

If your cluster is not worth $79 per node, why are you bitching so loud? If you are a sysadmin on a production environment, you need to set up an environment that looks something like:

Dev -> QA -> Production

You need to roll updates into Dev and pound the Hell out of them with your specific workload. Then you roll those changes into QA and have your users do the same thing. Finally, after user acceptance, *then* you roll into Production.

If you bypass Dev and QA, I'm afraid I can't really be too terribly sympathetic.
