Mention that 24x7 servers don't have a "window" in some cases, which means rollouts have to either be announced before-hand as non-regular downtime, or have to be done in such a manner that they don't interfere too much with a live database, or you have to work in a clustered environment where one server can be "down" and updated, and then the next. Etc.
