comment The difference between desktop-series HDD drives and server-series
Wondering what the manufacturers' policies about planned obsolescence are regarding their enterprise and consumer products. Might go either way - businesses are more willing to replace hardware and tend to design for redundancy anyways, so why not have enterprise hardware fail more often ?

Good point there with timestamps, especially in databases. Applications relying on timestamps for sorting or people relying on timestamps might cause some headaches.

well, the only way for me is to contact my provider, as I am not in control of the multi-customer vserver host.

Yeah, I was thinking Kerberos and hardware token generators such as RSA SecurID as well. Logs are a good point, although not a directly critical one (at least before Murphy's Law strikes again). I use NTP for my servers except for a virtual server where only the hoster can set the system time, and that same vserver is off-time about 6 minutes right now, which is why I am pondering about this issue right now.
