[TOS] Textbook: development vs. production

So we had a brief outage today on TOS.  A little bit annoying, but not too 
much impact, since we're essentially in a development process.

Starting next week, we will be in "production".  Granted, we won't have 
many users initially, but it becomes possible that the loss of TOS will 
mean the loss of a core resource, in real time, to professors and 

TOS hasn't seen a ton of downtime, so I'm not super-worried, but I do 
think it's worth discussing.  What additional steps can we take to 
mitigate risks of TOS infrastructure downtime?
