Zero Downtime Updates in Server Automation

Currently the release Updates in Server Automation need huge downtimes of productive Environment.

In modern Automation scenarios / environments with customer Self Service this is not state of the art.

Expectation is to have a solution where a clustered Server Automation Core could be updated without Service Restriction of the Mesh.

I'm have been asking with my colleagues different people in opsware, hp, hpe and microfocus scince nearly 10 years and its becomming more and more  important. We are not able to rollout new releases to a multimaster mesh because of the huge downtimes.Every release update has been a big challange even with pso guy's onside support.

There is a known zero-downtime upgrade procedure with HP/HPE/Micro Focus Professional Services IP; but it's a complex and long procedure, requires quite a lot of infrastructure (like all servers behing Satellites), some times is carried in parallel with OS upgrades and/or HW changes.

I agree should be a easier and faster way to achieve the platform upgrade
