    i think they will find out it is easy to talk,
    these requirements are generally drafted without input from anyone who can actually do it.

    the pattern when this happens is someone who claims to be able to do it is hired, starts planning out hw/sw, ie, to buy the solution,
    buys lots of expensive products hw & sw only to find out later that vendors expensive claims,

    I am not aware of a true 24hr requirement
    every one I have looked at was really an international market made up of distinct regions
    North/Central/South America, Europe/Africa, & Asia

    which meant that each region could get a separatee database,
    which meant that you really did have a maintenance window

    but this was only after much arguing with dumb nuts who liked to talk 7x24
