No Down Time

The Noema is designed to always be up and running. Individual components may be down, but the total, the Noema, stays available. In this mode of continuous operations things are evolving and changing constantly. There may be many versions of a component active at anyone time. Evolution of components, new feature introduction, and constant change are common, ongoing, activities.
