If I was running arch because I wanted greater control or a more
specific setup, I would certainly either use something like ideally a
CARP firewall or if not possible, taking the performance and
secuity hit of virtual machines to enable fallover to a backup
webserver or alternatively test updates on a test machine before

You should do this on Debian or any server but it will be less of an
issue and so may or may not justify the extra effort/expense?.

In short, arch will likely be better but Debian will almost certainly be
more carefree.

My preference is OpenBSD.


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
