Kernel Security updates and reboots (Servers)

Just wondering what strategies other people are doing when it comes to the reboots required with the Kernel Security updates (Servers). This month alone there are many (3?) kernel updates that require rebooting even with livepatch which I’m using on a few systems - this makes for some late nights trying to get production systems rebooted without causing issues for the business.

I’m not complaining about the patches being released in a timely manner, it’s just ironic that we reboot our Linux systems more than Windows systems these days.

Any suggestions and/or how do Canonical actually handle this?

Cheers
Keith
