I high availability is not high reliability. I would rather have three
servers highly reliable highly capable than 10 servers with a pretty good
chance that one is reachable.

3 servers with a performance factor of 10 is more valuable to me than 10
servers with a performance factor of 3. Yes, I stand to loose more of my
capacity if one fails, but that is why I try to mitigate as many failure
modes as I can.
