When I was dabbling with HA clustering (which was admittedly a long time
ago), there were environments with cold standby nodes (cold as in
"off"). If the hot node went down, the cluster management software
switched these standby nodes on, which booted normally then. In that
case, a small boot time would have been very appreciated. I'm not sure
if such scenarios are used nowadays.
