There is a Fedora LTS. It's called RHEL or CentOS.

Or maybe Fedora is not a suitable system for production use. Think about
it: updating all your servers (and in the case of Wikipedia there must be
hundreds) each year ?

Do you know what system the Fedora Infrastructure is using ? At least for
Fedora People, that's CentOS, not Fedora (and the contrary would be really
surprising).
