Is swap really needed when RAM's aplenty

I'll probably have a new server with 16 gigs of RAM on the way, soon.

With this amount of RAM being sufficient, do I really need a swap partition 
set up? I do understand that a swap partition is needed for hibernation, but 
this server does not need to hibernate.
