If your set up is such that you can survive an upgrade every 9 months,
Fedora is fine for servers.

With Fedora, you get benefits of the bleeding edge. Linux software in
general, even server software, is improving rapidly, and having your
software stack 12 months (or more) ahead of the competition is
valuable.

For servers, you can often do a full Fedora upgrade with yum and not
even have to reboot at the same time. That's officially unsupported,
but you can't get a support contract from Fedora anyway.
