I don't see the issue, surely after 125+ years the technology is mature enough? I haven't come accross generators that use the latest "clean" technology. On the small petrol generator's side, Honda's OHV engines use decades old designs but are bulletproof. Which should be the primary goal imho.
Oh redundancy, fail overs,... yeah we've seen the back of those on Azure for quite some time now.
