I'd like to think Engineering do a pretty good job at uptime for core

Wikipedia uptime is certianly much better these days than it was around
2005/6 when there were at least two websites dedicated to reporting its
status. Back then it wasn't uncommon to experience major slowdowns,
periods of non-responsiveness, extended read only periods and edits
failing (sometimes silently) due to (iirc) overloaded servers. I can't
remember the last time I saw anything like that, but it certainly wasn't

Btw it would be nice to have stats on uptime, or at least some assessment of the progress for the "stabilizing infrastructure" 5 years strategic goal. I couldn't find any recently, I asked both on mailing lists and on Meta.
