Be demanding

I could not have put it better myself:

Stop accepting anything less than long term stability from your applications. Run burn in tests for longer period of time. Stress test at full load for several days straight. Your application should be delivering the same performance with the same memory footprint after 5 days as it did on the first day. Anything else, consider it a high priority bug and fix it. Most importantly, instill a culture of expecting stability in your teams. Make it as important as delivering software that doesn’t crash.
