"High Availability" means that you are pushing toward 100% uptime for
your services.  You try to make sure that no one event can take you down.

"Production use" basically means that you are using the
software/hardware/whatever in a situation where you are relying on it. 
In other words, not in a development, testing, or other non-critical
application.  The best example of "Production use" is a company's main
website or mail server.
