If you’re in I.T., you’ll be familiar with daft ideas that senior management come up with. I’m still puzzling this one over:
1) Company A decides to reduce exposure to SPOF (Single Point of Failure) by doubling up on servers using clusters etc.
2) Company A decides it’s a good idea to reduce costs by placing as many applications on one machine using VMWare, containers and shared database servers.
I’m quite certain these two aims cancel each other out very neatly. It’s a good company A doesn’t exist. Surely no one would be that daft right?!
