Summary of Design/Management Flaws

In many cases poor engineering decisions make system performance/availability impossible;

- Lack of knowledge and Ignorance of new technologies,
- Lack of testing,
- Misunderstanding of actual loads,
- Weak links in the design,
- Did not build what was specified,
- Did not consider pathological race conditions
