NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Sometimes, architectural decisions lead you to incorporate infrastructure items that you can only afford one of, such as mainframes or search appliances. This is a terrible idea. It severely restricts testing and deployment flexibility. We strongly favor infrastructure you can easily set up and tear down. Singleton infrastructure belongs to misguided vendor-driven architectures of the past.
