I am holding a tutorial on Architectural Failures at SPA 2005 in the UK the week after next (see http://www.spaconference.org/content.html ) and am looking for any examples that I can use.
I have a couple where bad application distribution or poor availability design caused problems but was wondering if anyone had any experience of poorly architected systems that failed (not yours of course.. a friends!) that they could share with me.
Happy to chat on the phone for 10 mins to capture the essence if that is easier.
Is it possible to share the contents of this presentation and the case studies.
