Software architects can learn a lot from this story and apply this unfortunate event to the design of software architecture. Trying to fulfill each and every requirement (as with the Vasa) creates an unstable architecture that essentially accomplishes nothing well. A good example of a tradeoff is the requirement to make a service-oriented architecture (SOA) perform as well as a point-topoint solution. Doing so usually requires you to bypass the various levels of abstraction created by an SOA approach, thereby creating an architecture that looks something like what you would typically order at your local Italian restaurant.

We know good and well that you don’t really need extravagances like power supplies, so long as there’s a sufficient supply of hamster wheels and cheap interns in the data center. So instead of saying, “Yes. We do,” we say something like, “Well, you could do without a second server, provided you’re willing to accept downtime for routine maintenance and whenever a parity bit flips, causing a crash, but if we get error-checking parity memory then we get around that, so we just have to worry about the operating system crashing, which it does about every three-point-nine days, so we’ll have to do nightly restart.
