Vijay, your notion of complexity is well taken in the context of operational reality. The question is a matter of trade off in my opinion. Sure, every once in a while my phone doesn't give me a dial tone or just fastbusies.. Does that mean I will start praying to my favorite deity/deities for good weather and no wind so that I can start using smoke signals again? Any new technology has glitches, which are typically resolved over time. That's an operational reality, too. That's why there are precautions in place to prevent meltdowns, which start with testing and safety break-aways of your network to prevent meltdowns.. it's either time to come up with them or not participate in the risk. That's a choice you make, but not a thumbs up or thumbs down on the value or effectiveness of a given technology or architecture. They certainly influence each other to a degree, but they're not the only thing that matters. Risk is manageable.
