Fix, forget, or forge a new path?
As Infrastructure operators we're exposed to a lot of plumbing and not a lot of porcelain. Worse, because our concerns are often esoteric (in the eyes of application developers) we have to fix our own pipes too. Often this leads to the "homeowners dilemma"... Making the call of when to patch things up, when to rip out the pipes, and when to abandon gas lamps for electricity.
We outline a number of aging pipes, proposed (and implemented) solutions, and ideas for dragging our systems into the future.
