Hi all,

Random query - running an important application balanced across 50 servers.

All servers built on same subnet.

Single point of failure right? Is there some technical jargon to be shared how I can explain this to the technical numpty telling its not?

Or am I wrong?

If I correctly understand you, you think that the point of failure is the one subnet? It all depends on how your network is constructed. If these servers, for example, are connected to one switch (or stack of switches), or if access to that subnet is just one route (or through one router interface), then you're right.
