Computer network design involves consideration of both fault tolerance and efficiency. In many settings these design issues are antithetic. We review work on using social networks for optimizing LAN networks. We consider vulnerabilities of highly centralized and highly decentralized servers and use evolutionary computing techniques to scale the social network optimization methods to enterprise level networks.
