We consider optimal distributed decisions in distributed computer systems. We identify a Braess like paradox in which adding capacity to the system may degrade the performance of all users. Unlike the original Braess paradox, we show that this behavior occurs only in the case of finitely many users and not in the case of infinite number of users
