About this book

Introduction

This textbook serves as an introduction to fault-tolerance, intended for upper-division undergraduate students, graduate-level students and practicing engineers in need of an overview of the field.  Readers will develop skills in modeling and evaluating fault-tolerant architectures in terms of reliability, availability and safety.  They will gain a thorough understanding of fault tolerant computers, including both the theory of how to design and evaluate them and the practical knowledge of achieving fault-tolerance in electronic, communication and software systems.  Coverage includes fault-tolerance techniques through hardware, software, information and time redundancy.  The content is designed to be highly accessible, including numerous examples and exercises.  Solutions and powerpoint slides are available for instructors.

 

·         Provides textbook coverage of the fundamental concepts of fault-tolerance;

·         Describes a variety of basic techniques for achieving fault-tolerance in electronic, communication and software systems;

·         Guides readers to develop skills in modeling and evaluating fault-tolerant architectures in terms of reliability, availability and safety;

·         Describes in detail sources of faults and means for their prevention and forecasting.
