Part of the Dependable Computing and Fault-Tolerant Systems book series (DEPENDABLECOMP, volume 3)


There have been many technological advances in the organization and construction of computing systems, and developments are still progressing at a rapid pace. Hardware developments are producing systems with ever decreasing cost and size, and with increasing power and complexity. Since computers are an inherent part of many aspects of present day life it is clear that these advances and developments will give added impetus to the utilization of computer systems in many different areas.
