Fault Tolerant Systems
In the chapters that follow, the measures and mechanisms which can be implemented to support the four constituent phases of fault tolerance are illustrated by practical examples taken, in the main, from fault tolerant systems that were actually constructed and put into operation. In order to set the scene for subsequent discussion of these examples, this chapter provides an overview of several systems from which the majority of examples have been taken.
