Using Server Clusterization to Establish Fault-Tolerant Internet Connectivity

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper discusses the issue of providing tolerance to hardware and software faults in Internet system as well as issues related to clusterization of servers. A replication scheme is presented, and a detailed dependability analysis of this scheme is performed. The proposed model was designed mainly for fault-tolerant internet system where many unrelated applications could compete for hardware and software resources, thereby exhibiting highly varying and dynamic system characteristics. A major feature of the model under consideration is to attempt the adaptive execution of redundant components for a required level of fault tolerance.
