High Availability and Fault Management in Objective Architecture Systems
At the heart of many real-time and near real-time distributed computing systems, such as radar, navigational, missile defense, and command and control, you find mission critical requirements. This designation demands continuous system availability even in the face of system faults. Lives are at stake and mission success is at risk. Standards-based high availability and computing resource management solutions with well defined functional boundaries and interfaces are gaining traction. This is seen in such Navy examples as Aegis Modernization, Littoral Combat Ship, Common Processing System, and more recently within the PEO-IWS Objective Architecture DoD Information Technology Standards Registry (DISR).
