What exactly is "Fault Tolerance'?

By AstroTC ·
From what I have been reading, it is the capability of functioning despite damage or malfunction. I am currently doing a project to design a fairly large-scale network, I am very new to this when I showed my instructor my layout he said it was missing "fault tolerance but Im not too sure what exactly it is.

This conversation is currently closed to new comments.

But I'm sure you could have looked up a definition. How that applies to your network design is yours to decide.

If something were to malfunction, would it stop the whole process from working? This is called a 'single point of failure'. You prevent that from happening through redundancy and other methods, that as a whole define the term fault tolerance.
