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.

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.
