Title: Engineering Fault-Tolerant Distributed Computing Systems
Authors: Babaoglu, Ozalp
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: May-1986
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: We view the design of fault-tolerant computing systems as an engineering endeavor. As such, this activity requires understanding the theoretical limitations and the scope of the feasible designs. We survey the impact that various environment characteristics and design choices have on the resultant system properties. We propose a single metric - the system reliability - as an appropriate measure for exploring tradeoffs among a potentially-large design space.
