In general terms, reliability is used to measure the ability of a system or a solution to function without interruptions. From a network perspective, the overall network can be said to be reliable if it is resilient enough to recover quickly so that faults are transparent to users and network applications. The most common measurement of reliability is MTBF. Factors that influence reliability include the following:
Redundancy is also commonly referred to as fault tolerance. The primary goal of redundancy is to eliminate single points of failure within the . . .
