Fault-Tolerant Hardware for Virtual Servers

As reported in this fault-tolerant article on Search Server Virtualization, vendors continue to push fault-tolerant hardware for server virtualization environments, despite the fact that virtualization architects have yet to migrate to FT hardware en masse.


Vendors continue to push fault-tolerant hardware for server virtualization but virtualization architects have yet to migrate.

"Fault-tolerant servers contain dual sets of hardware components -- such as memory modules and processor buses -- within one box and keep the two sides in sync within the same server chassis. The approach is analogous to the way clusters of multiple servers synchronously replicate data between nodes. If a component inside an FT server fails, its counterpart takes over and the server continues to run without having to fail workloads over to another host." /p>
