Abstract

To improve the reliability of a system, we can add fault-tolerance mechanisms. This, however, leads to a rise of complexity that increases the probability of software faults being introduced. Hence, unless the process is handled carefully, adding fault tolerance may even lead to a less reliable system. As a way to deal with the inherently high level of complexity of fault-tolerant systems, some research groups have turned ...
