Fault tolerance strategies
Published: December 16, 2009
Applies To: Forefront Client Security
Fault tolerance refers to the ability of a system to continue to function when part of the system fails. To create a fault-tolerant system, use preventive measures to minimize the possibility of a system failure and to minimize the impact of any disaster.
You can use the following strategies to improve the fault tolerance of your Client Security deployment:
Minimizing single points of failure
Using SQL Server log shipping
Using RAID configurations
Using power backup
This section provides more information about each of these strategies. You can apply these strategies individually or in combination. Because each strategy has a cost associated with it, it is important to examine the cost/benefit ratio for each before implementing it.
