Fault Tolerant Computing

Fault Tolerant Computing is a sub-division of computer design and construction focused on building computer systems that are highly resistant to failure. Such systems typically have redundant and compartmentalized hardware system so that in the event of any hardware failure the system may either be 1) kept online or 2) be shut down gracefully.

Such systems are deployed for use in high-risk applications such as nuclear power plants, space exploration equipment such as shuttles and probes, and aircraft navigation systems; applications where failure would result in causalities, enormous financial losses, or both.
