Fault-Tolerant File Storage

      No Comments on Fault-Tolerant File Storage

Tech Review:

"Because [Microsoft Research’s] Farsite stores copies of a user’s files on multiple machines, that also makes it more network fault tolerant than a centralized server system. If there is a network fault that blocks access to one machine where the user’s files are stored, the odds are that another machine with the same files remains accessible. The files also remain accessible if some users turn off their machines at night."
