DEFINITION: A disruption-tolerant network (DTN) is a network designed so that temporary or intermittent communications problems, limitations and anomalies have the least possible adverse impact. There are several aspects to the effective design of a DTN, including: The use of fault-tolerant methods and technologies. The quality of graceful degradation under adverse conditions or extreme traffic loads. The  …

Under the Hood of Your New Server
sponsored by Dell, Inc. and Microsoft
WHITE PAPER: Even though some network servers look very much like the standalone computers that fill your office, they play a very different role in your business than desktop PCs do, and therefore their design is very different under the hood. Take a tour of the components that give a server the power it needs to handle your tough workload.

FAULT TOLERANT DEFINITION (continued): …  ability to prevent or quickly recover from electronic attacks. Ability to function with minimal latency even when routes are ill-defined or unreliable.Fault-tolerant systems are designed so that if a component fails or a network route becomes unusable, a backup component, procedure or route can immediately take its place without loss of service. At the software level, an interface allows the administrator to continuously monitor network traffic at multiple points and locate problems immediately. In hardware, fault tolerance is achieved by component and subsystem redundancy.Graceful degradation …
