im Rahmen seiner beabsichtigten Dissertation einen Vortrag mit dem Titel
Unmasking Fault Tolerance: Masking vs. Non-masking Fault-tolerant System
Der Vortrag findet im Roten Rittersaal, A4-2-221 statt.
Fault tolerance is not only important where robustness and reliability of an application or tool is of priority con-
cern, but also for the comfort of services of lesser importance like soft realtime applications where availability is
an issue. Hence, tremendous efforts are spent in order to design and build fault-tolerant applications and devices
that are competitive on the open market. Nevertheless, as devices and requirements become more and more com-
plex, it becomes even more challenging to retain a certain threshold of fault tolerance. On the other hand, new
objectives arise such as low energy consumption or service coverage, that even contradict to spending resources
on fault tolerance.
There are four sorts of fault-tolerant systems defined throughout literature: intolerant, fail-safe, non-masking and
