Fault-Tolerant Components on AWS

November 15, 2019

Fault-tolerance is the ability for a system to remain in operation even if some of the components used to build the system fail. Even with very conservative assumptions, a busy e-commerce site may lose thousands of dollars for every minute it is unavailable. This is just one reason why businesses and organizations strive to develop software systems that can survive faults. Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides a platform that is ideally suited for building fault-tolerant software systems. The AWS platform enables you to build fault-tolerant systems that operate with a minimal amount of human interaction and up-front financial investment.
