System Redundancy


Definition: System redundancy is the duplication of critical components of a system with the intention of increasing reliability of the system, usually in the case of a backup or fail-safe.

What This Means: Solutions often incur extra expenses to duplicate critical systems and sub-systems. Automated and quick manual recovery plans are often designed to ensure systems maintain a reliable status. Stringent hardware replacement agreements with hardware vendors are commonplace in this process.
