ITEC 4203 - Fault-Tolerant Systems♦


(5 cr.) Businesses rely on stable, secure systems to run their organizational operations. If a system is disrupted or encounters problems, it may result in loss of money, time, or customer faith. Effective data center operation helps to provide assurance that the integrity and functionality of a system is at low risk of disruption or threat. Students in this course explore the study and application of the principles of fault-tolerant systems (failsafe) and networks, which are used to ensure systems continue to operate appropriately, even if one or more components fail. They learn about a variety of topics, including design; modeling; analysis; and integration of hardware, software, and redundancy techniques to achieve dependable systems. Students also examine performance and reliability evaluation techniques, system diagnosis, disaster recovery planning, backup strategies for data and hardware, virus monitoring, and associated security and administration issues.
  (Prerequisite(s): ITEC 2020 and ITEC 4020.)
