System Fault Tolerance

System Fault Tolerance
   Abbreviated SFT. In Novell NetWare, a method of duplicating data on several hard disks so that if one disk fails, the data is still available from another disk.
   Several levels of hardware and software SFT are available in NetWare, with each level of redundancy decreasing the possibility of catastrophic data loss. For example, SFT I includes HotFix redirection, and SFT II adds disk duplexing and disk mirroring. SFT III uses duplicate servers so that all transactions are recorded on both; if one fails, the other can take over.
