Abstract:

Various methods of using redundancy for enhancing reliability of information systems are analyzed and compared. The mean time between failures is adopted as a single criterion of system reliability. Assumptions are system operation and failures permit describing the system by a simple uniform Markov chain with a finite number of states. The system states are determined by possible combinations of faulty and sound elements.
