Redundancy is an essential mechanism for fault-tolerance, and yet, it inherently leads to overheads. This prompts an obvious question: how much resource ought to be provisioned in order to account for such overheads? As obvious as the question itself is, a good response is illusive. Provisioning in excess would cause wastage or under-utilization of capacity… CONTINUE READING
