Highly-decoupled thread level redundancy
This dissertation introduces a highly decoupled level redundant (TLR) architecture that provides a very high level of error covera g without unduly impacting performance for both parallel and single threaded workloads.
A Survey of Fault Tolerant Computer Architecture and its Evaluation
In striving to design highly reliable, highly available computers, two basic strategies have been employed: increasing the reliability throug-h advances in component technology; and designing
