Abstract

Many systems in the telephone industry are now redundant systems. A redundant system is defined as any system that offers no single point of failure. The reason for redundant systems is to try to ensure that data and service are not lost. The problem that com- monly arises in redundant systems is how to keep the disks synchronized. There are certainly a number of ways to try to produce duplicate copies of data on disks to try to insure data is not lost. For the sake of this article it is assumed the redundant system must store to a hard disk (as opposed to memory or tape).
