An Off-The-Shelf Scheme For Dependable Grid Systems Using Virtualization

Toshinori Takabatake
2008 Zenodo  
In this paper, an off-the-shelf scheme for dependable grid systems using virtualization techniques is proposed and its implementation is verified.  ...  The proposed approach using the virtualization techniques is to restart an application, e.g., the CA, if it has failed. The system can tolerate a failure or fault if it has occurred in the CA.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The author would like to thank Mr. Satoru Yamamoto, who was a member of the laboratory of the author, for his support on this work.  ...

Assurance Argument Elements for Off-the-Shelf, Complex Computational Hardware [chapter]

Rob Ashmore, James Sharp
2020 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Consequently, there is a need to identify evidence that would support a compelling assurance argument for the safe use of off-the-shelf, large scale, complex system-on-chip designs.  ...  To date, comparatively little attention has been given to the specialist computational hardware that is used, especially within embedded systems.  ...  This is a specific set of isolated hardware that is dedicated to fault handling [7] . In the case of off-the-shelf hardware, full details of any safety island are unlikely to be available.  ...

Approaches to Software Based Fault Tolerance - A Review

Goutam Kumar Saha
2005 Computer Science Journal of Moldova  
The aim of this paper is to cover past and present approaches to software implemented fault tolerance that rely on both software design diversity and on single but enhanced design.  ...  This paper presents a review work on various approaches to software based fault tolerance.  ...  A problem with the use of off-the-shelf software on dependable systems is that the system developers are not sure if the off-the-shelf components are reliable enough for the application [52] .  ...
