Lucent Unveils Software-Implemented Fault Tolerance for NT

Lucent Technologies announced the availability of Software-implemented Fault Tolerance (SwiFT) for Windows NT, a collection of software components that adds fault-tolerant capabilities to applications implemented on Windows NT systems. SwiFT will be offered by Lucent's (www.lucent.com) Software Solutions Group (SSG) and will be available through a network of value added resellers (VARs).

SwiFT provides fault tolerance components for high availability and data consistency, including automatic error detection and recovery; checkpointing/message-logging; event logging and replay; and data replications. Components can be integrated into existing commercial or in-house applications to enhance a system's fault tolerance and availability.

SwiFT's components address cold and warm replication management schemes to handle both client and server error recoveries. Additionally, SwiFT detects hangs and failures resulting from system interruptions and can perform checkpointing of process states and the replication of files. - Isaac Slepner
