Samantha Walsh English 101 Ms. Clement 18 February 2013 Failure Nobody ever wants to fail. When people think of “failure”, it usually is negative.

The definition of failure is “an act or instance of failing or proving unsuccessful; lack of success”. Failure is something people never intend to do but end up doing because they don’t work hard enough for what they desire. When people fail at something they have two options: quit what they’re doing and give up, or work even harder so they can reach success. Everyone in life will fail at some point. People cannot let one failure stop them from reaching their goals. When a person fails they should...

to understand that no distributed system is ever safe from any failures. No matter how fault tolerant a system is prepared, there is no such thing as a complete failure-proof system. A constant stream of problems will always arise and taking the necessary precautions and having strong problem solving skills are essential to the success of improving a distributed system from any type of failure. We will discuss four types of failures that may occur within a distributed system and discuss the proper...

It is very often and natural that...
