Resilience (network)


Resilience (network)

In computer networking: “Resilience is the ability to provide and maintain an acceptable level of service in the face of faults and challenges to normal operation.” [The [http://wiki.ittc.ku.edu/resilinets_wiki/index.php/Definitions#Resilience ResiliNets] Research Initiative definition of resilience.]

These services include:
* supporting distributed processing
* supporting networked storage
* maintaining service of communication services such as
** video conferencing
** instant messaging
** online collaboration
* access to applications and data as needed

Note that resilience is a superset of survivability. [Abdul Jabbar Mohammad, David Hutchison, and James P.G. Sterbenz" [http://www.ittc.ku.edu/resilinets/papers/Mohammad-Hutchison-Sterbenz-2006.pdf Poster: Towards Quantifying Metrics for Resilient and Survivable Networks] ", "14th IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols (ICNP 2006)", Santa Barbara, California, USA, November 2006]
