In less than ten days I'll be taking part in the School Computing and Mathematical Sciences 20th internal research symposium at Liverpool John Moore's University's James Parson's Building.
It takes place on 26th - 27th March 2014, more information on my upcoming presentation and other research presentations during the symposium here - cms.livjm.ac.uk/PROTECT/?page_id=396
In the mean time here's my presentation from last year's symposium. I talk about the failover and round-robin models, which have been adopted en masse wherever there's a server that's depended upon and why SAR might be a better way to maintain dependable and available networks and domains. Rather than what we do now; exponentially creating more redundant paths (depending on how desperate we are) for reliable access to routers, gateways, clustered services and data in general.
