Distributed systems consist of several hardware and software components connected together which may fail eventually. Therefore, the system should be designed with the proper fault tolerance technique, so that in case of fault the system would be able to recover from the failure without any loss of service. Fault may occur due to various reasons like communication failure, resources or hardware failure, failure due to fault in process, software errors etc. Any of these faults may result the system into faulty environment. The system in faulty environment may not perform the task as expected and will result in faulty output or no output. This paper attempts to introduce fault, fault tolerance and fault tolerance techniques in detail with the help of previous research in the field of fault tolerance in distributed system.
