Erlang begins and ends with Fault Tolerance.
Fault Tolerance is - formally! - baked into the very genes of Erlang/OTP - something that ends up being amazingly useful when you are building any kind of system.  Remember, your clients (and co-workers!) will find new ways to break things, ways that you could never have imagined in your wildest dreams.
