  2. 2. Redundancy and Availability  “Redundancy refers to the use of multiple servers in a load-balanced environment for any of several purposes, such as to improve farm performance, to scale out to accommodate additional users, and to improve availability.”  “Availability is a more specialized concept that refers to a multiple-server environment that is designed to accept connections and operate normally even when one or more of the servers in the farm are not operational.” -
