Design interactions in a distributed system to mitigate or withstand failures - Reliability Pillar

Design interactions in a distributed system to mitigate or withstand failures

Distributed systems rely on communications networks to interconnect components (such as servers or services). Your workload must operate reliably despite data loss or latency over these networks. Components of the distributed system must operate in a way that does not negatively impact other components or the workload. These best practices enable workloads to withstand stresses or failures, more quickly recover from them, and mitigate the impact of such impairments. The result is improved mean time to recovery (MTTR).

These best practices prevent failures and improve mean time between failures (MTBF).
