Fault tolerance in distributed file systems will be investigated by analyzing recovery techniques and concepts implemented within the following models of distributed systems: pool-processor model and user-server model. The research presented provides an overview of fault tolerance characteristics and mechanisms within current implementations and summarizes future directions for fault tolerant distributed file systems.
