Automatic Fall-over

Definition - What does Automatic Fall-over mean?

Automatic fall-over is a plan for automated systematic control and recovery in the event of system disaster, such as a total system, hard drive or server failure. Automatic fall-over is designed to maintain data integrity and application usability through a backup system or server.

Techopedia explains Automatic Fall-over

The purpose of an automatic fall-over plan is to reduce or eliminate costly down-time and to eliminate the possibility of a secondary failure during recovery. User input is minimized; ideally, users will not even realize a failure has occurred when the automatic fall-over plan is activated.

Automatic fall-over is often associated with content management and contingency planning.
