Definitions for "Redundancy"
having two or more means of continuing to function should primary system fail
Refers to peripherals, computer systems and network devices that take on the processing or transmission load when other units fail.
Duplication of system components (e.g., hard drives), information (e.g., backup tapes, archived files), or personnel intended to increase the reliability of service and/or decrease the risk of information loss.
The quality or state of being redundant; superfluity; superabundance; excess.
That which is redundant or in excess; anything superfluous or superabundant.
the attribute of being superfluous and unneeded; "the use of industrial robots created redundancy among workers"
Dismissal from employment because the job no longer exists.
Leaving your employment because your employer no longer has work available for you to do. Redundancy can be voluntary where employees are offered the choice of leaving, or compulsory, where employees are dismissed.
the state of no longer being needed by an employer.
repeated data most often unnecessarily Relation – table or entity meaning a set of records
In total quality management, TQM, redundancy in quality or redundant quality means quality which exceeds the required quality level. Tolerances may be too accurate, for example, creating unnecessarily high costs of production.
repetition of messages to reduce the probability of errors in transmission
repetition of an act needlessly
re(d) [an intensifier] + undare 'surge, swell' unda 'wave'; ÂØ»y): 'Overflowing'; repetitive, using many more words than necessary; also called pleonasm, tautology.
In error correction schemes, storing the same data more than once or in more than one way so that the additional information can be used to reconstruct any data lost because of media imperfections or transmission errors. (7/96)
The addition of data that makes error checking and correction possible when associated with a set of primary data. Redundancy techniques allow the reconstruction of information when a portion of the data is erroneously transferred.
More than one copy of the same data.
In the study of language, redundancy is considered a vital feature of language. It shields a message from possible flaws in transmission (unclarity, ambiguity, noise). In this way, it increases the odds of predictability of a message's meaning.
When two genes can fulfil an equivalent function. Because of pleiotropy, redundancy is often partial, with two genes having overlapping rather than equivalent functions.
The provision of a product's input, control, and output functions through multiple modalities so as to maximize its ability to be used by people with disabilities.
Surplusage inserted in a pleading which may be rejected by the court without impairing the validity of what remains.

a needless use of words
a set of words in which the idea or information is repeated
Keywords:  outage, crash, recovery, faster, goes
The practice of keeping more hardware on hand than needed for normal operations, and keeping the same information "backed up" on each of them. This allows for faster and more complete recovery in the event of a crash, power outage, physical damage, etc. Redundancy can also apply to a company's Internet connection, so that if one Internet provider goes down, the servers can still be accessed from the Internet.
Having multiple occurrences of a component to maintain high availability.
the practice of storing more than one occurrence of data.
The presence of more than one identical item.
The storage of multiple copies of identical data.
The storage of multiple copies of identical instances of a thing (database, table, record, value).
UPS configuration in which one or several UPS units operate on stand-by, with no load or only a partial load, and can immediately back up a faulty UPS unit by no-break transfer of the load, carried out by a static switch.
More independent variables than constraints.
The capacity to switch from primary equipment to standby equipment automatically without affecting the process under control.

Keywords:  compression, fact, pictures, once, size
TV signal compression is based on the fact that all TV pictures contain redundant information; once digitised, signal size can be reduced by removing this redundant information.
Keywords:  firing, people
Firing people.
Keywords:  serving, purpose, useful
The state of serving no useful purpose.
