    Explore YugabyteDB fault tolerance on local database cluster

    YugabyteDB can automatically handle failures and therefore provides high availability . You will create YSQL tables with a replication factor (RF) of 3 that allows a fault tolerance of 1. This means the cluster will remain available for both reads and writes even if one node fails. However, if another node fails bringing the number of failures to two, then writes will become unavailable on the cluster in order to preserve data consistency.

    In this lesson we will see how fault tolerance is tested by using workload sample app and by stopping nodes in the local cluster.
