Single Point of Failure (SPOF)

A single point of failure (SPOF) is a potential risk posed by a flaw in the design, implementation or configuration of a circuit or system in which one fault or malfunction causes an entire system to stop operating.

In a data center or other information technology (IT) environment, a single point of failure can compromise the availability of workloads – or the entire data center – depending on the location and interdependencies involved in the failure.
