Hardware redundancy is a great way of handling hardware
failures, as long as they don't have a common cause.
An over-voltage might take out several devices. Discs
have an uncanny tendency to fail close together.
Triple Modular Redundancy goes back to von Neumann, 1956
It's good at dealing with single transient errors (radiation hits part
of one device but not the others).
Independently developed versions of a software component
are as a rule developed by people who tend to think in the
same ways and make the same kinds of mistakes.
