Summary Plenty of research has been done for any cast service, but few research touches the fault-tolerant problem based on the best of our knowledge. In this paper, we propose and analyse a fault-tolerant model, called twin server model, for anycast communication to provide reliable and continuous anycast services. We select a twin server in an anycast group for a given anycast server, the primary server. If the twin server suspects that its primary server is dead, it will take the unfinished job(s) of its primary server. We propose two algorithms: the server failure detecting algorithm and the server failure broadcasting algorithm. We then analyse the performance change when a primary server fails using queue theory and obtain some interesting conclusions. At the end, we summary the paper and present the future work.
