Automatic fall-over is a term associated with content management and contingency planning for system disaster and recovery. It is an automated process where in case of a system or server failure, the control of data and applications will “automatically fall over” to a secondary system or server. Automatic fall over procedures results in less costly downtime while eliminating the possibility of inducing system failure during recovery, and usually require very little user input.
