Since the characteristic to current information systems is the dynamic and concurrent change of their configurations and scales with non-stop provision of their services, the system management should inevitably rely on autonomic computing. Since fault tolerance is the one of important system management issues, it should also be incorporated in autonomic computing environment. This paper argues what should be taken into consideration and what approach could be available to realize the fault tolerance in such environments.
