cold standby
Last modified: Wednesday, August 18, 2004 

(cōld stand´bī) (n.) A method of redundancy in which the secondary (i.e., backup) system is only called upon when the primary system fails. The system on cold standby receives scheduled data backups, but less frequently than a warm standby. Cold standby systems are used for non-critical applications or in cases where data is changed infrequently.

Also see hot standby and warm standby.
