Extract: Three popular server level hard drives, in my opinion, come from Seagate, each at varying storage densities and performance. The first is a high performance low capacity hard drive, the Cheetah 15K Hard Drive; the second is the Constellation ES Hard Drive; and the third is the Savvio 10K Hard Drive (Seagate Technology LLC, 2012). All three hard drives are server level, meaning they provide a mix of high capacity and high performance. However, each provides the mix at differing levels.
Extract: The external hard drive offers the fastest speed, the most portability, and the most mediums under which data can be transferred. Although I did not place it on the comparison chart, as I wanted to keep the networking side pure, an external hard drive could be setup via a network connection, as well. As such, unless the user desperately needs to access the application functions of software installed previously, the external hard drive is the best option.
Extract: In the beginning was the words, and the words were punched into paper, and the paper turned into cards, which eventually became programs. The only way these programs could be linked together was via means of programmatically storing data and then referencing that stored data in the next application chain. However in 1972 a man by the name of Doug Mcllroy developed the idea of pipelining data (Bergen, NA).
Extract: When doing this assignment, I realized I had disabled event logging/viewing on my system as my machine is built for performance gaming. As such, I needed to re-enable the event logging services. However, this ended up being nowhere near as simple as one would imagine. This, in itself, is evidence of the usefulness of event logs.
Extract: Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is “a set of open protocols used to access centrally stored information over a network,” and “runs on a layer above the TCP/IP stack” (Red Hat, Inc., 2011) (Mcirosoft Corporation, 2011). The use of directory structures in computer networking was a natural extension of the telephone directory structure which already existed when networking first began. LDAP’s strengths are many, and are what keep it in service to this day. However, it does have its weaknesses, as well.
