Building on Prior Success
After talking with the President of Ocper, Inc., we are to select the peer to peer networking system. The peer to peer networking system should be able to support the company’s new requirements. Peer to peer will allow the additional four servers and also allow the employees the capability to share files. The main objective that peer to peer will meet is helping the company save money with a minimum cost.
We a couple of ways to incorporating the four new servers to best accomplish the overall intent of the President. The first option is to place two servers at the main building and the other two servers in another location. Second option is to place three servers at the local building and have one large server at the backup location. Option number one sounds good but will not allow the speed that a company needs and wants. Another major factor with option one is the amount of data that can be stored will be least and that may cause a bigger expenses later. Options two will allow the speed and storage space that every company wants. Have the three servers on site and the large server at another location as a backup will accomplish all the company needs. This options will as allow upgrades at a lower cost if we get the right size larger server. Having three servers on site will allow employees to share multiple files at multiple times. The company will be in control of all future upgrades and can cut ties with the provider if you no longer want the services. Most of your IT support personal will located virtual and can conduct data migrations, IT issues and upgrades virtually.
One of Ocper, Inc., concerns is allowing employers to work remotely from home or other locations by Virtual Private Network (VPN). VPN allows those employees to work from home or other locations by giving access to the company server on a private…...

...Building Background Knowledge for Academic Achievement by Robert J. Marzano Table of Contents Chapter 1. The Importance of Background Knowledge According to the National Center for Education Statistics (2003), every day from September to June some 53.5 million students in the United States walk into classes that teach English, mathematics, science, history, and geography and face the sometimes daunting task of learning new content. Indeed, one of the nation's long-term goals as stated in the The National Education Goals Report: Building a Nation of Learners (National Education Goals Panel, 1991) is for U.S. students to master “challenging subject matter” in core subject areas (p. 4). Since that goal was articulated, national and state-level standards documents have identified the challenging subject matter alluded to by the goals panel. For example, in English, high school students are expected to know and be able to use standard conventions for citing various types of primary and secondary sources. In mathematics, they are expected to understand and use sigma notation and factorial representations. In science, they are expected to know how insulators, semiconductors, and superconductors respond to electric forces. In history, they are expected to understand how civilization developed in Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley. In geography, they are expected to understand how the spread of radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear accident has affected the present-day......

Building Construction

...residential buildings have more than tripled in the last decade compared to the previous decades (1994-2002: 33 deaths; 1983-1992: 9 deaths) (Brassal, Evans 2002). Are firefighters and other fire professionals missing the evidence needed to curve the potential for firefighter fatalities due to structural collapse? Structural collapses are not always the cause of death, but may have been contributing factors that lead to the cause of death. Can training, better building practices, pre-plans and changing structural building laws decrease the risk for fire fighters? Risk Analysis and concerns regarding the Sofa Super Store fire When the first arriving officer at scene arrives and performs a through walk around or “360” of the Sofa Super Fire Store Fire, he or she must take a “Risk Analysis” of the situation prior making a command decision to send crews into a structure. When reports of fatalities are report and investigated questions such as “Why were they (firefighters) fighting fire inside this structure and what were the potential benefits from the risks that were undertaken at this fire”. Most of the time, these questions are not asked or discussed prior to personnel entering a structure. The structure type must be determined along with other scene priorities. The Sofa Super Store building, was originally constructed as a grocery store during the 1950s, and was a complex of interconnected structures, each constructed in several phases over the years. The building had......

Success

...how the world works. Everyone achieves success by working for it. Success is a relative term that varies for everyone. Some might view success as fame and wealth, while others would say it’s all about happiness and love. However, whether it is being wealthy, famous, or happy nothing comes in packages; they have to be worked for. Education is the first pillar in being successful. It helps a person to think critically and analyse situation from different point of views. The second pillar to success is a successful career; this allows meeting new people and network with some of the brightest people. The last pillar of success is to be financially strong. Being financially strong helps a person be independent. In my opinion success is taking the right measures and working hard to achieve a high-level of education, a successful career, and being financially strong. Education is known as the key to success. The educated the person the more likely it is to be successful. Learning is power that at a different level than others. Education is not always about studying and reading books; it is taking your experience and applying what you have learned to live a more prosperous life. An article from Bloomberg called “Obama Tells Students That Hard Work in School Pays Off for Future Success” quotes Obama saying “Excelling, whether it’s in school or in life, isn’t mainly about being smarter than everybody else, that’s not really the secret to success. It’s about working harder than......

...Building on Prior Success As a new employee with Ocper Inc, with no IT person in place, I sent up a new IT program meeting the needs of the company and the requests of the president of Ocper. Some of the changes I suggested were an upgrade their PC’s to an Ethernet network which will add more speed and stability to their network. I also proposed they upgrade their network to a scalable distributed backbone network centralized around a Cisco Small Business 300 Series Managed Switch SF300-24 (24 ports) at a cost of $224.99 (Networking Design, 2012). The one large item I am proposed to change in their network is the purchase of one (1) Dell Power Edge T310 Server at $3,643.00. This server would suffice what their work is now but it is also something they can grow into (Networking Design, 2012). The Power Edge T310 includes the following: Hard Drives 500GB 7.2K RPM SATA 3.5in Cabled Hard Drive plus one (1) 1TB 7.2K RPM SATA 3.5in Cabled Hard Drive, Power Supply, Non-Redundant, 375W, On-Board Dual Gigabit Network Adapter, DVD-ROM, Internal, 16XDVD, Keyboard and Optical Mouse, USB, Black, English, electronic System Documentation and Open Manage DVD Kit, Power Cord, NEMA 5-15P to C13, wall plug, 10 feet, RD1000, Int SATA Drive w/Cable (Purchase Media separately), Backup Exec 2012 Small Business Edition Agent for Windows 1 yr Maint, Media: QTY 2, Removable Hard Disk Cartridge for RD1000, 640GB Native, and Hardware Support (Networking Design, 2012).

...Adding Servers 2 The client/server network that you have now converted over to will benefit from Windows Server; I suggest either the 2003 or 2008 version. Windows Server 2003 is older but is still very reliable for the following reasons; “easy to deploy/manage/ and use, secure connected infrastructure, enterprise-class reliability/availability/scalability/ and performance, lower TCO through consolidation and the latest technology, create dynamic intranet and internet web sites, fastest development with integrated application server, work smarter by turning your file server into a powerful collaboration server, automate operations with script-based and policy-based management tools, increase document protection and availability via intelligent file storage, easy to find/share/ and reuse XML web services” (Microsoft Product Information, 2013). Windows Server 2003 is still great and used today but, 2008 is and newer version with added enhancements to its’ older 2003 version. Its’ enhances are “security, reliability, support for remote clients, and performance” (Dean, 2010). Windows 2008 offers a few different editions and I think the standard edition is all you need because it will allow for the data sharing your business needs and it will support your remote services. To incorporate your new servers into your network we have to” determine your networks IP addressing method, verify the hardware requirements, verify that your software is up-to-date, add...

Analysis and Synthesis of Prior Research

...Analysis and Synthesis of Prior Research Analysis and Synthesis of Prior Research The companies that efficiently solve their projects issues and portfolio concerns will differentiate themselves from their competition. The projects that companies work to complete with the many different project methodologies demonstrate where the business is now, and the portfolio of projects of the organization demonstrate where the organization is headed. To effectively manage the tremendous number of projects that leaders face today in their organizations, they look to methods and processes that aid them in effectively managing a group of projects. The method used to help in this endeavor is Portfolio Project Management (PPM). Portfolio Management Methodologies According to Project Management Institute’s 2012 Pulse of the Profession In-Depth Report there is a clear trend based on their annual global study of more than 1000 project, program and portfolio managers. Over half of the companies reported an increase in their use of portfolio management as a means of effectively dealing with organizational strategy based on portfolio management (PMI, 2012). Moreover, the results of the study determined that 62% of projects that were concluded based on the effective use of portfolio management methodologies met or exceeded their expected return on investment (PMI, 2012). Notwithstanding the quantifiable benefits of portfolio management, the study uncovered that relatively few businesses......

...The best way for employees to remotely access Ocper Inc. network would be through utilizing mobile virtual private network. Mobile VPN setting functions efficiently in situations where the endpoint VPN contains multiple access points. The mobile network can also be accessed using cellular devices carrying data between several Wi-Fi access points. These individuals could utilize modern I-phones, with capability to access VPN connections, as the network connection enables seamless roaming between networks through utilizing wireless connections. The advantage of utilizing this connection remains the ability for the network to connect between different IP addresses without losing information contained in other applications. The mobile VPN allows users to maintain several applications continuously open. While performing this function, the network also allows passing of data, securely over public networks. This capability would immensely assist employees Ocper Inc to access the network continually from several remote locations. Within office settings, however, the Virtual Private Network could be accessed through the conventional connection. This connection presents numerous limitations, making connections insecure when establishing remote connections. When the network becomes interrupted, information could be lost or computing devices could crash (Hallberg, 2009). This network connection, therefore, becomes limited to desktop computers and immobile computing devices. The mobile......

This has made it quite imperative for contracting parties to analyse project delays for purposes of making right decisions on potential time and/or cost compensation claims. Over the years, existing delay analysis techniques (DATs) for aiding this decision-making have been helpful but have not succeeded in curbing the high incidence of disputes associated with delay claims resolutions. A major source of the disputes lies with the limitations and capabilities of the techniques in their practical use. Developing a good knowledge of these aspects of the techniques is of paramount importance in understanding the real problematic issues involved and their improvement needs. This paper seeks to develop such knowledge and understanding (as part of a wider research work) via: an evaluation of the most common DATs based on a case......

Do the same thing with the other red Roof piece, only have the piece face in the same direction as the other red Roof piece, leave four white dots showing on the end and have the red Roof piece cover two of the dots on the parallel yellow piece. Continue this until you complete your kit or until you have 20 steps. (Note to facilitators: As you develop this list, you should simultaneously construct your Standard Model so that it is available for side-by-side comparison at the end of the exercise. Continue building your list based on the specific kits that you purchased or the general supply of LEGO blocks -- you can purchase large tubs of them relatively inexpensively). Present the exercise in a dry and straightforward manner. At the end of the exercise (and you can stop anytime prior to completion), ask participants to discuss what happened to their team and in the activity. You can also compare the finished products to that of a pre-assembled Standard Model to make the point of how difficult things can be even with a straightforward task when the vision is unclear. Jo Clarke and Darin Ulmer both had somewhat similar suggestions. Debriefing questions might include: Was there any pressure to perform? How did pressure to perform show itself? What was positive?

Building on Prior Success

...Building on Prior Success By: Jessica Spiegel CIS 175- Intro to Networking Instructor: Ashiq Waheed May 29, 2012 I would have to say I would encourage the President to go ahead with the original set-up that I had suggested. That would be a client/server-based network. The advantage of a client/client/server-based network is that the data files that will be used by all of the users are stored on the one server. Which gives you a central point to setup permissions on the data files, and it will give a central point from which to back up all the data in case data loss should occur. I would recommend they switch to a twisted pair wiring because there are several advantages for the use of twisted pair cabling. It is very flexible to make it very easy to work with. It is also less expensive than coax cable. The reason why twisted pair cable has become so popular is because networking protocols and standards were designed to support twisted pair wiring. There are a few disadvantages such as the casing; the sheath around the twisted pair networking cabling that is relatively thin. It doesn’t have a second insulator like coax and it is a bit more susceptible to electromagnetic interference, and twisted pair is a bit more susceptible to eavesdropping. A virtual private network (VPN) is a private network that interconnects remote (and often geographically separate) networks through primarily public communication infrastructures such as the Internet. VPNs provide security......

...Assignment 2: Building on Prior Success Prof. Anthony Stevens CIS 175 – Introduction to Networking May 26, 2012 A nеtwоrk operating system (NOS) is the software that runs on a server and enables the server to manage data, users, groups, security, applications, and other networking functions. The primary reason for using networks is to enable clients to communicate and share resources efficiently. Most networks rely on server that exceeds the minimum hardware requirements suggested by the software vendor. To determine the optimal hardware for your servers, be sure to ask the following questions: • What kinds of applications will run on the server? • How many clients will connect to the server? • How much storage space will each user need? • How much downtime, if any, is acceptable? • What can the organization afford? Out of these questions the first one is the most important. For example, use can purchase an inexpensive, low-end server that runs Linux adequately and suffices for resource sharing and simple application services. However, to perform more advanced functions and run resources-intensive applications on your network, you would need to invest in a server that has significantly more processing power and memory. Every application comes with different processor, RAM, and storage requirements. Explain what network operating system you would......
