...Unit 2. Lab 1: Cloud Computing Research With Amazon, you get anywhere between 5GB and 1TB depending upon how much you’d like to pay for the privilege. Amazon passes on to you the financial benefits of Amazon’s scale. You pay a very low rate for the compute capacity you actually consume. To use Amazon EC2, you simply: * Select a pre-configured, templated Amazon Machine Image (AMI) to get up and running immediately. Or create an AMI containing your applications, libraries, data, and associated configuration settings. * Configure security and network access on your Amazon EC2 instance. * Choose which instance type(s) you want, then start, terminate, and monitor as many instances of your AMI as needed, using the web service APIs or the variety of management tools provided. * Determine whether you want to run in multiple locations, utilize static IP endpoints, or attach persistent block storage to your instances. * Pay only for the resources that you actually consume, like instance-hours or data transfer. With Google, it’s a little more complicated. There didn't used to be a single locker but now the Big G has taken care of that one with the launch of the Google Drive. You get 5GB of space plus 1GB of Picasa storage for free along with any space in your Docs and Gmail section. There's an apparent maximum storage space on the Google Drive itself up to 100GB but you can rent more space from Google if you have a Google Apps account up to a total of 16TB. On...

...Unit 2 Lab The five characteristics of cloud computing as defined by the NIST is as follows, on demand self-service, broad network access, resource pooling, rapid elasticity, and measured service. On demand self-service is defined as a service provided by cloud computing vendors that enables the provision of cloud resources on demand whenever they’re required. Broad network access is defined as a private cloud network operated within a company’s firewall that are available for access from a wide range of devices such as tablets, PC’s, Mac’s and smartphones. These resources are accessible from a wide range of locations that offer online access. Resource pooling is defined as a situation in which providers serve multiple clients, and customers with provisional and scalable services. These services can be adjusted to suit each client’s needs without any changes being apparent to the client or end user. Rapid elasticity is defined as the ability to provide scalable services. Measured service is defined as aspects of cloud service that are controlled and monitored by the cloud provider. Rackspace offers many options for cloud computing. You can build your own account which you would manage or you can get one for a flat fee an account that Rackspace will manage for you.

Nt1430 Unit 2 Discuss

...The Second Extended File System (EXT2) file system is a replacement of the Extended File System (EXT). The file system was created by Rémy Card in 1993. EXT2 was the default file system for Linux until EXT3 came along. EXT2 still is a favored file system for Flash and USB drives due the lack of journaling. Journaling requires more writes to the storage unit and can be slow on these external devices. The Flash and USB drives have a limited number of write cycles. The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) is a reference describing the conventions used for the layout of a UNIX system. It has been made popular by its use in Linux distributions, but it is used by other UNIX variants as well. The Linux Standard Base (LSB) refers to it as a standard. In the FHS all files and directories appear under the root directory "/", even if they are stored on different physical or virtual devices. Note however that some of these directories may or may not be present on a Unix system depending on whether certain subsystems, such as the X Window System, are installed. The Linux Standard Base (LSB) is a joint project by several Linux distributions under the organizational structure of the Linux Foundation to standardize the software system structure, including the filesystem hierarchy used in the GNU/Linux operating system. When targeting Linux as a platform, application developers want to have some assurance that the code they write on one Linux distribution will run on other Linux......

MAN Metropolitan Area network is a computer network in which two or more computers or communicating devices or networks which are geographically separated but in same metropolitan city and are connected to each other are said to be connected on MAN. PAN personal area network is a computer network used for data transmission among devices such as computers, telephones and personal digital assistants. WAN A wide area network (WAN) is a computer network that spans a relatively large geographical area and consists of two or more interconnected local area networks (LANs). The classification metric used here Exercise 2.3.2 Network Topology is the arrangement of the various elements (links, nodes, etc.) of a computer network. Essentially, it is the topological structure of a network, and may be depicted physically or logically. The metric used to define networks by topology is what clients they are using and how they are using them. A wide area network is larger than a metropolitan network for example.

Dependability means reliable, worthy of trust, and that you can be counted on no matter what. When I say that I am going to do something you can consider it done. My friends and family know that they can depend on me .Responsibility means to be accountable for something within my power. When I was in the military I was in charge of a number of soldiers. It was my job to keep them as safe as possible and assure that they had what they needed to get the job done. I was taught to pay my debts no matter how long it takes. Attitude is a feeling in regards to a person or thing. Thanks to my time in the military I was taught to have a positive can do attitude. All through my life I have always had a matter of fact attitude, tell it like it is whether you like it or not. Discipline is training to act in accordance with rules; drill. In basic training we did the same drills over and over again till we were proficient at it. I was always very disciplined in carrying out my job and my orders. Respect is esteem for a sense of the worth or excellence of a person. I was raised by my grandmother and she taught me respect;” yes mam, no mam” and if we didn’t she would not hesitate to smack me.
