Network administrators may also be required to secure the network; this task may be accomplished in conjunction with other IT personnel such as systems administrators. High-level network administration positions, sometimes referred to as network architects or network engineers, are often responsible for designing networks that meet the performance and capacity needs of an organizationSystems Administrator?Systems administrators are accountable for the installation and maintenance of the resources on that network. The systems administrator will, at a minimum, be required to install and configure operating systems on the organization's machines, install new hardware, perform software upgrades and maintenance, and handle user administration. Other duties include performing backup and recovery, system monitoring, performance tuning, and troubleshooting. The systems administrator may also be involved with application development and deployment, system security and reliability, and work with networked file systems.Web Administrator?The web administrator, also known as the webmaster, but more precisely referred to as a web server administrator, is responsible for maintaining websites. This differs from the development of websites. Specifically, the web administrator must install, configure, maintain, secure, and troubleshoot the web server. The web administrator may or may not be responsible for the hardware. Typically, the web administrator is not a systems administrator on those computers. herefore, the web administrator will have to work with the systems administrator on some aspects of installation and configuration.Database Administrator?Database administrators have a long list of important responsibilities, but with a focus on the design, development, and support of database management systems (DBMSs). Tasks will include installation, maintenance, performance analysis, and troubleshooting as with the other administrative areas. There are specific applications, performance tuning parameters, and procedures associated with the DBMS that are separate from those of systems administrators and web administrators.Computer Support Specialist?Computer support specialist is somewhat of an umbrella term. Some of the roles of the support specialist could be a responsibility of a systems administrator. The support specialist primarily operates as a trainer and troubleshooter. Training tasks may include the production of material such as technical manuals, documentation, and training scripts. Training may take on numerous forms including group training, individual training, training videos, and the production of training videos and software. Troubleshooting might involve working the help desk, training help desk personnel, and overseeing the help desk personnel.Which statement describes the role of a network administrator?Network administrators are responsible for the installation and maintenance of hardware and software that make up a computer network.Which statement about the systems analyst role is accurate?The role includes both business and technical knowledge and relies on effective communication to understand clients' requirementsWhich statement describes the role of a systems administrator?Systems administrators are responsible for supporting, monitoring, and maintaining workplace technology and end users.Which role is responsible for maintaining websites?Web administratorWhich task describes the role of a database administrator?ntegrating data from legacy systems to newer systems and playing a role in application design and developmentWhat is another title for a web administrator?

The abacus consists of strings of beads strung on rods which are mounted on a rectangular frame. As the beads are moved back and forth on the rod, their positions represent stored values. To carry out calculations, the abacus needs a human operator. Thus, the abacus must combine with a human to form a system whose purpose is carrying out additions.Punched CardsThe idea of communicating instructions with punched cards originated in 1801 in a system specifying the steps of the weaving process. Different patterns of holes resulted in different woven designs. Herman Hollerith used punched cards to speed up the tabulation process in the 1890 US census. Punched cards were heavily used for a variety of computing systems until the mid-1970s.Leibniz MachineThe Leibniz machine was designed to perform basic arithmetic operations, and the algorithm for addition was embedded into the structure of the hardware itself. Babbage's Analytical Engine (which was never constructed) was designed to read instructions in the form of holes on paper cards. Babbage's Analytical Engine was programmable. Ada Lovelace, who showed in a publication that the Analytical Engine is indeed programmable, is considered to be the world's first programmer.Electromechanical MachineExamples of this progress include the electromechanical machine of George Stibitz completed in 1940 at Bell Laboratories and Mark 1 completed in 1944 at Harvard University by Howard Aiken and a team of IBM engineers. These machines made heavy use of electronically controlled mechanical relays.Fully Electronic ComputerIn parallel to electromechanical machine efforts, the use of vacuum tubes gave way to fully electronic computers, such as the Atanasoff-Berry machine constructed at Iowa State College between 1937 and 1941, and Colossus built in England to decode German messages during the latter part of World War 2. Other more flexible machines, such as ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Calculator) developed at Pennsylvania State University, soon followed.Computing SystemThe development of computer systems largely depended on advancement in technology such as the invention of the transistor. Later the invention of complete circuits allowed for integration of multiple circuits on one piece of semiconductor material such as silicon. These integrated circuits reduced the size of the early computing systems of the 1940s from roomsized machines, to the size of a single cabinet. Processing power began to double every two years.Desktop ComputerA major step in the popularization of computer systems was the development of desktop computers. Steve Jobs and Stephen Wozniak built the first viable home computer and established Apple Computer, Inc. (now Apple, Inc.) in 1976 to mass-produce their garage-built, home computer. Other companies such as Commodore offered similar solutions, but these smaller computers were not widely adopted by businesses who continued to use the wellestablished mainframe computers.InternetToward the end of the twentieth century, the ability to connect individual computers in a world-wide system called the internet was revolutionizing communication. The British scientist Tim Bernes-Lee proposed a system by which documents stored on computers throughout the internet could be linked together producing a system of linked information called the World Wide Web. In order to make web pages more accessible to users, search engines (i.e. Bing and Google) and browsers (i.e. Edge and Chrome) were developed. Search engines use technologies to index and tag pages so users can quickly search for resources based on keywords.Personal ComputerIn 1981, IBM introduced its first desktop computer called the personal computer, or PC, whose underlying software was developed by a newly formed company known as Microsoft. The term PC is now widely used to refer to all machines that evolved from IBM's personal computer product, including desktops and laptops.Hand-Held ComputersTiny computers are embedded in a wide variety of electronic appliances and devices. Because hardware components are continuing to reduce in size, the capabilities of smartphones continue to expand. These hand-held computers are much more than mobile telephones. They are equipped with a wide variety of sensors, including cameras, microphones, compasses, and touch screens, as well as a number of wireless technologies used to communicate with other smartphones and computers.Memory address register (MAR)Holds the memory location of data that needs to be accessedMemory data register (MDR)Holds data that is being transferred to or from memoryAccumulator (AC)Holds the ALU resultsProgram counter (PC)Holds the address of the next program instruction to be executedCurrent instruction register (CIR)Holds the current instruction during processingWhat is the primary difference between a modern handheld computer and a modern desktop computer?A desktop has more processing power.1 kilobyte (KB) 1 megabytes (MB) 1 gigabytes (GB) 1 terabyte (TB) 1 petabyte (PB)2^10 or 1,024 bytes 2^20 or 1,048,576 bytes 2^30 or 1,073,741,824 bytes 2^40 or 1,099,511,627,776 bytes 2^50 or 1,125,899,906,842,624 bytesWhich type of computer peripheral is used only as an input device?KeyboardWhat is the role of the CPU in a computing system?Performing instructions of computer programsWhich network topology best handles downed links without losing connectivity between devices?MeshThe devices in Mei's office are interconnected in which type of network?LANPAN (Personal Area Network)A PAN (personal area network) is normally used for short-range communications, within a few feet, such as wireless headphones to a smartphone or a wireless mouse to a PC.LAN (Local Area Network)LANs (local area networks) consist of a collection of computers in a single building or building complex.WAN (Wide Area Network)WANs (wide area networks) link systems over a greater distance, including machines on the opposite sides of the world.Network Elements LaptopA laptop computer is a portable personal computer with a folding design. It includes an integrated flat screen, a keyboard with a mouse, and usually, a battery. It can also contain a CDROM, DVD-ROM, as well as various other devices such as SD card readers, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etcetera. Laptops typically connect to networks via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.RouterRouters are special-purpose computers that forward messages to and from the machines on their network. They use their forwarding table to match up the private IP address with the internet IP address and send the message to the correct machine.FirewallA firewall monitors network traffic and blocks traffic that triggers its safety rules, providing a barrier between a trusted private network and an untrusted network like the internet.ModemA modem bridges between the customer network and the ISP, converting the incoming analog data into digital, and the outgoing digital data into analog. It provides the access point to the internet.InternetThis term is often confusing. To ensure the proper meaning of the term, pay attention to whether or not it is capitalized. The Internet (with a capital I) generally refers to the worldwide Internet and is most often what non-technical people are referring to when they speak of the Internet. However, an internet is simply a network of networks. Often, when IT professionals refer to the internet, they are referring to a network of networks.Tablet ComputerA tablet computer is a portable computer typically with touchscreen display and a rechargeable battery in a thin and flat design. Typically, it connects to a network via Wi-Fi.SwitchA network switch extends the network by using packet switching to forward data to the intended hard-wired devices.ServerA server is a computer that provides services, such as website hosting and routing, for other devices.Desktop ComputerTypically, a tower chassis enclosure which contains the internal components of the computer system, an external display that provides output, and a keyboard and mouse to provide input.

Returning to normal operations after a disaster is slower with cold storage. Some examples of cold storage include tape backup, offline cloud storage, and even some online services such as Amazon Glacier and Google Coldline. One significant advantage of cold storage, however, is that it is less expensive than hot storage.Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Hot storageHot storage allows organizations the quickest access to restore critical data in the event of a disaster or catastrophe. Hot storage solutions typically involve the latest and greatest storage equipment and the fastest protocols. In addition, hot storage is typically located close to the client or in multiple locations to ensure fast access. Some hot data storage solutions include Microsoft's Azure Hot Blobs and Amazon's AWS service, but these premium solutions can be quite expensive because of the high-performing resources and protocols involved.What is the purpose of a business continuity plan?To enable an organization to continue offering critical services in the event of disruptionsA disaster recovery planplan specifies how a business will resume after an event to continue its operations.A business continuity planplan specifies how the business will keep providing products and services and generate revenue after an event.Mei and her team write the code for a new application.
