A virtual machine is a simulated computer that runs on a physical computer, the host. For example, a host computer running windows 7 would be able to open a virtual machine or machines acting as their own computers. These virtual machines can be running the same or different operating systems and can be allocated different amounts of the physical computers hardware. Virtual machines still have the same minimum system requirements as physical computers so it is important to have a powerful host computer (Angeles). Virtual technology is important because it allows users and companies to efficiently run multiple computers.
Using cloud computing, you can access your files and programs from any computer anywhere in the world, all you need is an Internet connection. Cloud storage required hosting companies to operate a large data centers, and people who require their data to be hosted buy or lease storage capacity from them. Physically, the resource may across multiple servers. The safety of the files depends upon the hosting websites. It means storage capacity, that’s can be access through a public network, like the Internet, or WAN (Wide Area Network).

host operating system. 2.2 Hypervisor Hypervisor is also known as virtual machine monitor (VMM). The VMM is a thin software layer that runs directly on a physical machine’s hardware. On top of the virtual machine monitor, there can be one or more virtual machines. The VMM provides each virtual machine with a set of virtual interfaces that resemble direct interfaces to the underlying hardware.
Where once we had simple peer-to-peer networks, then client-server networks and now we have cloud computing and virtualization. With virtualization, we can now use computers that are no longer in the same room or even the same building and work on the computers as if they were sitting right next to the user just like a normal computer. What is Desktop Virtualization Desktop Virtualization takes the idea of running a computer and turns it into a service that provides users a desktop even over a great distance. This is done by “isolating a logical operating system instance from the client that is uses to access the operating system” (Rouse & Madden, Desktop Virtualization, 2011). The basic idea is that the end user will get a version of the operating system that is streamed to their office location.
The first type of network operating system is peer to peer. The operating system for a peer to peer network allows the users within the network to access files contained in their computers as well as shared files on other computers. “You can configure computers in peer to peer workgroups to allow sharing of files, printers and other resources across all of the devices. Peer networks allow data to be shared easily in both directions, whether for downloads to your computer or uploads ... ... middle of paper ... ... or print server, as well as an application server, and Microsoft has created both workstation and server editions of Windows NT . Microsoft even offers a version for small businesses with 25 users or less called Microsoft BackOffice for Small Business that includes Windows NT Server, plus Microsoft Internet Information Server for Web services, Microsoft Exchange server to support electronic mail and Microsoft SQL server for database applications  Works Cited  http://fcit.usf.edu/network/chap6/chap6.htm  http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-a-network-operating-system.htm  http://compnetworking.about.com/od/basicnetworkingfa9s/a/peer-to-peer.htm  http://compnetworking.about.com/od/basicnetworkingfa9s/ a/ cI ie nt -se rver.
Snapshots of your server can be taken regularly and as often as you prefer. Then, you can use any one of those snapshots to return your server to a particular configuration from a particular point in time. For example, before your network was infected by a virus. With a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, you only have to deal with the server on your network. So, when you want to install a new program, you install it just once on the server.
By adding this snap-in you can perform remote administration to a networked computer, rather than being in front of the computer. The lab had us test the consoles we created. I checked the removable storage device on my computer locally and my partners’ computer remotely.
Non-technical management define it as “anything that runs on the internal network”, while software engineers (developers) define it as “a client-server application developed using Web tools that runs in an internal network” - Intranetjournal.com - Initially the intranet was used fundamentally for sharing information such as policies, procedures and forms. However, the next intranet generation creates a collaborative medium that provides users quick, comprehensive access to everything their jobs require – files, programs, and people, both inside and outside the organization – while capturing and managing each person’s work so that others in turn can find and use it. Fundamentally the most basic intranet applications in use today - techweb.com - are: - Deliver internal BBS – and corporate – information sources, such as phone directories, HR databases, forms, and discussion threads. - Offer a foundation for moving information among offices and departments, whether around the corner at the same site, or across sites on a private internet. - Support day to day business functions, such as sales tracking, order processing, delivery status, etc.
Lepide Event Log Manager (LELM) has an edge over the traditional and native Windows Event Viewer because of its next-gen features. Being a centralized solution, it allows you to manage the event logs of multiple computers in the same or different domains at a common platform. At scheduled intervals, LELM will collect the logs of added computers automatically in two ways - with an agent and without an agent. The former allows the better parsing of the events, but it will install an agent program on the target computer, whereas the latter doesn’t need any further installation. All the logs are stored permanently for long-term usage in a proprietary database.
