A star topology can have a maximum of 1024 nodes on a LAN and is commonly used for 10BaseT. (IEEE 802.3) and 100BaseTX (IEEE 802.3u) Ethernet. The advantages of using a Star Topology include reliability and ease of maintenance and installation. Monitoring and troubleshooting can be maintained at the central device, providing easier maintenance. A Star topology allows for greater reliability because each node is connected to the central devise by a segment.
Cloud computing services are online services, which store this information to a safe and secure location online. It’s offered a quicker, easier and safer backup than conventional methods of file storage such as bookshelves or cardboard files. Several types of cloud storage systems have been developed to supporting both personal and business uses. Cloud storage also a model of networked enterprise storage where the data is stored not only in the user's computer, but also in virtualized of storage, which generally hosted by third parties company. Using cloud computing, you can access your files and programs from any computer anywhere in the world, all you need is an Internet connection.
You will see the benefits of moving your data from floppy disks onto an SSD almost immediately. Your employees will be able to transfer data effortlessly with your shared storage, while ensuring that no data is lost. The ability to access your data from cloud-based storage will give you an edge over the competition. These updated storage solutions will open doors to greater opportunities for your employees and your company.
• Benefit of incorporating cloud (i) Reduce capital cost By incorporating cloud, the company can increase their existing storage capacity and capabilities. As long as the company has access to the cloud, they will be able to use all the applications in the server. The company does not need to incur additional cost to buy more hard disk or other local storage devices. Additionally, the company can save on expenditure for new infrastructure, licensing of new software or training new personals to meet the IT needs of the company. As the cloud system is self-service provision, the company can easily request for more cloud computing services at any time.
Also it provides more fast communication, better connectivity and transparency and there is no need for separate gateways in order to connect the devices. As an example Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) has implementations based upon Ethernet and the IP protocol suite (EtherNet/IP), DeviceNet, and ControlNet (among others). Most of the controllers can transfer data from one network type to another, leveraging existing installations, by utilizing the advantage of Ethernet. The fieldbus data structure is applied to Layers 5, 6, and 7 of the OSI refe...
This enables workgroup members to use the same phone lines as the router and save on the cost of extra phone lines. The router is equipped with two built-in 56K V.90 modems and has an external 230Kb per second RS-232 port. The WebRamp 310i's 47.59Kbps performance put it slightly behind the ProxyServer's 49.83Kbps throughput. The router has a built-in four-port 10BaseT hub for building an instant Ethernet network.
The ROI outweighs the issues or problems that could occur. Cloud computing gives a competitive advantage of being able to keep up with changes in technology without having the cost involved.

The system is also scalable in that additional hardware is easily added to the network to allow for more users. This allows the corporation to add significant amounts of new users without significantly changing the network infrastructure. VPN's are typically platform independent with the majority of the VPN's occurring on UNIX, Windows, or Macintosh. They all operate seamlessly; offer strengthened security, mobile user support, and ease of use. Site to Site Site to site VPN's extend the wide area network in the sense that they provide large scale encryption between multiple sites such as remote offices and central offices, and also over the internet.
The high usage is unsurprising, as P2P allows for a combination of the resources available on the computers of each connected user, as opposed to a client/server model where the users rely on the special servers to provide the resources. By presenting each user within the network as both a client and a server, P2P networking allows for applications and services to provide benefits such as real-time distributed processing, communication, collaboration, and content distribution. 2. Peer-to-Peer Network Definition A P2P network can be defined as a network filled with autonomous peers that is completely decentralized and self-organized regarding resource distribution. The users within the peer-to-peer network form a virtual network that is independent of the actual physical network .
