Keeping Enterprises' Head Above The Clouds!

By: Mahesh H. Dodani

Abstract

While the Internet and World Wide Web may seem invisible, residing somewhere out in the ether, in fact they reside in a network of interconnected data centers, also known as server farms. These data centers usually hold thousands of computer servers, jam-packed on racks, one on top of the other, which store and transmit the data and Web pages available on the Internet. Together, all of these servers in all of these data centers are known as “the cloud,” and today more and more of what you do when you fire up your computer doesn't happen on the little hard drive under your desk, but actually happens out there in the network cloud.
