Good work last night! To recap: We reviewed Operating Systems from week 3 and covered Storage Topics including how magnetic storage (hard drives in particular) works as well as backup and fault tolerance techniques (Mirroring and RAID). We also discussed and examined benefits of cloud based services over desktop based services.
Next week we will cover Networking, which will involve a hands-on lab configuring a test network.
For next week: 1) Ensure you can access the software site and successfully download software 2) Read Burd Ch. 9 3) Submit the two storage assignments to me by next class.
I would like everyone to utilize the IT Knowledge Base to complete this week’s (and future weeks) assignment as well as resolve any outstanding issues related to VMWare, the MIS Software Website etc. For anyone that was having issues downloading software, configuring VMWare etc… last night from the MIS Software website, I would like you to post your issue to our IT Knowledge Base detailing your issue and what you have done to resolve it. Anyone that posts their issues and/or provides guidance or a solution to anyone with a software install issue or any issue will receive additional credit on their participation grade.
I am expecting everyone to utilize the IT Knowledge Base on-going as a key component of the participation grade for this course.
See you all next week!
