“IT IS POSSIBLE TO GET EDUCATION STAYING AT ANY WHERE“
An IT infrastructure provides a means of moving data from one place to another and acting upon it. The scale of the move ranges from locally -- from a storage device to a server for use or changes prior to returning to storage -- to client/server -- a user at an access device (PC, tablet, smartphone) pulling data from a central location. Infrastructure also may be spread across a mix of data centers controlled by the organization or other entities such as colocation facilities or hosting/cloud companies. Cloud computing promises a flexible IT infrastructure, where resources can be applied and removed dynamically to workloads as required across a broad collection of individual platforms. End-to-end infrastructure also may include mobile wide area networks (WAN) and other IT components.
Infrastructure may be centered within a data center, with connections to users in different environments using intelligent or dumb access devices. Some vendors provide pre-engineered blocks of compute, storage and network equipment (converged infrastructure) that optimize the IT hardware and virtualization platform into a single system that can be easily interconnected to other systems.
