The Internet Infrastructure Stack
Students need to understand the essential technical elements of the Internet, and “stack” is terminology that is often used because each level must be supported by technology in the lower levels. They need to understand these terms at the definitional level, although few of us understand the detail about how they actually work.
“The cloud” has been added to the stack in the third edition. It is important for students to understand the potential cost savings and the ability to preserve security of data. If you wish to get into the potential for “greener” computing, there is plenty of discussion on that. The links the Apple Cloud and the Best Buy Cloud in Interactive Exercise 1.2 are interesting but the link to the Microsoft material is the most important. Microsoft has set out to educate the business and consuming public about the virtues of cloud computing and its ads are instructive. Videos/product tours on sites like salesforce.com make the business benefits even more clear.
The infographic referenced in the text http://www.cloudtweaks.com/2010/11/cloud-hypermarket-on-the-future-of-cloud-computing-and-microsofts-cloud-power-campaign is informative. At the least, students need to realize that they also participate in the cloud through webmail, upload sites, various Internet applications and others.
