  3. 3. Hardware Components <ul><li>Physical components of the computer </li></ul><ul><li>Input Devices – receive signals from outside the computer and transfer them into the computer </li></ul><ul><li>e.g. Computer keyboard, mouse, tablets, </li></ul><ul><li>digital pens, numeric keypads, touchscreens </li></ul>
  4. 4. Input Device
  5. 5. Hardware Components <ul><li>CPU - central processing unit </li></ul><ul><ul><li>-accepts instructions and data, decodes and executes instructions and stores results in memory for later display </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Hardware Components <ul><li>Internal Memory </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- main memory or primary memory </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Located near the CPU and stores data and instructions just before and after the CPU processes them. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>RAM (Random Access Memory) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ROM (Read Only Memory) </li></ul></ul>

  12. 12. External Memory
  13. 13. External Memory
  14. 14. DAS, NAS and SAN <ul><li>DAS – Direct Access Storage </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A disk or array of disks directly connected to a server </li></ul></ul><ul><li>NAS – Network Attached Storage </li></ul><ul><li>- comprises both the the storage media, such as hard disks and management software which is fully dedicated to serving (accessing) files over the network. </li></ul>
  15. 15. DAS, NAS and SAN <ul><li>SAN (Storage Area Network) </li></ul><ul><li>- a network fully devoted to storage and and transfer of data between servers and storage devices. The storage devices are part of this dedicated network separate from the organization’s network. </li></ul><ul><li>RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) </li></ul><ul><li>-data is replicated on different disks to enhance processing speed and fault tolerance. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Business Considerations in Evaluating Storage Media <ul><li>Purpose of Data Storage </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For current operations or backup? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Storage Volume </li></ul><ul><li>-Price per megabit or megabyte </li></ul><ul><li>Speed </li></ul><ul><li>- Measured in rpm (5400,7200,10000 & 15000) </li></ul><ul><li>Unit Space and Portability </li></ul><ul><li>- physical size of the storage medium </li></ul><ul><li>Cost </li></ul><ul><li>- obtain the largest size of storage for the smallest amount of money </li></ul><ul><li>Reliability and Life Expectancy </li></ul><ul><li>Trade-Offs </li></ul>
  17. 17. Output Devices <ul><li>Most commonly computer monitors and printers </li></ul>
  18. 18. Output Devices
  19. 19. Output Devices
  20. 20. Parts of a computer
  21. 21. Hardware Components
  22. 22. CLASSIFICATION OF COMPUTERS: A. Supercomputers
  23. 23. Supercomputers
  24. 24. The IBM Blue Gene
  25. 25. Solution Comparison Chart
  26. 26. Sample Application of the Blue Gene <ul><li>Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory – California </li></ul><ul><li>130,000 processors </li></ul><ul><li>Area half of a tennis court </li></ul><ul><li>360 trillion calculations/second </li></ul>
  27. 27. Supercomputers
  28. 28. Mainframes or “Big Iron” <ul><li>Less powerful and less expensive than the supercomputers (at least $1M). They cost several thousand to several hundred thousand dollars. </li></ul><ul><li>Banks, Insurance Companies, Large retail chains, universities </li></ul><ul><li>40 to 50 % of the world’s data resides on mainframes </li></ul><ul><li>Examples : IBM, Fujitsu, Unisys </li></ul>
