The chief technology officer (CTO) at ABC Widgets just returned from a technology conference where they heard about computer clusters. All they know is that computer clusters are the big thing for businesses and the CTO wants to explore the technology. The CTO has asked you to help.
Write a 3-page research paper explaining computer clustering, benefits, challenges, and potential applications. The paper should focus on one type of clustering application (file server, database, load balancing, Web hosting, or data processing) and detail the use, potential setup (high availability or load balancing), type (COTS versus blade clusters), and network connectivity. Be sure that your paper has an introduction and a conclusion.
Your paper should be 3 pages in length. Be sure to use appropriate APA format and cite your textbook or other sources that you used in your paper.
The paper should contain sufficient information to adequately answer the questions and contain no spelling, grammar, or APA errors.
For assistance with APA requirements, use the resources provided in the Academic Tools section of the course.
Also review the university policy on plagiarism. If you have any questions, please contact your professor.
