Question by : is this a right diagram for a basic scheme for how internet works?
computer (or any web enabled device ) <-----------> internet <----------->server(s)(including any combination of application, web, search servers, etc) <---------------->database

Is that a right diagram for the most basic scheme? Is it still valid for cloud computing? What would be a right diagram for cloud computing? Thanks

Not quite. You left out router, modem, any possible ISP (Internet Service Provider) you connect through (not the same as the server), and there’s something else I can’t quite put my finger on, before “database”. (Sorry, I can’t quite “see” it 🙁

Good luck with that homework assignment 🙂

What is the difference between a web host like Joyent and a basic hosting company like GoDaddy?

Question by PJ: What is the difference between a web host like Joyent and a basic hosting company like GoDaddy?
I’m trying to figure out which company to use for hosting the database that will be required for my small business. The business helps clients crunch certain information using a database (likely written in php).

I was referred to Joyent and it looks like a solid cloud host, but I’m also familiar with GoDaddy and they are much cheaper. Are they in the same ballpark in terms of what they can offer?

I haven’t tried Joyent but I’d stay away from godaddy.
Personally I have found IX to be the best of the lot.
