hard drive. Usually to fully take advantage of this external hard drive is to use it as a backup storage hard drive. So whatever you have stored on your PC you should have a copy on your external hard drive as a backup so if the PC hard drive fails you can recover it using your external hard drive. For my corporations I would go more with the NAS options because more than one back up can be setup and the option to schedule backup is also available. Server Roles: The diagram you see above is an example of how the infrastructure diagram will be laid out with each server having its role. This is how the server’s will be setup for Lopes
Manufacturing company the first one you see on the list from left to right is the VPN Server. This server is used for remote users to connect to the company’s database through the internet. All the data traveling between the computer and server through the VPN tunnel is encrypted. In order to setup this VPN server I am using Windows Server 2012 R2 which can support VPN setup. The next setup of the setup is to make sure the routers and firewalls permit legitimate VPN access to pass through. The DNS servers along with the rest of the servers are located at the main Lopes Manufacturing Network Operations Center. The servers are all located at the Network Operations Center because that is the organizations main Information Technology Head Quarters and it is easy for the engineers to access the server if they need to restart the server physically. The DNS server is running Windows Server 2012 R2 and it handles all the AD domains and directories so that they can be translated into IP Addresses. As you can see I also have a secondary DNS, I have this setup this way in case the primary DNS goes down. All the traffic would be redirected to the secondary DNS causing no interruptions to any of the users making the organizations still functional while the primary DNS Server is being worked on. Both Windows and Linux operating systems will be integrated in this organizations infrastructure. These two operating systems have many features that benefit the company in many ways. Linux provides open-source features, multi-user, hierarchical file system, and Shell. Windows adds to this by being very easy to use and maneuver for many users such as searching and organizing, parental controls, default programs, and remote desktop connection. These operating systems will be ran using a virtual server that way it is much easier to setup and manage on the engineering side as well as save good money on hardware.
Using the virtual servers would be an ideal method and would even make cloning easier for the engineers to have incase anything would go wrong with the virtual machine. Samba would then come in when it came to file sharing that way applications developers that like to work on Linux can share files across users using Windows Operating System. Active Directory and LDAP integration would be used for authentication. The second option would be Novell’s
