Sample text

As a review, in a two-tier architecture, the user interface is typically located in the user’s desktop, while the database being accessed is located on a server that provides services to many clients. In a three-tier (also referred to as multitier) architecture, a middle layer was added between the client and the database to be accessed. The middle layer can queue requests, execute applications, provide scheduling, and even prioritize work in progress. When considering trade-offs between a two-tier and a multitier architecture, it is important to note that the latter will always increase the data flow on a LAN, and this increase needs to be considered, especially if the network is approaching congestion prior to implementing a ­multitier solution to a database retrieval problem.

There are two types of server architecture one must consider to expedite the flow of data. Those types of architecture are internal and external to the server. When we discuss internal server ­architecture, we primarily reference the arrangement and specifications of the components within the server, including processors, processor power, memory, channels to disk, disk capacity, and disk input/output (I/O) data transfer rates. When we discuss external server architecture, we primarily reference the subdivision of effort by having one server function as a preprocessor for another.

In doing so, CDN facilitates a variety of client-server communications to include pull, push, and even Web crawling. 5 Video Considerations In concluding this chapter, a few words concerning video are warranted. Although video was being incorporated onto Web sites when the first version of this book was written, both server storage and network bandwidth were constraints that severely limited its use. Over the past decade, data storage has grown by a factor of 10 to 100, depending upon the technology considered.
