Q. What is a VLAN?

A.

This is a method used to allow more than one network to use a single connection or cable. For instance the computer network and an IP phone system.

Q. What’s the difference between a NAS and a SAN?

A.

Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a device attached to the network to allow computers to share the storage it contains.

Storage Area Network (SAN) is a separate network and is used to run databases, shared files and run virtual machines. Computers on a network will not be able to access a SAN directly but will access data on it via a server.

Q. What is a Windows Domain and why is it different to a workgroup?

A.

A domain is a network with a server which is configured to centralise user accounts, network policy’s and secure data based on permissions granted to the user account.

A workgroup is a network of computers which have accounts and permissions based on their own accounts database. Each PC will have a user account which only exists on itself. This makes management and control of shared data more difficult as the user accounts permissions will only be applicable to the computer the account is configured on.

Q. Internet, Intranet or Extranet – what are they?

A.

Internet: applications are accessed by anyone from any location using the web

Intranet: allows limited access to users in the same organization. Usually just accessed from within the network

Extranet: external users are allowed or provided with access to use the network application of the organization. Often by using a username and password
