4 Layers of AWS Architecture a Quick Answer

I have collected real interview questions on AWS key architecture components. Those are S3, EC2, SQS, and SimpleDB. AWS is one of the most popular skills in the area of Cloud computing. Many companies are recruiting software developers to work on cloud computing.

AWS Key Architecture Components AWS is the top cloud platform. The knowledge of this helpful to learn other cloud platforms. Below are the questions asked in interviews recently.
What are the components involved in AWS?Amazon S3.With this, one can retrieve the key information which is occupied in creating cloud structural design, and the amount of produced information also can be stored in this component that is the consequence of the key specified.Amazon EC2. Helpful to run a large distributed system on the Hadoop cluster. Automatic parallelization and job scheduling can be achieved by this component.Amazon SQS. This component acts as a mediator between different controllers. Also worn for cushioning requirements those are obt…

Storage area network (SAN): Networks Vs Configurations

These are most popular terms used in Storage area networks area. Every developer must know these terms clearly. Highly useful to explain in interviews. Frequently used terminology in SAN given below for your quick reference. 

SAN Network

  • Fibre channel - Fibre channel denotes a fibre-optical connection to a device or component. This is typically abbreviated as FC.
  • Host bus adapter - A host bus adapter is used by a given machine to access a storage area network. A host bus adapter is similar in function to a network adapter and how it provides access for a machine to a local area network or wide area network. This is typically abbreviated as HBA.
  • Storage area network - A storage area network is a network of shared devices that can typically be accessed using fibre. Often, a storage area network is used to share devices between many different machines. This is typically abbreviated as SAN

SAN Configurations

  • Point to point - This is the simplest configuration. The devices are connected directly to the HBA.
  • Arbitrated loop - Arbitrated loop topologies are ring topologies and are limited in terms of the number of devices that are supported on the loop and the number of devices that can be in use at a given time. In an arbitrated loop, only two devices can communicate at the same time. Data being read from a device or written to a device is passed from one device on the loop to another until it reaches the target device. The main limiting factor in an arbitrated loop is that only two devices can be in use at a given time.
  • Switched fabric - In a switched fabric SAN, all devices in the fabric will be fibre native devices. This topology has the greatest bandwidth and flexibility because all devices are available to all HBAs through some fibre path.
