In this chapter, students will be able to understand three basic questions associated with computing systems: What are computing systems used for? How are computing systems implemented? What are computing systems able to do and how well can they do it?
Chapter 2 - Computer-system structures. The main contents of this chapter include all of the following: Computer system operation, I/O structure, storage structure, storage hierarchy, hardware protection, general system architecture.
Chapter 2 discusses the general structure of computer systems. It may be a good idea to review the basic concepts of machine organization and assembly language programming. The students should be comfortable with the concepts of memory, CPU, registers, I/O, interrupts, instructions, and the instruction execution cycle. Since the operating system is the interface between the hardware and user programs, a good understanding of operating systems requires an understanding of both hardware and programs.
The majority of successful attacks on computer systems via the Internet can be traced to exploitation of security flaws in software and operating systems. These few software vulnerabilities account for the majority of successful attacks, simply because attackers are opportunistic – taking the easiest and most convenient route. They exploit the best-known flaws with the most effective and widely available attack tools.

"cloudsim: a toolkit for modeling and simulation of cloud computing environments and evaluation of resource provisioning algorithms" presents the background information on various elements that form the basis for architecting Cloud computing systems. It also presents the requirements of elastic or malleable applications that need to scale across multiple, geographically distributed data centers that are owned by one or more Cloud service providers.
In this chapter, you will learn to: To describe the basic organization of computer systems, to provide a grand tour of the major components of operating systems, to give an overview of the many types of computing environments, to explore several open-source operating systems.
Chapter 1A - Introducing computer systems. This chapter includes contents: In basic terms, define the word com puter; discuss various ways computers can be categorized; identify six types of computers designed for individual use; identify four types of computers used primarily by organizations; explain the importance of computers in today's society; describe how computers are used in various sectors of our society.
The learning objectives for Chapter 3 include: Understand the history and evolution of computer hardware; identify the major types and uses of microcomputer, midrange, and mainframe computer systems; outline the major technologies and uses of computer peripherals for input, output, and storage;...

Chapter 1B - Looking inside the computer system. This lesson gives you a glimpse inside a standard desktop computer and introduces you to its most important parts. You will learn how these components work together and allow you to interact with the system. You also will discover the importance of software, without which a computer could do nothing. Finally, you will see that the user is (in most cases, at least) an essential part of a complete computer system.
The first step to good computer security is awareness. You should understand a ll the dangers that specifically threaten your computer system. You need to know how each threat can affect you and prioritize them accordingly. This lesson introduces you to some of the most common threats to your privacy, data, and hardware. The following lesson shows you how to protect yourself and your system.
Chapter 14B - Taking protective measures. In this lesson, you will leam about specific steps you can take to secure your computer system and your data from a variety of threats. You might be surprised to learn that computer security is not primarily a technical issue, and is not necessarily expensive. For the most part, keeping your system and data secure is a matter of common sense.
