I don't think I can't trust a guy that does not know the difference between the Internet and the web. The Internet is the link because every system that is a part of the Internet, the web is a system on the Internet that allows the display different types of information. The "cloud" is a buzzword based on somebody seeing a network diagram and saw that "The Internet" had a cloud drawn around it.
*laugh* I agree.
The internet and web are the same thing.
I think you mean the difference between a network and internet.
Eitherway... "Cloud" anything I think is kind of stupid because it's stuff that has already existed for a long time... they're just giving it a new name... like Eyefinity... I don't like when people do that... try to rebrand an old idea as a new innovation.
Web hosting, any type of remote storage, remote computing(such as virtualization) etc. could all be considered "The Cloud". On Live... which is just a server farm with some nifty software would be considered cloud computing.
The Internet is the network of the many servers and computers that comprise... the web
The Web is the web/network or the many servers and computer that comprise... the internet.
It's all the same, just different names for it.
A Website is a single hub for providing data.
A network is the means of making this data available.
Also Acarzt the Internet and the World Wide Web are *not* the same thing. You can have the Internet without the World Wide Web, but you can't have the WWW without the Internet.
You can have intr*A*net without WWW. You cannot have int*E*rnet without WWW because they are the same thing.
You can easily create a HTML file that is available locally only, but that is an intranet, not internet.
I guess really it can be up to opinion and views.
I understand why you see www and internet serperate. You view www as webpages that exist on the internet.
I view WWW as the web of computers. Internetwork would be the "proper term" and WWW is the "buzz" word.
WWW is not a network protocol, so I do not see it as existing on the internet. Webpages exist through HTTP or HTTPS or FTP or whatever protocol you are using.
This webpage or website is a spot on the web, it is assigned an IP address and it is available over HTTP on the internet or world wide web(of computers and servers)
I will concede tho that 20 years ago when they set out to create what they were calling the world wide web, it was only intended for hypertext. What they created was the HTTP protocol and they continued calling it the web.
But now, the web consists of so much more than just HTTP. Many protocols are used over the web.
If you view WWW as it's original intent, only HTTP than I can agree.
But to me it has evolved beyond that and encompasses so much more.
In trying to prove my point, I have convinced myself otherwise lol..... It is late, I am at work and my mind is all over the place.... But reverting back to the trusty old OSI model has helped me to see things differently.
If considering the origin of WWW and removing the hardware element, even with as much as the web has changed. The internet exists on all levels of the OSI model while WWW does not. While an HTML file exists as data on a hard drive, it can not exist on the physical layer.
With the complexity of everythiing out there on the web\internet it is easy to lump them together because we're not just dealing with http anymore.
But I give in and will agree that they are seperate. And I blame Microsoft for my confusion :-) I've spent far too much time studying active directory, exchange, load balancing, and blah blah blah *sigh* I need to go to bed. lol
People have varied opinions about the Cloud computing technology and describe it from their own perspective, but I guess this to be one of the reasons why cloud has become such a popular word today. Now, in this case where cloud is said to be more important that the Net, it should be asked if there are any other ways of establishing connections with the servers hosted at distant locations.
