About This Chapter
Infrastructure & Architecture for System Analysis & Design - Chapter Summary
This systems analysis and design chapter offers clear explanations of important infrastructure and architecture concepts. Follow along with our expert instructors to learn about distributed hash tables, routing protocols, distributed caches and much more. To strengthen your understanding of these concepts, we've included several self-assessment quizzes throughout the chapter. You can study at any time that's convenient using your desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Upon completion of the chapter, you should be able to:
- Discuss the implementation of a distributed hash table
- Compare interior and exterior gateways
- Explain the functions of a distributed cache
- Create a database schema
- Describe the benefits, components, patterns and diagrams of event-driven architecture
1. Routing Protocols: Interior & Exterior Gateways
In this lesson, we will define routing protocol and learn the role routing protocols play in networks. We will examine interior and exterior gateways, learning their functions and differences.
2. How Distributed Cache Works: Design & Architecture
In this lesson, we will learn about the concept of caching and the definition and significance of distributed caching. We will look at the design and architecture of different types of distributed caching.
3. How to Design a Database Schema
Just as in construction, a solid database needs a blueprint. Database schemas are blueprints for databases. In this lesson, we will discuss how to design and create a database schema.
