Today's IT Infrastructure is often stated as three components:
computers, storage, and networking. It's hard to say which is
most important since all three are usually needed to do any
real work, or entertain us. Early computers, through the '70s,
were seldom networked but today's are usually networked and
many mission-critical applications require networks to run.

Networks were rare in computer systems from the '50s and emerged
in the '70s as enterprise found it was cost-effective and
enhanced control to connect branches to computers at the home
office. Networks became more common in the '80s as PCs became
common in the office and at home, but the networks were
expensive and very limited compared to today's internet and
ethernet.

Today's networks are as at least as important as the computers on them.
Our personal computers and phones don't do much interesting without their
networks. Commerce, relationships, and entertainment depend on networking.
'The network is the computer' is one opinion, and in many cases it seems
the computer is the network. Networks computers, and storage are closely
related, engineered to fit like gloves.

Hyperconvergence: The state of the art in 2017 puts networking, storage,
and 64-bit computer components together on the same chip, making the fit
more comfortable than ever. These networked SoCs - Systems on Chips range
from the smallest embedded processors through multi-core, 64-bit servers.
ARM64 SoCs are enabling a a new class of hyper-converged machines with
processors for data, storage, and networking all on a chip. They will do
it all faster and cheaper than ever before.

Software shared is device drivers to make our computers' peripheral
equipment work better, Javascript to make web pages and forms look and
behave better, and all kinds of application software that makes our
computers good for work and play.

Data shared ranges from EDI documents for supply chain management,
shipping, and insurance through public records, pictures, movies, social
media, entertainment, news, and to support all kinds of relationships with
people and organizations.

File3:

October arrived, spreading a damp chill over the grounds and into the
castle. Madam Pomfrey, the nurse, was kept busy by a sudden spate of colds
among the staff and students. Her Pepperup potion worked instantly, though
it left the drinker smoking at the ears for several hours afterward.
Ginny Weasley, who had been looking pale, was bulled into taking some by
Percy. The steam pouring from under her vivid hair gave the impression
that her whole head was on fire.

Raindrops the size of bullets thundered on the castle windows for days on
end; the lake rose, the flower beds turned into muddy streams, and
Hagrid's pumpkins swelled to the size of garden sheds. Oliver Wood's
enthusiasm for regular training sessions, however, was not dampened, which
was why Harry was to be found, late one stormy Saturday afternoon a few
days before Halloween, returning to Gryffindor Tower, drenched to the skin
and splattered with mud.

Even aside from the rain and wind it hadn't been a happy practice session.
Fred and George, who had been spying on the Slytherin team, had seen for
themselves the speed of those new Nimbus Two Thousand and Ones. They had
reported that the Slytherin team was no more than seven greenish blurs,
shooting through the air like missiles.
