Need to answer following two questions (appx. 600 words total) within 3-4 hours

 

Objective:

To use your knowledge of modern computing components to select the appropriate components to create a number of computers.

Q1.Identify the cost of building a computer using components bought individually from a store. You should create a Bill of Materials (including URLs to an online shop) including the cost of the individual components and the total cost for your system.

You should ensure that the components are compatible, and include a case.

You should select the components to match each of the following profiles and budgets.

a)      A server computer (you should ensure you use ECC memory) (max $2200) to be used in a doctor’s clinic, serving multiple doctors.

b)      A client computer (max $650) that would be used in the doctor’s clinic by doctors and receptionists.

You should briefly describe why the choices you have made would be appropriate for each of the computers.

The cheapest computer should be relatively small.

Q2.Identify an appropriate hardware backup solution for the server computer, as well as a process to ensure that the backups are performed regularly, and are secure.

Identify possible risks associated with doing backups and how your strategy overcomes them.
