Network infrastructure is the hardware and software resources of an entire network that enable network connectivity, communication, operations and management of an enterprise network. It provides the communication path and services between users, processes, applications, services and external networks/the internet.
What are the two main benefits of having a Cloud based Network Infrastructure in place:
- Resource Sharing: All computers in the network can share resources such as printers, fax machines, modems, and scanners.
- Communication: Even outside of the internet, those on the network can communicate with each other via electronic mail over the network system.
- Cost-efficient and can help protect your systems if you properly secure the network. Increasing storage capacity – you can access files and multimedia, such as images and music, which you store remotely on other machines or network-attached storage devices.
