In the future, I think that centralised computer control systems will become more prominent, and it will be used in a variety of different ways from health care to households.
Cloud computing is essentially when information and programs are stored and can be accesses over the internet. The idea of cloud computing has been around since the sixties. It is said to have been created by Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider as he worked on the ARPNET (which was the name of the internet in its first stages), but the word has evolved over the years, the idea of cloud computing now is very different from what it was back then.
The DHCP is responsible for assigning IP addresses to hosts on the network. DHCP is imperative to the running of the network, if DHCP was not used then IP world be allocated manually, this would lead to conflict occurring as two hosts would have the same IP addresses.
I am going to be starting a series of blogs explaining the fundamentals of networks, today I explain ARP (Address Resolution Protocol).
