Assignment No. 03 Graded Semester: Spring 2016 Information Systems (CS507) : Due Date || 26th of July

Dear All,

Please find below assignment#3 for CS507:

Kindly discuss here and suggest your opinions. Thanks 

Objective:

  • To understand the Information System Concepts
  • To enhance the communication and presentation skill

Important Note:


You will have to record a video file (audio+video) for making the assignment read the following instructions
carefully.
Instructions for the assignment preparation:
· You are required to make a presentation file (.ppt or .pptx) for your assignment solution
· Presentation will consist of maximum of 4 – 5 slides
· First slide will contain student name and ID
· Remaining slides(3-4) will contain the solution of the assignment
· You have to formally present your assignment with proper dress code and have to record the video of your
presentation
· You can use any video recording facility such as web cam, camera, mobile phone or etc. for recording of
your presentation (See the tutorial “Tips for Recording Videos.mp4” available at download section of
VULMS).
· In first slide, you will tell your name and ID, and in remaining slides, you will be required to explain your
solution.
· Your introduction and explanation should not take more than 4 to 5 minutes
· After recording of your presentation, you have to convert your video in “.3gp” format using any video
conversion tool to reduce the size of the video file. (See the tutorial “Video Compression.mp4” available
at download section of VULMS)
· After converting the video in .3gp format, review your file to verify that audio and video are properly
playing.
· Install VLC media player to view your compressed video before uploading on VU-LMS. You can
download VLC from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html.
· It is preferable to use English in your presentation in case of reluctance you can also use Urdu language.
· Note that you will record your presentation standing in front of camera.
Uploading instructions:
Please view the Assignment Submission Process document provided to you by the Virtual University for
uploading assignments.
Compress your video file and presentation file using any compression tool like WINZIP or WINRAR
Save your assignment with your ID (e.g. bc020200786.rar)
Make sure that size of assignment file should not exceed 30 MB
No assignment will be accepted through email.
Weightage of Assignment:
· This assignment has 5% weightage of your overall marks in CS507.
Rules for Marking:
It should be clear that your assignment will not get any credit if:
The assignment is submitted after due date.
In assignment file the student name with vu student id is not mentioned
The submitted assignment does not open or file is corrupted.

zargham bhai , slide bana kar sirf read karni ha ? slide tu nahy submit karni ?

@Rana(mbs)  you have to submit slides as well.

wo bhi submit karni hai... read the instructions carefully 

NOW COMING TO THE FIRST PART, THAT IS ANSWER OF QUESTION

Question 1 : What is Grid Computing? Discuss Distributed Computing vs Grid Computing?
Grid computing is the collection of computer resources from multiple locations to reach a common goal. The grid can be thought of as a distributed system with non-interactive workloads that involve a large number of files. Grid computing is distinguished from conventional high performance computing systems such as cluster computing in that grid computers have each node set to perform a different task/application.[better source needed] Grid computers also tend to be more heterogeneous and geographically dispersed (thus not physically coupled) than cluster computers. Although a single grid can be dedicated to a particular application, commonly a grid is used for a variety of purposes. Grids are often constructed with general-purpose grid middleware software libraries. Grid sizes can be quite large.

Grid Computing Vs. Distributed Computing

Since 1980, two advances in technology has made distributed computing a more practical idea, computer CPU power and communication bandwidth. The result of these technologies is not only feasible but easy to put together large number of computer systems for solving complex computational power or storage requirements. But the numbers of real distributable applications are still somewhat limited, and the challenges are still significant (standardization, interoperability etc). 

As it is clear from the definition, traditional distributed computing can be characterized as a subset of grid computing. some of the differences between these two are

1. Distributed Computing normally refers to managing or pooling the hundreds or thousands of computer systems which individually are more limited in their memory and processing power. On the other hand, grid computing  has some extra characteristics. It is concerned to efficient utilization of a pool of heterogeneous systems with optimal workload management utilizing an enterprise's entire computational resources( servers, networks, storage, and information) acting together to create one or more large pools of computing resources. There is no limitation of users, departments or originations in grid computing.

2. Grid computing is focused on the ability to support computation across multiple administrative domains that sets it apart from traditional distributed computing. Grids offer a way of using the information technology resources optimally inside an organization involving virtualization of computing resources. Its concept of  support for multiple administrative policies and security authentication and authorization mechanisms enables it to be distributed over a local, metropolitan, or wide-area network.

 

GOOD NIGHT....FRIENDS

Slides can be colorful and with some background pictures??

or only simple pages in slides???

plz explain dear..... thx

you have to keep ur file size maximum to 30MB so i don't think lots of pictures is a good idea.

ok

we have to add our video in Power point ... am i right?

no...

there will be two files to upload as our assignment.

one file of power-point slide show = Audio

second file of Video 3gp = Video

 

can you please tell me how can we make separate files of audio and video?
