Operating System (OS)

An Operating System (OS) is a collection of software that manages computer hardware resources and provides common services for computer programs. The operating system is an essential component of the system software in a computer system. Application programs usually require an operating system to function.

Software Development

In Software Development, design is a phase of software life cycle. It is based on the requirements specification produced by the analysis of the requirements (analysis phase), the design defines how these requirements will be met, the structure that must be given to the software system to become a reality.

Software Creation and Development Process

The Process of Creating Software can become very complex, depending on its size, characteristics and criticality. Process is defined as the set of steps to follow to arrive at the solution of a problem or obtaining a product, in this particular case, to achieve a software product that solves a specific problem.

Programming - Structured Design

In Programming and algorithm design, the Structured Design aims to elaborate algorithms that comply with the modularity property, for this, given a problem that is intended to solve by the elaboration of a computer program, it is sought to divide said program into modules according to the principles of Design of Decomposition by successive refinements, creation of a modular Hierarchy and elaboration of Independent modules.

Java Programming Language

Java is a Computer Programming Language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers "Write Once, Run Anywhere" (WORA), meaning that code that runs on one platform does not need to be recompiled to run on another.

Computer Virus - Malicious Software Program (Malware)

A Computer Virus is a type of Malicious Software Program (Malware) that, when executed, replicates itself by modifying other computer programs and inserting its own code. Infected computer programs can include, as well, data files, or the "boot" sector of the hard drive. When this replication succeeds, the affected areas are then said to be "infected" with a computer virus.

Cloud Computing Management

Legacy management infrastructures, which are based on the concept of dedicated system relationships and architecture constructs, are not well suited to cloud environments where instances are continually launched and decommissioned. Instead, the dynamic nature of cloud computing requires monitoring and management tools that are adaptable, extensible and customizable.
