This pack of MIS 589 Week 1 dq2 – The Application Layer covers:
The textbook and lecture explain that there are four fundamental application architectures in use today: host-based architectures, client-based architectures, client-server architectures, and peer-to-peer architectures. Do some research in the DeVry Virtual Library (Under Course Home in the Student Resources section). Based on your research, what application architectures are most prevalent today? Under what architecture would you classify technologies such as virtualization, cloud computing, and Web-based applications? Last, what factors are involved in selecting the architecture that is right for your organization?
