OPERATING SYSTEMS, DATABASE & WEB SERVERS

An operating system (or OS) is a group of computer programs, including device drivers, kernels, and other software that lets people interact with a computer. It manages computer hardware and software resources. It provides common services for computer programs. An OS can be small (like MenuetOS), or large (like Microsoft Windows). Different operating systems can be used for different purposes. Some are used for everyday things like on a personal computer. Others are mobile operating systems or are used for specialized work.

An operating system has many jobs. It makes sure that all the programs can use the CPU, system memory, displays, input devices, and other hardware. Some also give the user an interface to use a computer. An OS is also responsible for sending data to other computers or devices on a network. At Techsavanna Institute of Technology (TIT), will be offering the below for both entry, intermediate and expert level.

  •  Linux.
  •  Windows Server.
  •  Linux Administration.
  •  Shell Scripting.
  •  PowerShell.
  •  Active Directory.
  •  VMware VSphere.

A database is an organized collection of data, generally stored and accessed electronically from a computer system. Where databases are more complex they are often developed using formal design and modeling techniques. The database management system (DBMS) is the software that interacts with end users, applications, and the database itself to capture and analyze the data. The DBMS software additionally encompasses the core facilities provided to administer the database. The sum total of the database, the DBMS and the associated applications can be referred to as a “database system”. Often the term “database” is also used to loosely refer to any of the DBMS, the database system or an application associated with the database. At Techsavanna Institute of Technology (TIT), will be offering the below for both entry, intermediate and expert level.

  •  Apache Cassandra.
  •  MSSQL.
  •  CoakroachDB.
  •  Oracle DB.
  •  Maria.
  •  MySQL.
  •  Mongo.
  •  PostgreSQL.
  •  Rabbit MQ.
  •  Apache HTTPD/Tomcat/Glassfish
  •  Nginx.
  •  Active MQ.
  •  Redis.
