Abstract

The aim of this research is to optimize large scale network handling capabilities for large system inventories and to implement strategies for the purpose of reducing capital expenses. As computers become more and more networked, it is easier to share files among storage media. In addition, more bandwidth will be consumed by network flow because customers will be connected through networks which will transfer files and data, such as video files (MPEGn, AVI, WMV, etc.) to be watched at a customer's computer (host). Furthermore, these networks terminals will be used as mini warehouses to save files and data. Selective files will be transferred to the host computer depending on customers pre-requested profile and prioritization. The research will present techniques that optimize transfer storage media for the purpose of minimizing waiting time and hardware cost while maximizing efficiency and customer satisfaction.
