Have you ever started wondering about something and tried to find the answer, just out of curiosity?
Anyway, I have a basic understanding of how the internet works, but have been wondering where and how information on the internet is stored and accessed
I googled servers and read as much as I could understand of the Techno speak, that only geeks can understand. But I got the Gist of it
Then I read about main frame computers,and got a basic understanding of that
My questions are,
For example,Bleeping Computer,is a forum on the internet.Where does BCs information stored? Is it on a mainframe computer some where? or does it live on a server somewhere?
How is the information stored on either the computer/Server?
I really doubt there are a bunch of hard drives saving the info and I know they dont use big reals of magnetic tape like you see in the old computer history shows you see on history channel
OK so after reading about Servers and Mainframe computers, Then I started wondering where are all those servers stored? Do big businesses have them? or is there a big room filled with servers somewhere
I know the questions sound kind of silly to you tech savoy people, but I have been wondering about that for years,
Please dumb it down so I can understand.............Thanks
