Let's Discuss your Business Internet Infrastructure

We power your internet business systems, but what powers the internet?

What is the Internet's Infrastructure? The Internet was designed to be a decentralised network of computers that continued to provide communications infrastructures even if, any part or node of, that 'web' of computers was rendered offline for whatever reason.

Internet Infrastructure

Initially developed for communications security and reliability, so to decentralise any central weak point, that would not disrupt overall communications abilities. This was before the Worldwide Web and a time when we used numbers to connect nodes, not yet could we use an address like google.com, but 8.8.8.8 instead.

Enter a scientist wanting to make sharing of data easier. TimBL, whilst at a Physics lab, in Geneva, the centre for European nuclear research, wrote the first web client and server in 1990 on the NeXT computer system.

Unrelated, but interesting, the NeXT computer operating system became the basis of MacOS once Steve Jobs re-emerged back with Apple computers.

This was because Apple purchased NeXT in 1997 for $429 million (equivalent to $683 million in 2019), and 1.5 million shares of Apple stock. Its even in your Apple iPhone, Watch and TV today!

Anyway, we could now write simple markup language to share data between computer clients and servers. The World Wide Web, a baby, was born. We use decendants of the same www internet today, but, for so much more too.

So what is Internet Infrastructure?

The key points, explaining the Internets Infrastructure, are the Client, Server and Node parts. To access a service like a website a Client and Server is required. The Client is your web browser and the server is typically managed by a third party. When we say we power your business internet infrastucture we mean, we power our section of the Internets Servers and Addresses.

Sidenote: Not all internet services use a central server and some services are 100% peer to peer (node to node).
