File Systems are how files, programs and documents are stored on a computer or on storage media like a CD or external hard drive.

Different operating systems may use different types of file storage file types and file storage architecture.

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. FileZilla and Cyberduck are commonly used software in SIS courses that use FTP to access the student servers at SIS.

You can find more about FTP, FileZilla, Cyberduck and more on our Tutorials page.

If you have issues accessing the student server you can contact C&IT for password issues and SIS Tech for further assistance.

SQL is typically introduced in the introductory technology courses at SIS and expanded on in Database Design and Development.
