Choose 1 out of the 2 scenario choices. Use APA formatting sources, double-spaced and should be at least 5-7 pages including reference page and infographic. Include 3-4 sources.
Requirement: Cloud Head-to-Head Evaluation. Everyone wants to know which cloud provider is the “best” in terms of performance, scalability and cost. To answer the scenario question below, compare two cloud providers (pick from Amazon EC2, Google App Engine, Windows Azure or IBM cloud) in a variety of basic operations: time to start a virtual machine, CPU performance, upload/download speed, storage operations per second and so forth. (You don’t have to use the ones I provided; these are just examples).
Scenario #1: You are an IT analyst employed with Cloud Connections, Inc. Cloud Connections is a cloud computing company offering PaaS, Iaas, and Saas solutions to clients. You have been assigned to work with Grayson Healthcare Partners LLC, a large medical consortium that includes: Grayson Hospital, located in Grayson, Massachusetts Grayson Healthcare Partners satellite medical offices located in California and Florida Recently acquired Smith & Jones Hospital in Missouri Grayson Healthcare Partners LLC currently has a company-owned data center in Tempe, AZ, that acts as the primary data center.
They also have a company-owned hot site secondary data center in California. Grayson Healthcare Partners LLC offshores support of its systems to third party vendor Kapoor Technologies, Inc. based in Mumbai, India. Employees at Kapoor Technologies, Inc., have access to personal health information (PHI). Grayson Healthcare Partners LLC also has contracts with government agencies in Missouri and California.
Issues: A recent capacity planning review shows that servers are reaching their end of life, and if they are replaced, they will need more storage to handle the increased data load. Data centers in AZ and MO are consuming too much energy and will need to be modified to be more energy efficient. Grayson Healthcare Partners LLC has multiple restrictions and regulations because of the data they store/process, and because of their areas of operation. PHI is an attractive target for cybercriminals.
Increase efficiency and lower costs.
Adhere to applicable laws wherever data is stored and processed.
Provide confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.
Consolidate data from all sources.
Reduce hardware cost.
Project Proposal: Grayson Healthcare Partners LLC has reached out to Cloud Connections, Inc. to explore cloud computing as a solution to address their issues and goals. As the IT analyst assigned to this client, you are expected to present a project proposal to address the potential client’s needs.
Scenario #2 You are an IT analyst employed with Cloud Connections, Inc. Cloud Connections is a cloud computing company offering PaaS, Iaas, and Saas solutions to clients. You have been assigned to work with Ticketbooth; Ticketbooth is a ticket selling provider that sells tickets to concerts, sports event, and music gigs. Tickets are sold offline through ticket counters and online through a website called TicketBoothOnline.
Customers visiting TicketBoothOnline can browse list of available shows, find out more information on each show, and finally purchase tickets online. When a ticket is purchased, it’s reserved but will not be processed immediately. Other processes such as generating ticket and sending the generated ticket along with the receipt will be done asynchronously in a few minutes time.
Issue: During peak season (typically in July and December), TicketOnline suffered from heavy traffic that caused slow response time. The traffic for off-peak season is normally about 100,000 to 200,000 hits per day, with the average of 8 to 15 on-going shows. In peak season, the traffic may reach five to seven times more than off-peak season.
The customer expects a cost-effective solution in terms of the migration effort as well as the monthly running cost.
There aren’t any functional changes on the system. Meaning, the user (especially front-end user) should not see any differences in term of functionality.
As per policy, this propriety CRM system will not be moved to the cloud. The web service consumption should be consumed in secured manner.
Project Proposal: High-level architecture diagram how the system will look when moving to the cloud. Explanation of each component illustrated on the diagram. The migration processes, effort required, and potential challenges.
