NTC 300 Week 1 Drotos Engineering: Cloud Solution Proposal
 

Read the Drotos Engineering Cloud Migration Project Overview.

Imagine you are the only IT employee at Drotos Engineering. After discussing the company needs with the company owner, referred to as Senior, you recommended the company transition to a cloud-based IT management solution. Senior directed you to create a high-level overview of what it would take to migrate the company’s internal, private network to a cloud-based solution.

Create the following materials to review with Senior:

 

 

 

A diagram of the current network environment
 

 

A diagram of the proposed cloud-based network environment with annotations of what is new or changed from the current environment
 

 

A 3- to 4-page summary that includes: 

 

 

 

A rationale for transitioning from the traditional network environment to a cloud-based environment (i.e., how the cloud-based solution is better than trying to modify and adapt the current network to meet the business needs)
 

 

The identification of new or different hardware requirements to support the cloud-based environment
 

 

A listing of the high-level steps to implement the recommended cloud-based solution 

 

 

 

A listing of additional considerations or information needed to create a more thorough listing
 

 

 

 
 

 

A final opinion as to whether the proposal will address all of the business’s needs or whether additional modifications or solutions will eventually be needed
 

 

 

 
 

 

 

Create your diagrams in Microsoft® Visio® and write your summary in Microsoft® Word.

Note: You will use the proposed cloud-based network diagram in the Week 2 individual assignment, Drotos Engineering: Security Considerations.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines, to include and not be limited to a cover with the proper formatting, an introduction to the scenario being planned and ensure focus to the specifics in the instructions.

Submit your assignment either submitting individual documents or compressing into a .ZIP file

NTC 300 Week 3 Drotos Engineering: Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
 

Resource: Drotos Engineering Cloud Migration Project Overview

The Drotos Engineering cloud migration project is proceeding. Your applications require a 99.9% uptime. You are now working on the disaster recovery and business continuity plan to ensure that occurs.

Senior wants to be assured Drotos Engineering is prepared to handle any disaster or business interruptions. Therefore, you decide to prepare a summary of your plan and a sample procedure from your disaster recovery and business continuity (DR/BC) plan to review together.

Part 1

Write a 3-page summary in Microsoft® Word of your DR/BC plan that includes:

 

 

 

An overview of your patch management strategy to ensure your systems and applications are up-to-date
 

 

An overview of your backup strategy to ensure applications and all company data is available, including: 

 

 

 

A schedule or plan for full and incremental backups
 

 

The planned use of automated tools
 

 

 

 
 

 

The types of disasters and potential causes of business interruption covered by your plan
 

 

 

Part 2

Select an event covered by your DR/BC plan.

Write a high-level DR/BC plan process that would be included in your DR/BC playbook for this event.

 

 

 

Use the DR/BC Playbook Procedure Template to document your processes.
 

 

Each process should be no longer than one page. Outline the DR approach on one page and the BC approach on the second.
 

 

 

Refer to the Sample DR/BC Playbook Procedure as needed.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines, to include and not be limited to a cover with the proper formatting, an introduction to the scenario being planned and ensure focus to the specifics in the instructions.

Submit your assignment in the assignments tab as either individual documents (make sure your name and submission date are on the Template) or compress into a .ZIP file. HINT: When using the template remove all “university” or bracketed ( [ ] ) information and replace with your own words as necessary.

 

 
 

 

NTC 300 Week 4 Drotos Engineering: Cloud Management
 

Resource: Drotos Engineering Cloud Migration Project Overview

As you are the only IT employee in Drotos Engineering, you persuaded Senior that you need outsourcing support to design, deploy, and maintain the cloud-based solution for your applications.

Note: You must include an introduction and conclusion for each of the following documents. The introduction provides context for what the reader will read and the conclusion is a summary statement of what was presented.

Part 1

As the IT liaison, Senior tasked you with defining the technical components of the SLA with the consultants.

Write a 2-page summary that includes:

 

 

 

A listing of the Drotos Engineering IT manager and vendor roles and responsibilities
 

 

A summary (in narrative or table format) with the acceptable metrics and measurements ranges, with definitions and rationale that will ensure optimum performance. Include minimum and maximum information for: 

 

 

 

Disk space use (e.g., for each system, the minimum amount of disk space required by the application/person/system to run efficiently)
 

 

Response time
 

 

Uptime
 

 

 

 
 

 

Vendor to Drotos Engineering reporting requirements
 

 

 

Part 2

During the first few weeks your SLA is in place, you work with the consultant to resolve performance and optimization issues that arise. Your decisions will help create a template for the vendor to follow with later issues. Two issues arose that required documentation.

Issue 1

The baseline performance for your system is 35% below what was projected to access data and store data. Monitoring indicates that the source of the poor performance could be the network, disk, or CPU.

Write a 1- to 2-page description of how the vendor should address the issue using the following resource provisioning/deprovisioning options:

 

 

 

Usage patterns
 

 

Cloud bursting
 

 

Extending cloud scope, storage, and virtual machines
 

 

Application life cycle
 

 

Business need changes
 

 

 

Issue 2

Your engineering applications are subject to many regulations. You learn that a new security regulation requires the assurance of a 3-second response time to ensure the user’s flow of thought remains uninterrupted because of the sensitive nature of the data on the system.

Write a 1- to 2-page description that defines and describes the appropriate provisioning techniques the vendor is to follow to address the new regulation and to ensure your customers’ and internal data remain protected.

Compress the following files into a ZIP file:

 

 

 

SLA Content Summary
 

 

Issue 1 Provisioning Description
 

 

Issue 2 Provisioning Description
 

 

 

For each submission remember your Word document should be in APA format and any diagrams or narratives should be embedded within the document.

Submit your assignment.

Drotos Engineering Cloud Migration Project Overview
 

 

Section 16, “Flowcharts,” of “Visio® 2007 Essential Training” with David Rivers from Lynda.com®
 

 

 

The Drotos Engineering cloud migration project went well. The company is also doing well, and Senior decided to purchase another engineering application to enable the company to pursue another line of business.

Looking back at the initial cloud migration project, you realize that having some troubleshooting documentation and guidance would have been helpful. You decide to create a troubleshooting flow chart, or decision tree, to help with the deployment and implementation of the new software.

Part 1

Use Microsoft® Visio® to create a flow chart that will help identify and resolve issues related to:

 

 

 

Deploying a new cloud-based application
 

 

Access and performance issues related to a cloud-based application
 

 

 

Incorporate the standard cloud troubleshooting methodology and sound logic in your flow charts.

Part 2

Annotate the flow chart to show paths to follow for troubleshooting:

 

 

 

An issue related to the deployment of an application on a server
 

 

An employee not being able to access an application
 

 

 

Note: You may review Section 16, “Flowcharts,” of “Visio® 2007 Essential Training” with David Rivers from Lynda.com® if you are unfamiliar with creating flow charts in Microsoft® Visio®.

Part 3

Provide a 1-page overview in Microsoft® Word of the flow chart.

Include the following in your overview:

 

 

 

The purpose of the flow chart
 

 

High-level instructions of how to use the flow chart
 

 

 

Format should be the submission of a single document (with Visio embedded) or multiple documents where the narrative in the Word document is complimentary of the flow charts submitted as Visio documents. You may submit your documents individually or compress your diagram and summary into a ZIP file.

Submit your assignment.
