NTC 300 Discussion Week 1 Class Discussion Questions
Discussion Question: Cloud Model System Requirements
You are working for a company initiating a cloud environment, and you are presenting cloud deployment options to the non-IT executives in your organization.
Describe the different system requirements for public, private, hybrid, and community cloud deployment models.
Include network components and segmentation, DMZ, and storage in your descriptions.
Post your descriptions to the discussion area.
Respond to at least one of your peers. In your response, consider sharing insights about the differences between the system requirements. If you have experience with the deployment models, you might want to share an experience that applies to working with that model. Alternatively, you may comment on something you learned from another peer’s post.
Discussion Question: Cloud-Based Solution Transition Process
You are working for an organization that is planning to migrate from an internal private network to a private cloud environment.
Describe the high-level steps that will be needed to complete the migration successfully, including change management and testing steps.
Post your response to the discussion area.
Respond to at least one of your peers. In your response, consider commending your peers for noting steps that would be especially critical to the success of the migration or for providing an answer that helped you learn or understand something. Alternatively, consider sharing experiences (as an IT professional or end-user) with migration difficulties and how they could have been avoided.
Discussion Question: Workload and Environmental Constraints
Define cloud computing workload and environmental constraints.
Discuss how these concepts affect the performance and the capability of the cloud instance. Consider the effects of each individually as well as combined.
Offer a solution to reduce cloud constraints on cloud performance.
Post your responses to the discussion area.
Respond to at least one of your peers. In your response, consider suggesting additional solutions of elasticity, shared resources, or infrastructure consolidation to reduce the constraints while highlighting the benefits of the selected solution.
