Cloud Computing

Regional Gardens Ltd is a company that runs a number of related gardening enterprises. It has a large display garden that it opens for public inspection a number of times a year. These enterprises include the Regional Gardens Nursery which sells plants and garden supplies to the public, and Regional Garden Planners which provides garden advice, design and consultancy services.

Regional Gardens has engaged you as a consultant to advise them on the use of Cloud Computing in their daily operations and they have asked you to prepare a report for their Board that looks at the following aspects of the proposal:

The first step of the board’s plan is to move the Regional Gardens website and associated web services into the cloud. However, they want some further information on:
Whether an IaaS or a PaaS model would be more appropriate for their web services and the advantages and disadvantages of each model in this case (15 marks).
The board also want their web services architecture to be more resilient than in the past, and they want you to recommend an architecture to achieve resiliency (15 marks).
In keeping with the their new security policy, the Board want to keep all client and transaction data in the Bathurst Data Centre and not in the cloud. This means that clients accessing the Regional Gardens web site and web services will need to have any data that they upload stored in the Bathurst Data Centre.
Describe to the Board how you would arrange to have client data that is uploaded to the Regional Gardens web site and services stored in the Bathurst Data Centre. (15 marks)
Describe the advantages and disadvantages of this approach. (15 marks)
Regional Gardens want to ensure that all their staff have the ability to access office automation, such as email, word processing and spreadsheet capabilities, as well as online storage for their files, whether they are in the office, at home, or deployed on a customer’s site in the field. The Regional Gardens board is very concerned to learn about the critical issues, other than cost, that may affect the supply of Cloud based office automation to their staff. You will need to prepare a report on the best way to provide office automation for Regional Gardens. Your report should:
Provide Regional Gardens with TWO different approaches to providing office automation to their staff; (10 marks)
Outline the major benefits and issues with each approach; (5 marks)
Provide a summary of your advice to this company along with your recommendation about which option to choose. (5 marks)
The garden design unit uses the DynaScape software suite, which is installed locally on their laptops, to design gardens and landscapes for their clients. The design staff often spend long periods at a clients property while collecting data and designing. The Board are uncertain if they should retain local installations of this software or subscribe to the SaaS version of DynaScape. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of both approaches. (20 marks)
Your report should not exceed 10 pages, excluding references.

Task 1 – DO NOT attempt this task if you have completed Task 2

Overview
This assessment item requires you to produce a short report for some of the Technical and Development staff of DSI.

Task
Regional Gardens is starting to migrate some of its applications and services to a public cloud. Many of the gardening staff would like to start a series of WordPress sites where they can share their knowledge and experience in different aspects of gardening. You have been asked to create a WordPress site on AWS where staff can share their gardening experiences and ask members of the public about gardening problems and issues that concern them.

You are to produce an instruction manual that describes:
How to create a WordPress instance on AWS (40 marks). This instruction manual must:
Describe all the steps that are required to access AWS and create a working WordPress instance,
Include screenshots of each step of the process, along with sufficient explanatory text to ensure that another user could follow the instructions without problems.
Your WordPress site should contain brief instructions for users on how to add comments and photos or screenshots to your site (30 marks).
These instructions must also be included in your instruction manual, along with a screenshot of the completed site.
Your instruction manual should also contain brief instructions on:
How you have secured your WordPress site (20 marks),
How you will provide users with secure access to your WordPress site (10 marks).
You will be given access to an AWS Classroom and an AWS Educate account. You will be able to access the AWS services that you need to create your WordPress site through the AWS classroom. You can use any method to create a WordPress site that you wish. AWS has a number of different approaches that you can use and you are free to choose one that suits yourself. There are now three possible paths to completing the WordPress instance for assignment 3. You are free to choose which ever of these that suit you:

Install on Linux. You will need to create an EC2 Linux instance and configure a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP). then install WordPress. The tutorial for the LAMP stack installation is at https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/install-LAMP.html, and the tutorial for installing WordPress is at https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/hosting-wordpress.html.
Install on Windows. You will need to create a EC2 Windows Server 2019 instance and install the Web Platform Installer, followed by the WordPress installation. The tutorial is at: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/WindowsGuide/EC2Win_CreateWordPressBlog.html.
Install on Elastic Beanstalk. You will set up a high availability WordPress site with an RDS database on Elastic Beanstalk. The tutorial is at https://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/latest/dg/php-hawordpress-tutorial.html

You are to create a header on your site that identifies it as your Regional Gardens garden advice site. You are not required to create or write any other text on your WordPress site. You are also required to implement secure access for members of the public, and you must have investigated this process and documented the steps required to implement it.

You are also strongly advised to shut down your site as soon as you have completed all tests and documentation.

Task 2 – DO NOT attempt this task if you have completed Task 1

Overview
This assessment item requires you to produce a short report for some of the Technical and Development staff of Regional Gardens.

Task
Regional Gardens is starting to migrate some of its applications and services to a public cloud. Many of the technical staff have had no experience in the Cloud and are concerned about this process. You have recommended to Regional Gardens management that they should consider the use of microservices as part of their application architecture. Regional Gardens now want you to redesign one of their monolithic applications as a microservice application

Regional Gardens has an old and image processing application. This is used by a number of Regional Gardens customers to upload images of existing gardens to be used for garden redesign. Regional Gardens create the new design for each customer and supply it to them when complete. The application has a number of modules as shown in Figure 1, below. Some of these modules may not need any development work done on them for long periods of time as their functions and outputs are relatively stable. Other modules though can be modified quite frequently as changes occur in the Industry. Other modules experience great peaks in workload which often slows services to Regional Gardens customers.

Figure 1: Regional Gardens Image Processing Application architecture

1. You are to assess each of the modules shown in Figure 1 above, and determine:
Which modules are likely to be relatively stable, a together with the reasons for this categorisation,
Which modules are likely to require frequent modification, together with the reasons for this categorisation,
Which modules are likely to experience workload peaks, together with the reasons for this categorisation.
2. Regional Gardens wants to transition to a microservice approach with the Image Processing Application. But they want to move in a phased approach so that they can handle the workload peaks first.
Which modules should be refactored first?
Discuss how a move to a microservice approach for these modules would resolve issues around workload peaks?
3. Discuss how a move to a microservice approach will improve Regional Gardens’ ability to maintain high availability for this application.

4. Draw a diagram that shows the architecture of the Image Processing Application after the transition to a microservice approach.

TASK
back to top
You must read the Regional Gardens Case Study in Interact before attempting this assignment

The Regional Gardens Board is considering the following strategic proposal:

They plan to retain their data centre solely for archival and long-term data storage. This would entail updating their data storage infrastructure, and moving all other infrastructure into the Cloud.
They plan to implement a multi-cloud strategy to prevent vendor lock-in and provide the ability to take advantage of price differentials.
They have now moved all their existing Web Services to a IaaS instance in the Cloud that has been designed to provide HA (High Availability) and a better degree of flexibility in supplying data to their customers and employees. This IaaS instance uses a number of Red Hat Enterprise Linux servers using Apache Tomcat.
They plan to change their current web software architecture to take advantage of the flexibility and scalability that can be gained by moving to a Microservices model (this would entail the use of such services as AWS Lambda or Azure Functions, Containers, Data Services, and Cloud Edge capability and monitoring). All Microservices are to be designed so that they can be easily moved from one cloud to another to suit their changing requirements.
They also plan to migrate their Garden Design LoB (Line of Business) applications to the cloud in order to increase the application’s flexibility and availability. The Garden Design LoB application suite will require:
A number of IaaS instances running Windows Server 2019
A number of PaaS instances for Microsoft SharePoint 2019 Enterprise
Regional Gardens would like to keep their gardening data sets in Australia.

The Regional Gardens Board is contemplating this strategy as a way to increase the company’s flexibility and responsiveness. The Board also expects to achieve significant savings by migrating to a Cloud based ICT infrastructure. They appreciate that this would entail retraining for:

Their existing ICT staff so that they can manage the new Cloud based infrastructure,
Their development staff so that they can start to develop using a Microservices model.
Regional Gardens has again approached you to advise them on this strategy. The Board is also concerned about how this strategy will affect their BCP (Business Continuity Plan) and their backup and disaster recovery strategies.

Tasks
You have been engaged to provide a report for Regional Gardens in their planned move to a Cloud and Microservices strategy.

Your task is to prepare a report for Regional Gardens that discusses the following:

Describe the Cloud architectures you would employ to assist Regional Gardens to meet the Board’s cloud strategy?
Should Regional Gardens adopt a hybrid Cloud approach, particularly for its data sets? What are the benefits and issues that would arise from this approach? (10 marks)
Describe each of the architectures that you would use to meet the Board’s hybrid cloud strategy, along with your reasons for deploying them. (15 marks)
Describe the benefits, critical points and issues that would be the likely result of the deployment of these architectures. (15 marks)
Describe the major Information Security risks that you see associated with the move to this Microservices strategy for Web Services. You should name and describe each risk that you identify, estimate its likelihood and consequence and then describe a possible control for the risk. This should be presented in a tabular form. (20 marks)
Discuss what you would recommend should be included in Regional Gardens’ BCP as a result of their adoption of a Cloud and Microservices approach. You will need to consider, as a minimum, the issues of application resilience, backup and disaster recovery in a Hybrid Cloud environment. (40 marks)
You are to provide a written report with the following headings:

Proposed Architectures for a Cloud approach
Threat and Risk Assessment report for Cloud and Microservices
BCP changes to meet a Cloud and Microservices approach

As a rough guide, the report should not be longer than about 5,000 words.
