You are employed as a cloud administrator at Cyber Domain Consultants, a firm specializing in Microsoft Azure cloud adoption support.
Your current client, a federal government agency, has hired your firm to help with the agency’s upcoming Azure cloud pilot. The agency has 1,000 employees and several regional offices throughout the country. The agency has a small data center but does not have space in its server room for any more racks, so a cloud solution would eliminate the need for additional hardware. In addition, the chief information officer wants to have the ability to set up a system quickly and be able to decommission it promptly. He also does not want to worry about upgrades, patches, or maintaining the servers. The CIO wants to explore hosting applications and services in the cloud.
Thus, the agency has budgeted $100,000 over the next year for a pilot program to test the feasibility of using Azure as the cloud provider.
Your first assignment is to develop a Comprehensive Cloud Plan for the agencyâ€s CIO. Follow the instructions in the next section to learn more about this assignment.
This week, you should begin working on your Comprehensive Cloud Plan, which is due next week.
The plan is for your client, a federal government agency, which is preparing for a Microsoft Azure cloud pilot. The Comprehensive Cloud Plan is the first of a two-part assignment for your clientâ€s chief information officer.
The plan should be submitted in a Word document. The Comprehensive Cloud Plan should be eight to 10 pages, including cover page, images or tables, and references.
Your plan should include the following information for the CIO:
- an executive summary to describe the requirements
- at least three benefits of using Azure
- a detailed explanation of the Azure cloud types and deployment models
- definition of common Azure terms: tenants, management groups, subscriptions, resource groups, and resources
- the significance of FedRAMP
- the Azure governance model
To get started, download the Project 1: Comprehensive Cloud Plan Template and follow the instructions in theâ€¯document.â€¯
â€¯Your cloud plan is due in Week 4.
