NTC 302 University of Pheonix Wk 1 Amazon Relational Database Service PPT In Week 1, you discussed GIG, Inc.’s benefits and concerns with moving to the cloud. Last week, you created a high-level diagram of a system using built-in AWS that provided reliability, availability, and continuity across the migrated environment.
This week, choose one of the following database scenarios:
Transactional database (e.g., eCommerce)
Analytic database (query very large datasets)
Internet scale application (serves content and stores both structured or unstructured data)
Create a diagram in Microsoft® Visio® that applies built-in AWS that visualizes the chosen system and implementation steps.
Create a 6- to 8-slide presentation that outlines the following:
Overview of AWS database options
The best AWS database service for the chosen scenario
Support the decision with evidence
Outline the key features of the given database Running head: CLOUD MIGRATION
University of Phoenix
According to Shakya (2019), Cloud migration is the process of transferring digital
business into the cloud. The process involves movement of applications, IT processes and data
from one data center to another. Cloud migration requires advance work and a lot of preparation
just like moving from small office to a large office but at the end of it all the process leads to
greater flexibility and cost saving and thus worth all the efforts. There are benefits and
challenges while migrating the digital business into the cloud.
Cost reduction is one of the benefits. The cloud providers carter for the upgrades and
maintenance of IT operations and hence firms that move their digital business to the cloud
greatly reduce the amount spent on IT operation. In addition, cloud computing (Shakya, 2019).
In addition, cloud computing eliminates the need for software, onsite servers and staff and this
reduces the IT budget. It also saves the hardware utility and facilities expenses needed by
traditional computing by eliminating the company’s need to purchase equipment.
Cloud computing aids disaster recovery. Storing documents and systems on the cloud
offers a reliable safeguard in case of `an emergence. Natural and manmade disaster can
incapacitate important IT functions shut off power and cause damage to the equipment. Cloud
migration increases flexibility whereby users (customers and employees can work from
anywhere. This enables a company to expand into new territories, increase workers mobility and
provide their services to international audiences (Sarmah, 2019). This is very important
particularly in an era when workers desires flexibility in their work environment and schedules.
The high-level design options of cloud computing which are IaaS, PaaS and SaaS have
critical benefits to an organization. In IaaS cloud computing, data is managed and provided by
external provider (Singh, Sharma, Kumar & Yadav, 2016). It improves the company’s ability to
scale its solutions because it is virtualized. It also minimizes hardware maintenance cost and time
and improves flexibility because the hardware is managed externally and the IaaS systems can be
accessed remotely. The system reduces downtime because it depends on numerous data centers
and servers and if a certain hardware resource fails, others are ready to continue the slack.
PaaS allows a committed space to create and test applications like webpages. Its benefits
include, reduced costs as it allows users to rent the needed infrastructures they subscribe for. It
eradicates skills barrier since companies don’t have to hire specialists for to develop their
applications but instead can develop them through a web browser (Singh, Sharma, Kumar &
Yadav, 2016). It also increases collaborations since many developers from different places can
work together on the same project.
SaaS (cloud software) is a means for delivering software applications over the internet
via the cloud. Its benefit includes eradicating initial costs associated with software
implementation since it is normally subscription based (Singh, Sharma, Kumar & Yadav, 2016).
It offers flexibility because one can easily access applications at any location through an internet
connection. It safeguards the data since using software systems that are cloud connected
eradicates the vulnerability of keeping files to local devices. Lastly, the system allows a user to
terminate his or her contract when they no longer require the software. (stop using, stop paying).
As much as cloud migration has so many benefits, it’s also associated with potential
challenges. Availability and security are the major concerns about depending on cloud-oriented
services. System susceptibilities, ignorance and negligence from employees, Distributed-Denial-
of-service attacks, insufficient backups and loss of data, and cloud computing services that are
shared; are some of the security challenges. Openness of the cloud systems causes engineering,
social and phishing threats because a malicious user can access logging information and easily
break into the system since it is available from all locations (Lynch, 2016).
Cloud migration leads to loss of control of a service to the vender. It does not give
assurance that the features used today will have the same price tomorrow. The vendor can
overcharge and if the company’s clients are relying on that service, it might be forced to pay.
Accessing services and exporting company’s data may be limited where the company is unable
to make the payments (Calyptix, 2016).
In conclusion, cloud computing is a rapidly changing area that will surely play
progressively basic role for libraries, nonprofit, charities and their IT systems. Technological
changes mean that companies have to constantly assess their cloud solutions. As a result, a
current challenge facing cloud computing may be addressed six months from today and thus it
may inconvenience a current user.
