CIS 539 WEEK 10 DISCUSSION
Week 10 Discussion 1
“Application Scalability” Please respond to the following:
Elasticity is a key characteristic of the cloud computing model. Create a scenario where a company that offers cloud on-demand solutions would benefit from scaling its resources. Determine the types of metrics you would consider when scaling your cloud-based applications.
Imagine that you work for a company that has already migrated a large portion of its IT infrastructure to the cloud. Determine the type of scenario in which you would recommend back sourcing the company’s operations.
Week 10 Discussion 2
“The Future of the Cloud” Please respond to the following:
From the first e-Activity, discuss the future of the cloud in terms of “free services”. Describe what types of cloud services a new organization with minimal funds can use to create an infrastructure with minimal costs. Provide evidence that supports your answer.
From the second e-Activity, examine two current major technical growth constraints of the cloud. Predict whether these growth constraints will be solved in the near future, or if they will continue to be an issue. If you feel that there will be solutions, predict what these solutions will be. If you feel that these growth constraints will continue to be an issue, analyze why that may be.
