Can someone please help me with my project:
Server Deployment Proposal
Each student will create a detailed, organized, unified technical solution
given the scenario described below. The submission will be in a written format,
with at least one diagram, and may include additional diagrams, charts or
tables. The assignment is meant for students to enhance their mastery of the
material and to provide a creative and realistic way in which to apply
knowledge from this course.
Worldwide Advertising, Inc. (referred to as “WAI”) has hired you as an IT
consultant for implementing their Windows network infrastructure. WAI is a new
advertising firm, and they are currently hiring staff, establishing two
locations, and have a need to get their internal IT services configured. They do
not yet have an IT staff, but when they do, the IT staff will take over all
aspects of IT administration. You are required to supply WAI with a solution
which describes the implementation and configuration of their core IT services.
Cost is not a significant concern – WAI wishes to implement the “right”
solution to fit their needs now and for the next 2-3 years.
There are several details about WAI which will have an
impact on your choices:
WAI will start with 90 employees, in the
Executives (9 employees) – manage and run the
Accounts and Sales Department (15 employees) –
perform market research and maintain accounts
Creative, Media and Production Department (49
employees) – advertising
Human Resources and Finances (12 employees) –
perform HR and financial duties
IT (5 employees) – manage IT for the company
WAI will have two sites, one in Los Angeles and
one in New York. Most staff will be located in LA, with at least 1 person from
each of the departments above located in NY.
Networking equipment is already in place for
both sites. A secure tunnel (using IPSec) will be established between the two
sites so that inter-site traffic will be securely tunneled over the Internet.
You may make whatever other assumptions you wish about intra-and inter-site
Security mechanisms (e.g., firewalls, intrusion
detection) will be handled separately, and there is no need to describe them.
Some departments will want their data to remain
private from other departments (e.g., Finances personnel will not want
Production staff to see the company’s financial details). Your team may make
assumptions about how data should be shared or kept private.
Assumptions can be made regarding any
information not included here; all assumptions should be identified, however.
Topics to CoverYour document should cover the content presented in the course. The
outline below contains recommended points to cover. You are free to add other
Describe the technical and business reasons for each
choice, citing other resources as appropriate.
The Windows Server 2012 operating system should be used
for all aspects of the solution.
The topics include:
New Features of
Windows Server 2012
Describe new features of Windows Server 2012
that WAI can take advantages of.
How many total servers are needed? Which roles
will be combined?
What edition of Windows will be used for each
server (e.g., Standard, Datacenter)?
Will Server Core be used on any servers?
Where are each of the servers located (which of
the two sites)?
How will the servers be deployed? Manual or
Number of AD domains?
Will there be any Read-Only Domain Controllers?
How will the second site factor into domain
controller placement? How will AD sites be configured?
How will AD organizational units be organized
(considering how group policy will be used and users will be organized)?
DNS and DHCP
DHCP scope design (e.g., lease times, number of
scopes, address range)
Will a form of DHCP fault tolerance be
Will DHCP reservations be used for servers?
DNS namespace design (e.g., domain name(s)
chosen, split DNS for Internet/intranet, zones)
How will DNS be handled for the second site?
How will applications be deployed? If using
Group Policy, what are the details on how Group Policy will be used to deploy
the software? Which software applications will likely be needed?
File and Printer
What shares might be needed?
How will quotas/FSRM be configures?
Assignment RequirementsThere are specific requirements for the assignment: The final
submission should contain at least 6 pages’ worth of text written by the
student (not counting title page, images, diagrams, tables, or quotations), but
may be longer, not to exceed approximately 10 pages’ worth of student-supplied
text. (With the required diagram, and other images, title page, etc., the final
submission may end up being more than 10 pages in length.) It must be
double-spaced, have 1-inch margins, and use 12-point Times New Roman or
10-point Arial/Helvetica font. A title page is required; APA format for the
title page is optional.
At least one diagram must be included (not
counted towards the minimum length described above); this could be a diagram
describing Active Directory components, DHCP/DNS design, file share hierarchy,
or anything else that is worth displaying graphically to enhance the reader’s
understanding of the proposal. Additional diagrams, images, or tables are welcome.
The submission must cover all of the 6 major
topics outlined above. Each choice should be explained with technical and
business reasoning. The solution should be reasonably detailed. Additional
topics may be covered as desired.
The structure of the final submission is
flexible. There is no specific format required, although it should be organized
logically and represent a single, unified solution. It is likely that the
format will include separate sections for each of the 6 topics required, as
well as a summary.
At least two non-textbook, non-LabSim,
non-Wikipedia reference is required; preferably, this would be a “best
practice” guide or similar content from Microsoft or an experienced provider of
Be sure to properly quote or cite any sources
used. APA format is required for in-text citations and the list of works cited
at the end. If plagiarism is found, then there will be a penalty
to the grade.
