Tony’s Chips has recently been sold to a new independent company. The new company has hired you to manage a project that will move the old Website from an externally hosted solution to an internal one. The company’s leadership is very concerned about redundancy for their site, insisting that a back-up site be available as a failover in case the main site goes down. In addition, they want the site redesigned to allow customers to order products online.

The purpose of this paper is to:

    • Discuss what it will take to build a Web architecture, move an existing Website with minimal downtime, and provide a disaster recovery solution to ensure the site is always available.

    • Evaluate alternatives to the company self-hosting the site.

    • Build a Gantt chart using Microsoft Project or equivalent software, showing all tasks associated with implementing the Website. Gantt chart is attached, just insert it. A screen shot is fine.

    • Explain and justify the system architecture you have selected.

  • Create a use case that documents the event of a customer ordering a bag of chips from the new Website.
  • The use case should include a graphical representation using Visio or equivalent software and a text description of the events. Visio is attached, just insert it. A screen shot is fine.
    • Discuss the support operations that the internally hosted Website will require after implementation.

    • Explain how we will evaluate the performance of the new site and the success of our project.

      Web Architecture:

      Windows 8:  End users all have windows 8 PC’s with IE 10 and IE 11. All have office 2013and have a stable internet connection. (think about things such as, adobe reader and other software used in a typical office environment, in your windows 8 environment)
