Question Description

Due Week 10 and worth 200 points 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. As part of your job, you must complete a 10-to-15 page paper that follows this project through the system development life cycle (SDLC). This assignment will require you to do the following: •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. ◦The Web architecture should describe and justify operating system choices (i.e., Linux, Apache, MYSQL, PHP, Windows, IIS, SQL, etc.). •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. •The chart should include a minimum of five (5) tasks, each with three (3) sub-tasks. •Explain and justify the system architecture you have selected. •Illustrate the system architecture using Visio or equivalent software. •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. •Discuss the support operations that the internally hosted Website will require after implementation. •Explain how you will evaluate the performance of the new site and the success of your project.

In order to move the old Website from a hosted solution that is external to one that is
internal, a redesign of the website would be necessary. Having in mind that redundancy is to be
avoided a backup site is also to be in place and readily available so as to serve as a failover if at
all in any case the min site falls, this is important because the company’s products should not be
offline in order not to lose customers. In addition to these the new site must have an architecture
that will allow the ordering of products online.

So that the new website is brought up smoothly a (SDLC) system development life cycle
is necessary so that no procedure is left un attended. The System Development Life Cycle that
fits appropriately will entail Planning, Requirement and analysis, Design, Coding, Testing,
maintenance and evolution (Roebuck, 2012).


Planning will entail taking a complete back up of the old website including all data base
information that holds data on the company’s missions, visions, management and its hierarchy,
customer service contacts’, testimonials, history, location of the retail and offices and most
importantly the product’s information ranging from prices to discounts available.

Another part included in the planning section is making of the changes to the websites so
as to enable customers to be able to order products online. Another vital thing is to also change
the domain’s sever name to incorporate internal hosting of the website.

Requirement and analysis



The requirements for the bringing up of the new website entails; Programmers who are
effective in all languages of programming ranging from CSS, CSS5, HTML etc., Database
experts having knowledge in data base programs such as MSQL, ACCESS etc. The computer
scientist should also have knowledge on website and design software’s such as the Dream
Weaver. The website designers should have knowledge about the building of fire walls to
counter external threats. Servers would also be necessary due to the fact that hosting is internal.
Hard drives should also be incorporated so as to back information and also store new
information. A backup system holding a backup website if in any case the main website falls.


When it comes to design graphic designers have to be incorporated so as to build up a
layout for the website, the layout should be attractive and user friendly that is easy to use and
enable the customer or rather the user to navigate with ease.


This is the most technical part of the website design because it is the live part of the
website which brings about the interaction between the customer or rather the user and the
company. Coding must be carefully done and ensure minimal error involvement so as to allow a
full functionality of the website.


After all of the above are implemented then testing of the website follows, this part of the
System Development Life Cycle is the most important part because it determines if the website



is ready to use or it should be attended to further. If at all expected functionalities of the websites
are not as expected or errors are present, then trouble shooting is carried out so as to spot the
areas that need to be corrected. After testing is satisfactory the website is hoisted and ma...
