Question description

  • Term Paper: Website Migration Project
    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.
    The specific Course Learning Outcomes associated with this assignment are:
    • Design high-level logical system characteristics (user interface design, design of data, and information requirements).
    • Use contemporary CASE tools in process and data modeling.
    • Use technology and information resources to research issues in systems analysis and development.
    • Write clearly and concisely about Systems Analysis and Development topics using proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions.
    Grading for this assignment will be based on answer quality, logic/organization of the paper, and language and writing skills, using the following rubric. Click here to view the grading rubric..

Website Migration Project
One of the most important things related to Information Technology and Internet is that it
keeps on changing from time to time. Even today the E-Commerce websites work throughout the
year to improve the interface for easy use by the end consumers. The owner must ensure that
their company's website is secured and the risk of hacking is minimal. It is better to host the Ecommerce website internally to ensure that the data is safe and secure. In order to do the
numerous things needs to be considered for the easy Migration of website from externally hosted
site to the internal environment. The Tony's Chips website is focused to move from an externally
hosted solution to an internal one. The paper will provide the detailed analysis of all the tasks
that need to be done to accomplish the website migration.
Migration of system
In order to migrate from externally hosted services to the internal system, the first thing
required is the infrastructure. The infrastructure means all the hardware required to have smooth
functioning of the task. This includes the physical computers or mainframes where the execution
will be done. (Cocker, n.d.) Apart from this, the software service which will carry out the
programming on the hardware needs to be installed on the computer systems. The network
should also be properly configured, the connectivity of the wide area network as well as the
When all the required hardware, software is in place, the next will be to copy the content
of the external website to the internal system. The testing of the internal website with the help of
IP address will be done. The other things necessary for the migration are load balancers,



application servers, database servers, file servers and hardware storage. Once the testing is
completed the system administrator can change the record maintained in the DNS for the domain
name of the website hosted internally. The total time it will require to copy the content over the
DNS record to the internet is 2 to 3 days.
During the transition process, the traffic will be divided among the internal site as well as
the external site. It is also essential that the site should be available every time that means the site
should not be down. It doesn’t mean that the old site is of no use. It should be kept running.
Every week the new transactions recorded needs to be migrated to the new site. Though the task
is tedious, yet there will be zero downtime for the users. (Cocker, n.d.)

The architecture shown above is multi-tier architecture. The architecture will be hosted
internally to fulfill the growing needs of the business. T...
