Question description

Review the requirements information you developed for your Good Foods grocery store cloud-based project. Good Foods wants to know the differences in performance metrics between the internal benchmarks of its current system and the external benchmarks of the cloud-based services you have reviewed.

Consider that the company currently connects all systems, stores, and employees over LANs (at each corporate site and store), VPNs (for remote access as needed), and a WAN (for access to organization-wide applications and services). It runs Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise on 10 operational servers and Microsoft 8 on 3,000 workstations (including desktops and laptops) for employees.

Each of the Windows Server 2008 Enterprise systems has two AMD processors, 32 GB of RAM, and optical hard drives. Each of the Microsoft 8 systems has a single Intel processor, 4 GB of RAM, and optical hard drives.

To complete this assignment, identify in a spreadsheet the differences between the Good Foods servers and workstations and the cloud-based services provided by at least two of the vendors listed below.

  • Salesforce
  • Google
  • Hewlett-Packard
  • IBM
  • Rackspace
  • Microsoft
  • Amazon

Include statistics for the following metrics:

Hardware

  • CPU computing power
  • Memory bandwidth

Storage

  • Input/Output operations per second (IOPS)

Networking

  • Bandwidth

Then, in a minimum of 4 pages, include the following information:

  • Summarize the performance results from your internal benchmark findings.
  • Identify which vendor(s) may be a fit for the Good Foods company, based on the company's current needs. Address processing speed, load testing practices, service consistency, and data availability and reliability in your review. Justify your recommendation.
  • Review and describe at least 2 reputable benchmarking tools you would recommend to Good Foods to use when evaluating the performance of its cloud-based services. Justify your recommendation by the value the tool would provide the company looking to assess its cloud-based solutions in the future.

Use APA formatting style (title page, references page, and in-text citations). For more information about APA formatting, please visit the Rasmussen Library Resources section on the Resources tab.

When this paper is complete you should have properly identified key metrics to be used in benchmarking the company's current system and potential cloud-based vendors.
