server virtualization and cloud computing



This week, you have read about server virtualization and cloud  computing in chapter 6 of your textbook. For your written assignment  this week, complete a case study of the organization you work for (use a  hypothetical or “other” organization if more applicable) that will  address the following prompts:

• Describe the organization’s environment, and evaluate its preparedness for virtualization.

• Explain Microsoft (or another product) licensing for virtualized environments.

•  Recommend a configuration for shared storage; make sure to discuss the  need for high availability and redundancy for virtualization for the  organization.

• Explain Windows Azure capabilities for virtual  machines and managing a hybrid cloud, including Windows Azure’s Internet  as a Service (IaaS) and storage capabilities

Make a recommendation for cloud computer use in the organization, including a justification for your recommendations.

Submit your midterm research paper as a single document. Your paper should meet the following requirements:

• Be approximately four to six pages in length (1200-1800 words), not including the required cover page and reference page.

• Follow APA7 guidelines. Your paper should include an introduction, a body with fully developed content, and a conclusion.

•  Support your answers with the readings from the course and at least two  scholarly journal articles to support your positions, claims, and  observations, in addition to your textbook. The UC Library is a great  place to find resources.

• Be clearly and well-written, concise,  and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. You are being  graded in part on the quality of your writing.
