You have been asked for a cloud-based/IoT solution to replace a traditional client-server configuration. You may download the opensource version of MS Visio called Dia to create the network diagram or use the drawing features available in any Office Suite. Just make sure to label your components. The current technologies are as follows:
- A database server (Microsoft SQL)
- SplendidCRM running on a server (See http://www.splendidcrm.com/ )
- A Microsoft Exchange Server (For email)
- A Windows Server 2012 R2 running Web Server (IIS)
Your deliverables are:
- An assessment of the current configurations (Pros and Cons)
- Potential replacement technologies
- Proposed Network Diagram incorporating Cloud and IoT technologies (Do not neglect security measures such as firewalls, IDT, IDS, honeypots, DMZ, or encryption)
- A narration explaining your network diagram
Your well-written paper should meet the following requirements:
- Four to five pages in length, not including the title and reference pages.
- Label each section clearly.
- Include two external references in addition to the textbook. The Saudi Digital Library is a good source for these references.
- Your paper must follow Saudi Electronic University academic writing standards and APA style guidelines, citing references as appropriate.
You are strongly encouraged to submit all assignments to the Turnitin Originality Check prior to submitting them to your instructor for grading.
