CLOUD COMPUTING AND WEBB’S STORESExecutive SummaryOn the account of the benefits of virtualization and information technology in general, cloudcomputing provides all the necessary elements including the conveniences of mobility, resilienceand flexibility. In essence, cloud-based solutions will offer extended environments for ICTresources which are not only based on the digital platform but on the immediate needs of theuser. Furthermore, with cloud computing the users are able to access resources that they wouldpreviously not be able to access as they were either too expensive or unavailable. A similaroutcome is exhibited in this scenario, where Webb’s Stores requires an innovative and dynamicplan to manage its data systems. At the present moment, its data management procedure involvesa wide range of database centres that are continuously replicated across different regions withinAustralia and New Zealand. However, this replication process is not efficient as the organizationhas many operational challenges in expanding the content of the databases as well as theexpansion of the infrastructure itself. To solve these challenges, cloud computing is beingproposed based on a hybrid architecture that will combine both the in-house facilities with thoseof a service provider, the centre mark of this report.[Name][Student No.]2

CLOUD COMPUTING AND WEBB’S STORESTask 1a. Types of IaaS securityThere are many different types of security that can be implemented to protect the databaseinstance hosted on the IaaS infrastructure. These security systems or features are critical to thesuccess of the cloud facility as it hosted within a public domain where different operations,services and users exist. Therefore, the following security measures are proposed for the IaaSinstance:Tokenization or encryption: As stated above, all the communications and operations of the cloudfacility will exist within a public system which does not guarantee safety. In addition to this, theIaaS instance is most likely to be accessed by many individuals within the organization.Therefore, the content and the facilities used should be encrypted using high levels encryptionssuch as SHA and AES, while using passwords that are generated using the best accessprocedures[ CITATION Jos16 \l 1033 ].IaaS isolation: Secondly, the IaaS instance should be compartmentalised to contain intrusions incase they happen. In essence, this security feature would create system isolations similar to thoseof system partitions. The isolated sections would then be accessed by the users based on theirprivileges and access levels.Access policy and authentication: Finally, the access given to the users i.e. employees ofWebb’s Stores should be based on clear-cut policy. Again, this policy would stem from the rolesheld by the employees, offering different access privileges based on their requirements.Furthermore, their access would be monitored by intrusion detection system having createdpersonalized accounts that would be accessed using authentication procedures having accessmultiple factor[ CITATION Vor11 \l 1033 ].[Name][Student No.]4
