Problem:

Week-1:Individual: Basic Cloud Overview
You are an IT Consultant working with a retail client. Your consulting team has designed and implemented the cloud for the retail client. Your supervisor has asked you to create a FAQ for this client’s local IT department which details the basics of cloud technology. This FAQ should help the organization’s local IT department understand the recent design and implementation of the cloud for their organization.

Different service types (private and public)
Pros and cons of the different service types
Cloud delivery methods
Cloud deployment models
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines, to include and not be limited to a cover with the proper formatting, an introduction to the scenario being planned and ensure focus to the specifics in the instructions.
 
Week-2.1:Individual: Virtualization Components
As a consultant for an IT company, your retail client is having trouble envisioning components of their proposed cloud environment. Your manager has tasked you with creating a diagram which provides a visual of the different components involved in the virtualization process.
Create a 1- to 2-page diagram using Visio® describing the different components involved in the virtualization process, such as virtual machine (VM) images, the hypervisor, and the virtualized infrastructure manager (VIM).
Note: You may also use free software, such as LucidChart, instead of Visio®.
