Objectives

This assessment item relates to the unit learning outcomes 1 and 2 of the unit profile.

Enabling objectives

1.Acquire fundamental knowledge on cloud computing;

2.Become familiar with cloud service providers and their services;

3.Learn to evaluate cloud services and their uses for an application

General Information

The purpose of this assignment is to compare and contrast two cloud service providers and their services. By doing this assignment, you will acquire a good understanding of available cloud service providers and their service offerings. This will help you to determine appropriate services for developing smart applications.

What do you need to do?

The assignment requires you to do the following:

Identify four cloud service providers who offer PaaS (Platform as a Service) to develop applications.

Select one of the cloud service providers from your list for further investigation. If necessary, create a trial account and use all the different services it offers. Take screenshots to record some of those services while using them.

Compare and contrast between Bluemix (used in this unit) and the PaaS service of the cloud service provider you have chosen.

What do you need to submit?

You are required to submit a written report in a single Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) document. The report should contain 1500-2000 words excluding references with ±100 words slack. The report must contain the following sections (feel free to add one or more sections if necessary):

Cover page/title page, Table of contents and abstract

Introduction

Cloud service providers

oList all identified cloud service providers who offer PaaS (Platform as a Service) to develop applications

oSelect a service provider out of the list to compare with Bluemix and write two reasons to justify your choice

Comparison and contrast with Bluemix – this is the body of the report and should be written as detailed as possible. You can include screenshots and other media to enrich your report (you are not allowed to use screenshots and media content from internet – they must be your own. It is a good idea

to try the environment before your answer this section. This section must and only include comparison and contrast between IBM Bluemix and your chosen service provider for the following:

oServices offered for smart applications development such as Internet of Things (IoT) applications, Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications and so on.

The quality of design and navigation of the PaaS system.

Step by step process required to create and deploy a “Hello World” application.

oThe level of difficulties for development and deployment process of the cloud environment.

oCosting model offered by the providers. An example costing model can be found in the link below which you can use for the assignment. https://www.ibm.com/cloud-computing/bluemix/pricing

oHow easy to manage the application in the context of the following:

Allocate and upgrade resources like memory, space, etc.

Update/amend host URL, hosting data center and program/code of the application.

Your opinion - Based on your comparison and contrast of two cloud providers,

oWhich service provider performed better and why?

oPropose one area of improvement for each, you would like to see over their current services and why?

Plagiarism Checking Information

It is VERY important that you do not copy content directly from either the text or Internet resources: this assignment is to be in your own words. You will lose marks if you do not use your own words! Actual plagiarism will result in the instigation of the student misconduct process.

On uploading your assignment for the first time you will be able to immediately see your similarity score. However, a 24 hour delay exists for the release of similarity scores for the submission of successive items (drafts).

To be clear, the delay will not apply to your first draft which will receive a Turnitin similarity score as soon as possible.

This mandatory delay was implemented by Turnitin to minimise misuse of the similarity-checking service by students who were simply modifying their submissions to avoid match detection and without citing sources appropriately.

I ordered the literature review for my research project in rush delivery. I was not expecting that they would complete my order 2 hours before my chosen time. The quality is also nice. Thank you for help.

I had wasted so much money for poor quality work on other sites that I became despair to find a reliable one. I landed on Insta Research and finally, I am fully satisfied after ages from their quality of the work and instant response. Also, the rates are handy. Great going guys!
