· APIC, wants to investigate moving to a service-based model where many of its services would be supplied to its clients as a service, in addition to its plans to move to an IaaS model. There are several infrastructure models that could possibly be used to achieve this. Some of these models are:
1. Local hosted infrastructure and applications.
2. Local hosted infrastructure with some SaaS applications.
3. Hy
id infrastructure (some locally hosted infrastructure with some IaaS) and applications.
4. Hy
id infrastructure and applications with some SaaS applications.
5. Full IaaS model with some with SaaS apps.
6. Full SaaS model.
You are required to choose an infrastructure model that you think will achieve the APIC Roadmap;
Describe the benefits and drawbacks, excluding costs, of your chosen infrastructure model. Your description should take no more than two to 3 pages.

Security group name: GroupFirstname1 Firstname1 (example: GroupBobAlice)
Description: Security group for Lastname1Lastname2
Step 7: Review Instance Launch
In this assessment you will not log into your instance, so you do not require a key pair. Choose an existing key pair take a snapshot
Show Instance State:  running
Status Checks:  2/2 checks passed (Take a snapshot)

Question 1:    3

Question 3:    7
References:    9
Question 1:
For selecting the best option according to the needs of the organization it is very important to firstly understand the manner in which the locally hosted software and Software-as-a-service (SaaS) are different from each other. In just
ief and simple language we can say that locally hosted means there is own outright on that product and SaaS can be described as a paid service.
Another name for Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is software on demand in which internet is the source of providing access to the internet. There is no need for a license to be purchased or installing SaaS for using the services, all that is required to be done is pay for the amount of service that is used. This method is known as pay-as-you-go which makes it flexible to use and pay as per the need of the service. There is no restriction on the number of customer using the SaaS services; anyone who is interested in using the services only requires paying a monthly fee depending upon the usage.
SaaS can be considered as a reliable option which is even cost effective in starting but it become costly by the passing of time and even it is also free from the participation on technical grounds which are done by the customers.
In SaaS, same database is used to store the data related to all the customers but it doesn’t mean that the confidentiality of data is not maintained. No one have access to other client’s data and can only access their own data. Customization of the software as per the personal needs or requirements is not possible but little bit customization can be done according to the needs using the system and profile settings.
As there is no need to install any software while using SaaS so it can accessed from anywhere, all that is required is a proper and good internet connection for using it. There are many attractive points which make SaaS more appealing to the companies like the immediate access facility and low upfront costs. There is no need to do any kind software updates once the new version gets into the market as updates are same for all customers. It is also advantageous from the point of view of on-site maintenance as there is no need for any such maintenance.
On contrary to SaaS, if we talk about the locally hosted software then it means that the software has been purchased by the customer and is owner of the software. In this system each and every customer is treated separate from each other with their own databases, software and servers. It is required to get the software installed into the system by the centre available for providing hosting services. This pattern is not costly and is cost effective in long run but the upfront cost is high. This software can be customized as per the needs of the customers (twentyfourseven and Maccabe, 2022). There is a requirement for on-site maintenance and as the backup of data is done on a regular basis so it has good security.
The critical points, that an enterprise would need to consider in choosing to migrate from a locally hosted service to a SaaS service:
· Licenses: there are multiple locations from which the business is operated at the same time when a company plans to move to cloud. Therefore the licenses which the company cu
ently has might not be relevant for migrating to SaaS. So it would be required to check into it.
· Downtime: there is many times when the server does not work properly as it’s down which affects the working of the business. So it is important and should be kept in mind to include a compensation for downtime clause with the provider of the service.
· Software compatibility: a check should be done regarding the compatibility of the software that cu
ently exists in the business as the software that...
