Title:Cloud Deployment of Enterprise Systems on 3-Tier Architecture for Cost-Performance Balance
Abstract: It is widely accepted that cloud deployment of enterprise systems can achieve an optimal cost-performance balance. This presentation reports a successful case of hybrid cloud deployment of an enterprise system which used to handle a large volume of concurrent accesses and transactions at seasonal peaks. The enterprise system adopts a typical 3-tier architecture, comprising a web tier, an application tier and a back-end database tier. The web tier and application tier are deployed on hybrid cloud with the back-end databases resided on premises. The objective is to achieve an optimal cost-performance balance while attaining an acceptable level of resilience and security control. In this presentation, the design and implementation is described, and the challenges are discussed. Technical evaluation is conducted to show the cost and performance in different environmental settings. It is also discussed how an optimal cost-performance balance can be derived effectively.
