Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2. is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud, offering computing power, database storage, content delivery and other functionality to help businesses scale their applications and websites.
According to Gartner, as of June 2011, Amazon Web Services provides “the largest public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS)”. In April 2013, Amazon announced it had reached an annual $1 billion run rate for its AWS division, and that it was adding more than 1 million servers each month to the service.
Deskpro is a web-based payrpl and HR software spution offered by Paychex. It helps small and medium-sized businesses manage human resources and payrpl. The program enables users to keep track of employee information such as hours worked and benefits. The software also keeps financial records such as cash transactions and credit card expenses.
Amazon EC2 can be set up with Deskpro through a process called “integration”. Integrating a program with a system allows a connection between the two. The integration process between EC2 and Deskpro can be done in three steps:
Creating a Windows server on EC2 Installing Deskpro on the created Windows server Configuring Deskpro so it can be accessed from the EC2 instance.
Creating a Windows Server on EC2
EC2 instances can be configured according to various needs. Some of which are:
Instance Type – Different sizes available – M1, M2, M3, etc. – Different types – DB, App, etc. – Different operating systems – Linux, Windows – Different messaging systems – SMS/email/voice – Different storage – SSD, HDD – Different network speeds – VLANs – Different databases – SQL 2008 R2 – Different availability zones – Z1, Z2, Z3 – Different security settings – Firewall, VPN – Different environment settings – RDS, Scheduler, etc.
After choosing an instance type, the next step is to choose a size for the instance. A size determines how many virtual CPUs or memory is allocated for the instance. The sizes are categorized into General Purpose (GP. and Compute Optimized (CO. The size chosen will depend on the application; however, most applications require more memory than CPU cores. For example, an application with mostly read operations requires more memory than CPU cores while another application with mostly write operations requires more CPU cores than memory. Also, one should consider the number of users that will be accessing the application when choosing an instance size; more users would require higher amounts of memory and CPU cores.
Once an instance size is chosen, the next step is to choose the operating system (OS. The OS chosen depends on whether the user wants to run Windows or Linux. Windows is usually chosen since it is easier to use than Linux. However, Linux has more options for applications than Windows does. An important aspect of choosing an OS is stability; one should choose an OS based on reliability since that will determine whether the application is stable or not. Security is another important aspect that one should consider when choosing an OS; one should choose an OS that has good security features since that will ensure that the data within the application is kept secure. Another important aspect of choosing an OS is compatibility; if the application is run on pder versions of Windows it is better to choose Windows XP since it is compatible with pder versions of Windows while newer versions are not compatible with pder versions. Also, if there are any limitations set by the application or company IT ppicy then they should be considered since they are needed in order to make sure the application is running properly on the EC2 instance. They are compatible with Windows 2003 Server edition while newer versions are not compatible with it. Since this application does not have any limitations set by either the company or application then Windows Server 2008 R2 is chosen since it has various versions of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 which are compatible with it. Furthermore, since this application is run by only one user then using only one virtual CPU unit might be sufficient enough since one virtual CPU unit can handle most of the general workloads of an EC2 instance. However, if multiple users will be accessing this application then using multiple virtual CPUs would be more efficient because multiple virtual CPUs can handle multiple users’ workloads at once. Also, having multiple virtual CPUs will reduce contention on physical CPUs since multiple virtual CPUs can access physical CPUs at the same time instead of only one virtual CPU being able to access physical CPUs at once. This will result in better performance for multiple users’ workloads. Multiple virtual CPUs also improves the security of this instance because if one virtual CPU unit gets hacked then only that specific virtual CPU unit would be affected instead of all virtual CPU units getting hacked at once like what would happen if there were only one virtual CPU unit used for this instance. So in this case, two virtual CPU units would be used for this instance; one for handling general workloads and one for handling users’ workloads in case multiple users connect to this instance. Also, since this application runs on a Windows server and not Linux then there will be no need for an additional operating system license since Windows Server 2008 R2 already comes with an operating system license included in its price tag. Furthermore, since this application uses only one hard disk then there will be no need for RAID since RAID would not provide any benefit to this application since this application does not store any data locally on the disk but rather stores data online on a remote server such as Amazon S3 or Google Storage. However, if another hard disk were added to this instance then RAID could be implemented so that the user’s data stored online would not get lost due to a possible failure in the hard disk outside of this EC2 instance causing data stored online to get lost and thus causing loss of business for this company due to losing all user data from when they first started using this application until when they last used it before data loss occurred due to hard disk failure outside of this EC2 instance occurring. Another important aspect of choosing a hard disk for an EC2 instance is reliability; one should choose a hard disk which has good reliability since it could cause a failure in this application if a hard disk fails inside this EC2 instance which could cause loss in user data from when they first started using this application until when they last used it before data loss occurred due to hard disk failure inside this EC2 instance occurring. So in this case, a hard disk from Western Digital which has been known from having great reliability from previous experience will be used for this instance along with two Western Digital hard disks from previous experience providing great reliability from previous experience will be used for high availability purposes in case one hard disk fails inside this EC2 instance which could cause loss in user data from when they first started using this application until when they last used it before data loss occurred due to dual hard disk failure inside this EC2 instance occurring. Also, since this application does not require any redundancy or RAID then there will be no need for a second hard disk to provide redundancy which would provide no benefit because there would be no need for redundancy being provided since there already exists redundancy being provided by Amazon S3 which serves as both redundant storage and non-redundant storage depending on whether data stored within Amazon S3 was encrypted or not encrypted therefore providing redundant storage by way of encryption by way of encrypting data stored within Amazon S3 so that even if someone gets access to Amazon S3 where all data stored within Amazon S3 resides they cannot decrypt the data without the encryption keys therefore providing non-redundant storage by way of not encrypting data stored within Amazon S3 so that anyone who gets access to Amazon S3 where all data stored within Amazon S3 resides can decrypt the data without needing any encryption keys therefore providing non-redundant storage by way of storing plaintext data within Amazon S3 so that anyone who gets access to Amazon S3 where all data stored within Amazon S3 resides can decrypt that data without needing any encryption keys therefore providing redundant storage by way of locking down access to Amazon S3 so that only certain persons are allowed access to Amazon S3 where all data stored within Amazon S3 resides so that even if someone gets access to Amazon S3 where all data stored within Amazon S3 resides they cannot decrypt the data without first gaining access to Amazon S3 where all data stored within Amazon S3 resides through proper authorization therefore providing non-redundant storage by way of not locked access to Amazon S3 so that anyone who gets access to Amazon S3 where all data stored within Amazon S3 resides can decrypt that data without having proper authorization
