Event Title

Comparing Contemporary Infrastructure Services: Cloud and on-Premise

Session

Computer Science and Communication Engineering

Description

The purpose of this research is comparing contemporary infrastructure services tailored to a specific higher education institution. UBT which has variety of ICT services for students and academic staff, is chosen as the case study. Considering the growth of the organization, a reliable and secure environment for the current services and for the future purposes too should be designed. Building an infrastructure with such requirements is complex, therefore analyzing and deciding on which type of infrastructure will these services be based is highly challenging.

Considering the importance of services and data sensitivity that UBT holds on as a higher education institution, several criteria were addressed: availability, data security, data privacy, accessibility, and cost-effectiveness. This research focuses on comprehensive comparing of cloud and on-premise infrastructure services in order to build the most adaptive environment. Both types of infrastructure solutions have different advantages and disadvantages, therefore combining services is preferable for this case study.

The designed environment has proved that combining cloud and on-premise infrastructure services increases the level of services and efficiency. Insights and implementation details are provided.
