Enterprise Architecture

We’ll work with you to define your operational, infrastructural, and environmental requirements. Then, we’ll recommend one or more architectural designs to meet your availability and scalability needs. Considerations will include high availability versus cost, technology you use that must be incorporated into your architecture, integration needs, and compliance and security needs. We’ll review environmental requirements and operational practices, including:

  • Availability tiers
    • Definitions
    • Operational expectations for business continuity and disaster recovery
  • Application design patterns
    • Technologies used
    • Traffic routing patterns
  • Existing/target infrastructure
    • Internal/external/hybrid cloud
    • Physical/VM’s/containers
    • Environment utilization (e.g. test, qa, prod)
    • Datacenter utilization (e.g. active, passive, DR)
  • Operational integration needs
  • Compliance and security requirements
  • Application and data segmentation plans
  • Workload characteristics
    • OLTP/reporting
    • Read/Write ratios
