In this step, you will create and submit your consolidated Cloud Deployment Architecture Plan for email, software development, and backups and archiving.

The Cloud Deployment Architecture plan, which should be between eight and 10 pages, will consolidate the work that you have completed throughout the steps along with some additional elements (scope, executive summary, etc.) to create a comprehensive design for cloud deployment architecture for the selected “cloud ready” workloads. Sophia will present your work for approval at the executive meeting.

Use the Cloud Deployment Architecture Plan Template to write the Cloud Deployment Architecture Plan and submit the document via the dropbox below.

Check Your Evaluation Criteria

Before you submit your assignment, review the competencies below, which your instructor will use to evaluate your work. A good practice would be to use each competency as a self-check to confirm you have incorporated all of them.
