Cloud service providers offer SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS models that can be included in your cloud computing strategy as part of this project. To support that requirement, please prepare an interim document that compares the SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS options you are considering as part of your cloud computing strategy.

Some specific components and questions to address for this document:

  1. What specific cloud services do you envision using as part of your cloud computing strategy? List the service and describe its overall function (i.e., what your organization will use it for) and which service model (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS) it falls into.
  2. For each service or component listed, provide a specific list of AWS-provided and customer-provided security responsibilities. It is acceptable to group selected AWS services with similar security responsibilities.
  3. What do you estimate the monthly cost will be for each service you have selected?
    1. For example, if you selected S3 as one of your storage solutions, what is the monthly cost estimate for storage and transfer? You will need to make some assumptions regarding how much data you want to store. You could also provide a range of storage options from 1GB growing to 100TB. Provide tables or graphic visualizations showing your estimates.
    1. You will need to provide similar analyses and calculations for database or other storage options, EC2 instances, and other cloud tools associated with a cost.
    1. Discuss estimated machine size requirements: t2.micro, t2.xlarge, or GPU instances while considering auto scaling and other cloud features.

Use the AWS pricing calculator ( to estimate a monthly cost for each of the services you envision using as part of your cloud strategy. Note, the cost calculator can feel a bit unwieldy at first use. However, it is okay to make assumptions to simplify your estimates. For example, when performing the S3 storage, you don’t need to complete all of the fields if you don’t fully understand them yet, or don’t have the data use estimate. Plug in a few values and click the calculate button to see the results. Some experimentation goes along way with this tool.

Submit your interim deliverable for feedback and review by your instructor. Use the

Compare SaaS ,Paas, and IaaS products exercise to record your results.
