1) Architectural Overview Diagram- This is hard without you having specific concrete knowledge of specific technologies and COTS software. What I am wanting is similar to slide #72 through 74. I will make this one easy. Go hither out to the Internet and find 3 AODs for specific vendor solutions (that you may be interested in). IBM, HP, VMWare, Amazon, etc… all have plenty of AODs publicly available. Pick the three *best* examples you can find and then tell me why you think they are good examples.
2) Architectural Decisions- This one is actually more challenging. Ref: the simple template on slide #78. Create a single architectural decision based on this template. You might find some very real (and better) examples on-line.
One example to help clarify (in text format… pls use spreadsheet or table for yours)
Ref: AD001 Category: Availability
Issue: Database availability must meet 98.7% availability SLA or financial penalties result
Options: Active/Active, Active/Passive configurations exist
Decision: Configure DB cluster in Active/Active configuration
Rationale: Active/Passive does not meet SLA
3) Logical Operational Model- The hardest of the three… again, without a tangible system, technology, and product knowledge, this will be tough. Rather then keep things abstract, as the book does, I want you to get a feeling for the “real world”. So, just like in #1 above. Go hither out to the Internet and find 3 examples OR take the challenge and try to create a single fictitious example… your choice. There is a good example on slide 83.
