This makes it difficult to allocate costs and resources used by area, department or even by environment. Along with using AWS Organisations (OUs, SCPs); tagging deployed resources from the sandbox, to development, testing, and production, is necessary.

Amazon Web Services Cloud Computing

SFA is hosted on the Amazon Web Services Cloud Computing platform aws.amazon.com. Cloud Computing is essentially the virtualization of IT compute resources, and their remote usage. AWS is the market leading public cloud infrastructure. AWS is able to provide almost unlimited scalability, resilience, fail-over, and recovery. With over 100 Global data centers and many associated virtualized services, AWS allows a platform to be deployed to a global audience with reduced latency, and improved performance and throughput.

System Security

Security is a primary design principle and concern around Cloud Computing. AWS has been audited and certified by many dozens of security agencies and governmental agencies. Policies, logging and monitoring are built in to AWS cloud platform solutions to provide a dashboard and overview of the environment and any threats to data and applications.

Key parts of the SFA security model:

  • Network
  • Anti-Malware/Virus
  • Perimeter
  • Application Attack
  • Disaster Recovery
  • High Availability
  • Backup
Key principles: Zero Trust, Zero Touch, Encrypt everything. SFA’s infrastructure conforms to the above list of security best-practices.

In summary the SFA platform has:

  • Automated data backup
  • Automated Machine Image (application) backup
  • High Availability and Failover within AWS
  • Disaster Recovery within AWS
  • Disaster Recovery outside of AWS with Azure Cloud
  • Automated Monitoring and Logging
  • Security of access and all data

The system is composed of Administration and End User portals.

The End user portal is an online questionnaire accessed by members of the organization. The survey (questionnaire) is user id and password specific for protection purposes. The responses are saved per page. Users cannot continue to the next page unless the question is answered, which takes care of missing responses.

There is no real limit to how many end-users can use the survey during a defined period (example one day). The real challenge from a technological perspective, lies in the concurrent employee usage. Given current requirements and general usage patterns over 100 concurrent users (users acting on the system at exactly the same time, during the same minute); is supported as a threshold. The platform can be extended with various techniques to accommodate more concurrent users as necessary.
