Assessment Instructions

Avery has opened a gym and rehabilitation center specifically designed to provide training and recovery for service members who may have been injured while on duty. New members are provided a free fitness assessment to help determine their current fitness levels and to ascertain the extent of any injury to help onboard them into the program.

Avery has designed a basic system to help onboard these new gym members. When members are seen for the first time, they complete a simple gym membership form that asks for their name, address, phone number, and brief medical history, which are stored in the gym member file. They are also asked to schedule a Fitness Assessment.

Therapists or trainers must check the assessment calendar file for an available time. Members may also call to change their assessments. Because these assessments are scheduled in advance, Avery usually sends a reminder postcard and text message to each member one week before the appointment.

Assessment Requirements

screenshot sharing your experience completing this lab. Then, write a
final paragraph that summarizes your experience with Amazon Web

Part 2

Section 1:

company you work for today has several on-premise relational databases
that range from several hundred gigabytes to several terabytes in size.
Most of the databases are considered OLTP processing systems during the
daytime and batch processing at night. The database engines are Oracle
and SQL server, both database systems are using their latest versions.

a 2-page paper that discusses alternative database cloud solutions for
Oracle and SQL Server and then discuss the possible migration process
involved in moving from their local on-premise databases to their
respective database cloud solution. Would the Amazon DynamoDB be a good
fit? Why or why not?

Section 2:

work for a company that keeps up with product sales from thousands of
convenience stores throughout the United States. Hourly sales analysis
is critical for understanding customer trends and buying habits. This
data is also needed for its distributors to understand how to stock low
inventory levels in a cost effective and efficient manner. The problem
is that the data is lagging behind due to latency issues and most of the
systems are becoming out dated.

Write a 2-page paper that discusses the following:

  1. What type of Amazon RDS database instance could help solve their problem? Why?
  2. How would Amazon Read Replicas reduce Internet latency issues?
  3. Outside of Amazon, what other cloud solutions could help alleviate some of their current issues? Explain.

Section 3:

Write a college-level research paper that includes the following:

reading this week covers a cloud migration strategy. This Assignment is
going to expand your knowledge of cloud migration. Your Assignment is
to discuss the six parts of the migration strategy (Analysis;
Application Migration; Networking; Data Migration; Optimization and
Testing; and Operation and Management) and how your company will
successfully accomplish your migration to the cloud with the strategy
you propose. You can choose to write about a fictitious company or a
company you have knowledge of. Write a 2-page paper that follows the

Part 1 Instructions and Requirements

Scenario: Avery’s Gym has had some limited success providing athletic training and physical therapy…but she’s struggling a bit to expand her presence and her brand to expand her business. Avery is considering expanding her web presence and is interested in exploring what her competitors are doing. She thinks a great way to do that would be to build a website that could serve as a home for her marketing efforts. There are two parts to the assessment. First, research other similar sites to serve as a launching point for your creative efforts. Second, draft an original wireframe diagram using Visio that may serve as the starting point of a web system design project.

You can expand your research options to explore themes related to three main areas. Creativity is encouraged!

  • Gym or Physical Fitness center
  • Physical Therapy
  • Mental Health and Wellness centers

Because Avery is focused on crafting personalized training and experiences, she is looking for local inspiration. Choose a gym, physical fitness center, physical therapy site, or mental health and wellness facility that is close to you (preferably independent). Do not choose a large national business or chain as the starting point for your research.

Part A: Home Page Research
Find an appropriate corresponding website home page with the purpose of researching similar sites for inspiration for your own design. Provide the following information focusing primarily on the home page, features, and branding of the site. Think of this as a “walk through evaluation.” In addition to providing a URL and screenshot – write a brief analysis addressing some of the common elements listed below.

Provide the full URL of your inspiration.
Include a screenshot
Provide additional written documentation to accompany your research. Adding labels and annotation to the screenshot highlighting your analysis is preferred.
