Federal Azure Networking: 10 Wk Workshop

Applied Information Sciences

The approach, price, and plan required for your purpose-built modern Data Center.

It is key to recognize that, in order to move workloads to the cloud – whether you are extending your data center or building a native cloud environment – you are building a Modern Data Center. Networking is core to the Modern Data Center which must be resilient, predictable, scalable, and secure.

Our 10-week Azure Networking Workshop engagement starts by helping you to define networking use case requirements and design session scope and attendees. Then we'll work with SMEs and stakeholders on design, decisions, diagrams, and specifications. Finally, you'll walk away with an approach, pricing, and implementation plan ready for executive stakeholder sign off. By the end of this engagement, you’ll have the specifications required to build out a hybrid cloud network topology.

Engagement Approach

  • Education & Discovery (weeks 1-2): With the purpose of collecting use case requirements, Phase One will focus on an overview of the design sessions (Phase Two), their purpose / scoping, and collection of the proposed customer subject matter experts / decision makers required for each type of session. 

  • Stakeholder / SME Design (weeks 3-8): The information uncovered and artifacts or documentation produced in these sessions will provide the informed proposed approach, as well as the specifications to help you build your modern data center. Topics covered include hybrid networking, IP address planning, network governance, security, and compliance.

  • Design Review (weeks 9-10): Following the design sessions with security, networking SMEs, engineers, application teams, and decision-makers.  AIS will provide an approach, pricing, and an implementation plan ready for executive stakeholder sign off – all the necessary info you need to move forward.
