Understanding Small Business Network Needs For this assignment, we are exploring the unique needs of micro – and small businesses. To begin, you are going to create a purchasing budget for a traditional network configuration. Then, you are going to go shopping again to find a cost for similar needs, but only through as many hosted / cloud services as possible to match the services supplied through equipment purchased to be onsite. Part 1 – Traditional Network Create a small business network for an independent retail store or restaurant. They are looking for a company to give them a cost for equipment and software purchases. Find pricing for: 1 Server (Design for RAID storage, 5 Users licenses, Data Backup, 8 GB of RAM min, Microsoft Server 2012 R2 Essentials, and Microsoft Exchange) 3 PCs with Monitor, included antivirus software solutions and backup solution for data stored on PC hard drive, Microsoft Office 2013 Home & Business version. Network Router and Firewall with Wireless (802.11n) Assume wiring and other infrastructure is already in place. Accounting Software: Quickbooks Pro The business wants to pump music into area where customers are, what solutions can you find for this? At this time, you are are not going to price this out, but a consultant would also be concerned with broadband connectivity, telephone service and even possibly a telephone system. Part 2 – Cloud Solution Take previous budget and compare it to what you can do when you outsource services to a hosted / cloud environment. Put these services in the Hosting Budget – include initial price and then on-going yearly cost. If cloud service not available, what alternate solutions can you use if you avoid purchasing a traditional server? Some of the costs and/or equipment may be the same from the first budget. 1. File Storage and Backup 2. Email Services 3. Website Hosting 4. Accounting Software 5. PC solutions (3) 6. Antivirus 7. Office Productivity Software (i.e. Microsoft Office) 8. Wireless Router Which solution would you recommend (Traditional Network vs. Cloud Solution) and why? I know that this is out of the comfort zone for some, but work with what you know, and see what you can come up with. I have opened up the Forum for this project for you to be able to share ideas with classmates.

Report on actions to reduce circulation of single-use plastic bags around the world

In recent years, increasing numbers of jurisdictions around the world have taken action to reduce reliance upon plastic bags. Plastic bag litter has come to symbolise the worst excesses of a throw-away consumerist society. Since 1977 when the supermarket industry first distributed plastic bags in the USA, they have been taken up in huge numbers across the world1. It is estimated that the world consumes 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags every year2. The plastic bag has been popular because of its extraordinary strength, and its lightweight properties have kept the cost of production and distribution low whilst making it versatile for the consumer3. Although the world was introduced to the plastic bag relatively recently, it is now regarded as essential as a vessel for carrying items across much of the world. The plastic bag is used daily by a diverse range of people including in urban centres of developed nations, impoverished towns in developing nations, and remote settlements. The vast majority of plastic bags in circulation are high density polyethylene (HDPE) bags with handles commonly referred to as ‘singlet’ plastic bags. They are most commonly distributed by supermarkets and takeaway outlets. The bag is generally referred to as the ‘single-use’ plastic bag because it is commonly used once only for a short period of time, such as to transport groceries from the shop to the home4....
