Abstrakt

Cloud computing in the technological hype cycle has reached the increasing slope of enlightenment. A serious organisation, no matter its size, can no longer afford to ignore the trend that has the potential to increase their business value. It is clear that failure to adopt some form of cloud computing technology today only delays the inevitable in order to stay competitive or be more cost-efficient. The decision to adopt cloud computing however has implications beyond the technical acquisition of an Internet product, raising concerns such as financial impact, organisational readiness, regulatory compliance and security. Depending on the business of the organisation and the geographical context of its operations, the cloud adoption experience could raise further concerns such as Internet connectivity of reasonable speed, cost and reliability, a typical situation sub-Saharan African economies experience. In this paper, the case of a healthcare institution is examined from the perspectives of requirements specification and redesign of an existing network infrastructure to build a hybrid cloud architecture. From the designed constraints, a reasonably successful infrastructure was redesigned together with the testing of selected quality metrics to address cloud adoption concerns of large multi-facility healthcare institutions.
