Use this document as guidance to help complete SSC Appendix 3 slides

Security Profile, Availability, and Disaster Recovery Information:
Security Profile: Provide the security profile for the solution (eg. PBMM, PBHM, etc). If the solution includes multiple components with different security profiles, include all security profiles.
Maximum Allowable Unplanned downtime: provide expected maximum allowable downtime in hours per year if system is expected to run 24/7, or general availability hours if the system is expected to run during business hours and have downtime otherwise.
Availability requirements: Provide an estimate for availability requirements: Medium availability is 95%, High availability is >=99%
Disaster Recovery: select expected disaster recovery needs

• Hot Site: Facility and equipment are set up and ready to go, with either synchronous or asynchronous data replication. It is available and running 24/7.
• Warm Site: Equipment is available and configured. Latest application data must loaded or restored.
• Cold Site: Available space/facility where you need to set up the equipment, connectivity, load the software and data.
• None: best effort disaster recovery.

Authentication: select the authentication method from the options below. DCAM, ICM/ECM, or Sign in Canada are the preferred methods:

• DCAM (Active Directory solution using ADFS)
• ICM/ECM – GCKey, MyKey
• Sign in Canada
• Other: Specify the authentication method if none of the above are being used.

Hosting Solution: Specify all hosting options:

o End State Data Centre (specify EDC)
o Legacy Data Centre (specify specific data centre)
o Cloud – specify cloud solution

Workload Migration: Is any workload migrating out of legacy data centres: Yes/No
Network Details:

Network Connectivity: Specify the network(s) the solution will use: eg. GCNet, Science Net, GCSI, etc.
Solution Sensitivity to Network Delay:
o Very High (high quality or large number of voice, video and real-time streaming traffic)
o High (suitable for voice and video, sensitive synchronous applications such as Citrix)
o Medium (suitable for some synchronous applications)
o Low (suitable for asynchronous applications)
o Provide the minimum Required Bandwidth

Network Geographical Distribution: Specify the distribution of the solution:

o Low geographical spread (100 km or less) between application hosting and users
o Moderate geographical spread (500 km or less) between application hosting and users
o Regional geographical spread (up to 1500 km) between application hosting and users
o National geographical spread (Canada-wide) between application hosting and users
o Global spread between application hosting and users

Network Traffic: Select all applicable options for the kind of traffic expected over the network for this solution

o Video
o Audio
o Data
o Interactive (APIs)

Cloud Details:

• List the solution’s relevant Cloud Usage Profiles
• List the solution’s relevant Cloud Connection Patterns
• Is SCED Needed? Yes/No
• Has the department been prioritized? If Yes, on which architecture?
