Background: You are developing an Azure solution that individuals and small businesses will use to prepare and file tax related documents.
Business Requirements General: The solution must provide a way for customers to enter personal and demographic information. Customers must be able to upload income documents and related documents to the solution. The solution must provide reports and summary documents for customers in PDF format.
Scope and Device Accessibility: The solution must support two operational modes: On-Peak and Off-Peak. On-Peak is defined as the first quarter of a year. Off-Peak is defined as the other three quarters of a year. Customers must be able to access the solution by using desktop computers, laptop computers, mobile devices, and tablets.
High Availability and Business Continuity: The solution must be available at all times. When the solution transitions between Off-Peak mode and On-Peak mode, solution availability must not be affected. Disaster recovery must be established for the customers’ stored data.
Diagnostics: The solution must log relevant diagnostic data that can be used to troubleshoot the cloud service.
Scalability: The solution must scale out while transitioning from Off-Peak mode to On-Peak mode.
Cost. The solution must use cloud resources optimally to minimize operating costs.
Storage and Security. The solution must be secure to prevent any anonymous access (including read access) to the customers’ tax documents.
Cross-Premises Networking: The solution must extend the developers’ on-premises network into Azure.
Technical Requirements: The logical design for the solution is shown in the following exhibit.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS): The solution must have two roles: a web role and worker role. The web interface of the solution uses a web role to accept and send user input and any related documents. The worker role must access the stored data and prepare the tax documents in the background.
Compute: The solution must support a minimum of 10 role instances. When the solution is in On-Peak mode, each role instance must be allocated at least 6 GB of memory. The memory can be scaled down to 3 GB when the solution is in Off-Peak mode.
The solution must cache documents locally. The cache does not need to be refreshed during the lifecycle of the worker role. Role instances that are running should not be affected by topology changes such as an increase in instance count.
Storage: The web role must store documents in blob storage. A SQL database is used to store customer information. The worker role must use queues to process the final tax documents.
Performance and Scalability: When the solution is in Off-Peak mode, it must support at least 150 concurrent database sessions, and the maximum size of the database is 50 GB. When the solution is in On-Peak mode, it must support 750 concurrent database sessions, and the maximum size of the database is 300 GB. Geo-replication must be enabled and must be configurable by using the Azure management portal.
Software Prerequisites: The solution must install the software that is necessary to generate PDF documents on the server. The software will be provided as a Windows Installer package.
Debugging: Solution errors and warnings that occur in a web role must be logged. The worker role must log any crash dump files. Detailed information about errors and their context must be collected so that the environment in which errors occurred can be simulated locally.
Security: At the time that a customer’s tax information and documents are accepted, the solution must send an email to the customer. The email contains a secure hyperlink that the customer can use to upload any additional necessary documents. The customer is asked to upload these documents within 48 hours. If the customer does not upload the documents within 48 hours, the solution should not issue a new hyperlink. The solution must send an email to the customer to remind the customer to use the original hyperlink to upload any additional necessary documents.
Network Services: The solution must use a cross-premises secure network. The network must be configurable by using the Azure management portal.
Social Structure: Relevant portions of the solution files are shown in the following code segments. Line numbers in the code segments are included for reference only and include a two-character prefix that denotes the specific file to which they belong.

You are developing a web-based solution that students and teachers……

Background: You are developing a web-based solution that students and teachers can use to collaborate on written assignments. Teachers can also use the solution to detect potential plagiarism, and they can manage assignments and data by using locally accessible network shares.

Business Requirements: The solution consists of three parts: a website where students work on assignments and where teachers view and grade assignments, the plagiarism detection service, and a connector service to manage data by using a network share.

The system availability agreement states that operating hours are weekdays between midnight on Sunday and midnight on Friday.

Plagiarism Service: The plagiarism detection portion of the solution compares a new work against a repository of existing works.

The initial dataset contains a large database of existing works. Teachers upload additional works. In addition, the service itself searches for other works and adds those works to the repository.

Technical Requirements Website: The website for the solution must run on an Azure web role.

Plagiarism Service: The plagiarism detection service runs on an Azure worker role. The computation uses a random number generator. Certain values can result in an infinite loop, so if a particular work item takes longer than one hour to process, other instances of the service must be able to process the work item. Computation results are cached in local storage resources to reduce computation time.

Repository of Existing Works: The plagiarism detection service works by comparing student submissions against a repository of existing works by using a custom matching algorithm. The master copies of the works are stored in Azure blob storage.
A daily process synchronizes files between blob storage and a file share on a virtual machine (VM). As part of this synchronization, the Existing Work Repository object adds the files to Azure Cache to improve the display performance of the website. If a student’s submission is overdue, the Late property is set to the number of days that the work is overdue. Work files can be downloaded by using the Work action of the Teacher Controller object.

Network Connector: Clients can interact with files that are stored on the VM by using a network share. The network permissions are configured in a startup task in the plagiarism detection service.

Service Monitoring: The CPU of the system on which the plagiarism detection service runs usually limits the plagiarism detection service. However, certain combinations of input can cause memory issues, which results in decreased performance. The average time for a given computation is 45 seconds. Unexpected results during computations might cause a memory dump. Memory dump files are stored in the Windows temporary folder on the VM that hosts the worker role.

Security: Only valid users of the solution must be able to view content that users submit. Privacy regulations require that all content that users submit must be retained only in Azure Storage. All documents that students upload must be signed by using a certificate named DocCert that is installed in both the worker role and the web role.

Solution Development: You use Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 and the Azure emulator to develop and test both the compute component and the storage component. New versions of the solution must undergo testing by using production data.

Scaling: During non-operating hours, the plagiarism detection service should not use more than 40 CPU cores. During operating hours, the plagiarism detection service should automatically scale when 500 work items are waiting to be processed. To facilitate maintenance of the system, no plagiarism detection work should occur during non-operating hours. All ASP.NET MVC actions must support files that are up to 2 GB in size.

Biographical Information: Biographical information about students and teachers is stored in a Microsoft Azure SQL database. All services run in the US West region. The plagiarism detection service runs on Extra Large instances. The Azure worker role must fully utilize all available CPU cores.

Solution Structure: Relevant portions of the solution files are shown in the following code segments. Line numbers in the code segments are included for reference only and include a two-character prefix that denotes the specific file to which the line belongs.
