VirtualDesignMaster Challenge 2

I know that the competitors have not been released for #vDM. I am really lucky to be one of these competitors.

The challenge 2 design requirements:

vDM Challenge 02

The hardest part of this design was deciding on a cloud solution. I have never attempted a design utilizing the public cloud. At least there was no US holiday this week,  this allow for more time to work on the design.

Once I finished the design on Saturday I reached out to Rob (@rnelson0) to take a look at my current design and make recommendation on what I needed to expand on(questions judges would ask).  There were a number of great questions that he had asked.

If everyone has not already guested, I jumped into Amazon Web Services (AWS).  Learning the basics of AWS in two days was fun but it gave me a very uneasy feeling. Putting together a design of something that was unknown less than 24 hours does not give me a good feeling.

This time I have submitted four hours early.  I just hope that I can make it past this round and into the next.  I have a feeling Open Stack is on the horizon.  That is another product that I am not very familiar with.  I just hope I can learn and improve my skills as a virtual designer.  I may not become the master but this is a great experience.

You can see some of these twitter conversions by following these two hash tags. #VirtualDesignMaster and #vDM
