Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1.1 Review organisational data storage requirements and guidelines, and industry standards to determine need for cloud storage solutions within scope of own responsibilities

1.2 Identify and evaluate cloud storage options with respect to organisational data storage requirements

1.3 Identify data and security risks to evaluate cloud storage options for organisations

2. Develop an implementation plan for implementing cloud storage solutions

2.1 Select cloud storage options to satisfy organisational data storage requirements

2.2 Identify potential providers of cloud storage solutions and evaluate providers with respect to organisational data storage requirements

2.3 Develop and document an implementation plan for the cloud storage solution aligned to the organisation data storage requirements within scope of own responsibilities

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance but not explicit in the performance criteria.

Performance Evidence

The candidate must demonstrate the ability to complete the tasks outlined in the elements and performance criteria of this unit; including evidence of the ability to:

  • Determine the cloud storage needs of an organisation within the scope of own responsibilities including the identification of three cloud storage options through considering the following:
  • data
  • security
  • performance
  • usability
  • and broader organisational benefits and detriments
  • Review service level agreements (SLAs) for the three identified cloud storage options to identify hidden costs, ownership of data, disaster recovery and rights to retrieval, availability and performance, security standards and audit rights, data storage location and dispute mediation processes in the identification of potential cloud service providers
  • Evaluate the performance and usability of the three cloud storage options
  • Develop and document one cloud storage implementation plan for an organisation including the evaluation and selection of cloud storage solutions

Knowledge Evidence

The candidate must be able to demonstrate knowledge to complete the tasks outlined in the elements and performance criteria of this unit. This includes:

  • Key requirements of an ICT implementation plan
  • Business types that may have cloud storage requirements
  • Current trends and directions in information and communications technology (ICT), and the major industry technology standards used in cloud storage options
  • Advantages and disadvantages of cloud storage options and providers
  • Major themes relating to data and cyber security and their application within the organisational environment
  • Current industry hardware and software products and their general features, capabilities and application as relevant to cloud storage options
  • Characteristics relating to cloud storage that must be included in service level agreements
  • Costs and organisational impacts relevant to a cloud storage strategy
  • SLA terms related to service availability and performance

Assessment Conditions

Skills must be demonstrated in a workplace or simulated environment where conditions are typical of those in an ICT working environment or ICT workplace. This includes:

  • A site where cloud storage technologies may be used
  • Organisational data storage requirements and guidelines relating to the storage of information
  • Cloud storage options currently used in industry
  • Service level agreements (SLA) documentation relevant to cloud storage providers
  • Standards, guidelines, and organisational requirements relating to work health and safety (WHS) and sustainability

Assessors of this unit must satisfy the assessor requirements in applicable vocational education and training legislation, frameworks and/or standards.
