Summary
The Genome4U project is a large scale project being put forth by a large United states University. They
want to build a database that has genomic, traits, and medical data from 100,000 volunteers. The data
base well then be used to aid in the fields of computer science, mathematicians, physicists, social
science, and other research. The database is open to the other researchers to access as well. The
network needs to be able to support the database and the traffic related to the research being done.

Section 1: Network Layout


This section outlines the network that has been designed. It includes the overall view of the network and
details on key parts of the network. It details the servers, Vlans, and security aspects of the network.

1-A: Network Overview


The network has four main areas. Each area is covered in more detail section 1 of this document. Figure
1 shows an overview of the network design. Area one is the different Vlans that make up the work
groups within the network. Area 2 is the servers on the network. Area 3 is the security of the network.

Figure 1: Network Diagram

1-B: Servers
The network has four clusters of servers. The first cluster of serves contains all the genome data that
was collected from the volunteers. The genome data is the only data that is kept on these servers. The
second cluster of servers contains the personal information of the volunteers. This information is not
related to the genome research. The third cluster is used to hold the research data from the genome
experiments. The fourth cluster is an onsite back up system for the network. Figure 2 shows a diagram
of the clusters.

1-C: Vlans
The local network connected to the database has 5 Vlans. Vlan1 is computer science, Vlan2 is
mathematicians, Vlan3 is physicists, Vlan4 is social science, and Vlan5 is for other researchers.

1-D: Security
Do to the type of information that is stored in the on the data there is a number of security measures in
place to protect the servers. The main firewall is a check point firewall system. If the main firewall goes
down traffic is redirected to the secondary. Figure 4 shows the checkpoint firewall system. There are
multiple internal firewalls within the network. After the firewall there are multiple monitoring devices
connected to various points in the network. The device monitor the traffic for any unauthorized access
to restricted systems. Figure 5 shows the monitoring devices in the network.

Section 2: Network Traffic


This section outline the possible traffic flow that could be seen in the network. This is only an estimation
of the traffic and not an exact expectation.

1-A: Possible Traffic


The traffic flow from the vlans well vary. Vlans 1 and 3 well most likely have a low amount of traffic flow
related to the genome database. There should be a medium level of traffic flow from Vlans 2 and 4. Vlan
5 should have the highest level of traffic. Most traffic well be bidirectional traffic flow. The researchers
working remotely could have a high level of traffic depending on the research they are doing.

Section 3: Additional Comment


This section covers additional questions that would be asked before designing the network.

1-A: Genome4U Founder Questions


It is important to know where this network is going to be installed. It would also be helpful to know if
this is going to be added to an existing network or not.

1-B: Other Questions


It would also be helpful to get baseline information for the network if it is already in place.
