"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to write a detailed project plan, specifying the deliverables and the hardware that will be used, before asking for a time quote.  What you have listed above is what the business community calls "fuzzies" instead of goals.

For example, take 3 above, "3. Virtual Private Cloud."

A good start, but still nowhere near detailed enough, is:

Implement a virtual private cloud on a Brand X server model foo using Windows Y.  The software that will be used is Vendor A's VPS Master Revision X.Y.  Hardening against attack using Vendor B's EncryptoMax Version G.H to level K.  Compatibility required with Windows 7, 8, 10, RT and Green Hat Linux.  Implement no less than 200 TB of storage using Vendor T's NAS RAID product NASPick version U.V, with at least one level of redundancy.  The following documentation will also be required:  Hardware, software, troubleshooting guide, user guide.

Based on the specs, between 100 and 3000 man hours.
