Cloud Computing Architecture Diagrams

Cloud Computing


According to the definition of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST): "the Cloud Computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction."

The Cloud computing lets users to have access to the resources, software, and information using any device with access to Internet, at this users pay only for the consumed resources. A cloud model provides three types of services:

  • Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) that provides processing storage, networks, and other computing resources where the consumer can deploy and run different software;
  • Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that offers platform layer resources to build, deploy and deliver applications into the cloud;
  • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) that provides end-user applications that are running on a cloud infrastructure.

A Cloud can have one of four types of access:

  • Public Cloud - allows systems and services to be easily accessible to the general public;
  • Private Cloud - allows systems and services to be accessible within an organization;
  • Community Cloud - allows systems and services to be accessible by group of organizations;
  • Hybrid Cloud - is combination of public, private and community cloud.

Cloud Computing Architecture


The Cloud Computing Architecture is the configuration of the system that involves local and cloud resources, services, middleware and software, cloud clients and cloud storages, networks, geo-location. Note that the Cloud Computing Architecture is based on the needs of the end-user - the cloud consumer and describes how all these components are arranged and related.

Cloud Computing Architecture Diagram


For documenting the Cloud Computing Architecture with a goal to facilitate the communication between stakeholders are successfully used the Cloud Computing Architecture diagrams. Each Cloud Computing Architecture diagram visually depict the cloud components and relationships between them.

It is convenient and easy to draw various Cloud Computing Architecture diagrams in ConceptDraw PRO software with help of tools of the Cloud Computing Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Cloud Computing

The Cloud Computing is the use of the software and hardware that includes the great number of computers connected over the communication network such as the Internet. The Cloud name comes from the usage the cloud symbol on the system diagrams as the abstraction for the complex network infrastructure. This term is used as a marketing metaphor for the Internet. This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Cloud Computing.Cloud computing

Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data. This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.Flowchart Symbols and Meaning, workflow diagram symbols, process flow diagram symbols

Types of Flowcharts

A flowchart is a simple but very functional tool when it comes to understanding a workflow or to removing unnecessary stages from a process. When drawing flowcharts, keep in mind that there are four common types of flowcharts, like document flowcharts and data flowcharts that show control over a data or document flow over a system. To show controls on a physical level, use system flowcharts. In addition, to show controls in a program, you can draw a program flowchart. This flowchart diagram represents the piece of an article editing process, that involves the author and editor. It was created using the Basic Flowchart notation that consists from the basic flowchart symbols. The start and the end of the process are indicated with "Terminator" symbols. The "Process" symbols show the action steps consisting from making edits and searching for a compromise, when the author does not agree with the suggestions of the editor . The "Process" symbol is the general symbol in process flowcharts. The "Decision" symbol indicates a branching in the process flow. There are two branches indicated by a Decision shape in the current flowchart (Yes/No, Disagree/Agree). This basic flowchart can be used as a repeating unit in the workflow diagram describing the working process of some editorial office.Types of Flowcharts

Network diagrams with ConceptDraw PRO

Of course it is possible to keep network records in text documents, but it is very difficult to use them later. A more sound way to keep such documentation is to create a network diagram that might represent either logical network structure or physical. These diagrams are easy to understand and you will thank yourself later. There is a physical network diagram. It is a tool to represent, maintain and analysis of network equipment and interconnections. Network diagram depicts the actual network information in the attractive clear graphic form. One can learn here the LAN cable length, telecommunication type and carrying capacity. The diagram depicts servers, IP address and domain name as well. Also it shows location of hubs, switches, modems, routers, and other network equipment. The sets of special symbols and images delivered with ConceptDraw Network Diagrams solution are used to show network components. Symbols have a standard view. Therefore, various specialists can read the network diagram without any discrepancies.Network diagram
