Amazon Cloud Computing Architecture

The term “Amazon Web Services” describes both a company (“Amazon”) and the technology this company provides. The “Amazon” company has its site, which is www.amazon.com, providing the computer platforms to its users, as well as the government representatives and different companies, offering the “free-tier” option, which expires in 1 year after registration. The “Amazon” technology allows its subscribers to have full-fledged virtual computers. These computers are available any time to any of the “Amazon” users, who need them, while they use the internet. The virtual computers, which are provided, have the real computer attributes, such as a choice of operating systems, networking and pre-loaded application software (for example, web servers, databases, etc.).

Each of the Amazon Web Services systems virtualizes its console, including the display, mouse and keyboard. This console allows its subscribers to connect to their Amazon Web Services system using their browser. This browser acts as a window into their “virtual computer”. The users of AWS can log-in any time they need their virtual computers and they can use any of them as if they used the real physical computers. The users can also choose to deploy their AWS systems in order to provide all of the needed internet-based services for their own as well as their customers' benefit.

This AWS technology bases on a single virtual AWS computer, a physical computer or even a few different physical computers. Amazon keeps its right to upgrade, provide and manage the industry-standard security to each of its subscribers’ system. The AWS services can be found in many global geographical regions and they include one of the services named “Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud”.

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud is one of the main services, provided by the Amazon.com’s cloud-computing platform – AWS. It allows Amazon’s users to rent the virtual computers, which they can use to run their own computer applications on. “Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud” is also known as “EC2”. It encourages the scalable deployment of applications by providing a web service, with the help of which any Amazon user can boot a so-called “Amazon Machine Image” or “AMI”. He can do that in order to configure his virtual machine, known in Amazon as "instance". This "instance" contains any needed software, so any user can launch, terminate and create the server-instances any time he needs. EC2 is useful for providing its users the control over their geographical locations of the instances, allowing the so-called “latency optimization” as well as the high levels of redundancy.

AWS comprised over 70 services, including computing, database, analytics, management, application, services, networking, deployment, storage, mobile and other different developer tools. The tools also include so-called “Internet of Things”. “Amazon Simple Storage Service” is also a quite popular service, most of which are not exposed directly to the end users, but they offer their functionality through APIs. Having these services working this way is very useful for the developers in order for them to have it in their applications. The Amazon developers offer their users a large scale of computing capacity for cheaper and still quick use, instead of building their own physical server farm. All of the services provided by Amazon are billed and they are based on the usage.

There are still very many other services provided by “Amazon Web Services” we have not mentioned yet, such as “Amazon CloudSearch”, “Amazon DevPay”, “Amazon Elastic Transcoder”, “Amazon Simple Email Service”, “Amazon Simple Queue Service”, “Amazon Simple Notification Service”, “Amazon Simple Workflow”, “Amazon Cognito”, “Amazon AppStream 2.0”, “Amazon Athena”, “Amazon Elastic MapReduce”, “Amazon Machine Learning”, “Amazon Kinesis”, “Amazon EC2 Container Service”, “Amazon Elasticsearch Service”, “Amazon QuickSight”, “Amazon Marketplace Web Service”, “AWS Direct Connect”, “Amazon Fulfillment Web Service”, “Amazon Historical Pricing”, “Amazon Product Advertising API”, “Amazon Gift Code On Demand” or “AGCOD”, “AWS Partner Network” or “APN”, “Amazon Lumberyard”, “Amazon Chime”, “Amazon DynamoDB”, “Amazon ElastiCache”, “Amazon Relational Database Service”, “Amazon Redshift”, “Amazon SimpleDB”, “AWS Data Pipeline”, “Amazon API Gateway”, “Amazon Aurora”, “AWS CloudFormation”, “AWS Elastic Beanstalk”, “AWS OpsWorks”, “AWS CodeDeploy”, “Amazon Identity and Access Management”, “AWS Directory Service”, “Amazon CloudWatch”, “AWS Management Console” or “AWS Console”, “Amazon CloudHSM”, “AWS Key Management Service”, “Amazon Elastic Load Balancing”, “AWS Elastic Network Adapter”, “Amazon CloudFront”, “Amazon Simple Storage Service”, “Amazon Glacier”, “AWS Storage Gateway”, “Amazon Elastic Block Store”, “AWS Import/Export”, “Amazon Elastic File System” and other.

Now, knowing the description of what “Amazon Web Services” is, you can always make your own “Amazon Web Services diagrams”. Using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software as a powerful diagramming and vector drawing tool, you can always make any needed diagram within only a couple of hours or even a couple of minutes, having the right solution downloaded from ConceptDraw STORE. In case you have ConceptDraw DIAGRAM as well as ConceptDraw STORE downloaded on your computer, then you will find the process of achieving the needed result much simpler in order for you to make any drawing needed getting a great looking result.

Hotel Network Topology Diagram →

A network diagram represents the set of computers and network devices and the connections among them. This scheme can be developed for any institution or establishment. To illustrate this concept let’s take for example, a hotel network topology diagram or a school network diagram. These diagrams depict access points, servers, workstations, firewalls and another equipment needed to provide a network. On this masterpiece drawing one will see a simple scheme a of connecting computers together. Such form of connecting can be applied for a hotel, guest house, bungalow, hut or something else. This diagram shows the images of the real LAN components. So, it represents a physical category of a network construction. It looks similar to a star - so this network configuration is named a star topology. The typical feature of this construction is a center point - usually it is hub, or router. The rays of this star means network connections. Computers, peripherals and other network details are placed on the ends of the star rays.Hotel Network Topology Diagram *

UML Diagram →

While developing software, it is very important to have a visual model, because it helps to represent the logic and the architecture of an application. Experienced engineers use UML diagrams to denote relationships between classes and their instances. UML is a general language for a set of diagrams like deployment diagrams, object diagrams or use case diagrams. This diagram represents UML class diagram used for a software system development using an object-oriented method. Class diagrams are categorized as static structure diagrams that depict the physical structure of a system. Class diagram divides a software system's structure into "classes". Classes are defined by the methods and variables of objects. UML Class diagram is used to depict relationships and source code dependencies between objects.UML Diagram *

Star Network Topology →

Nodes of any computer network are somehow organized in a hierarchy or a layout. Some of the common layouts like star network topology are more reliable and some like ring topology withstand high loads better. It is also important to distinguish logical topologies from physical. This diagram represents a typical view of the star network topology. The star network topology is one of the most frequently used network topologies in the majority of office and home networks. It is very popular because of its low cost and the easy maintenance. The plus of the star network topology is that if one computer on the local network is downed, this means that only the failed computer can not send or receive data. The other part of the network works normally. The minus of using star network topology is that all computers are connected to a single point-switch, or hub. Thus, if this equipment goes down, the whole local network comes down.Star Network Topology *
