Cloud Computing Architecture Diagrams
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.
Example 1. Cloud Computing
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 DIAGRAM software with help of tools of the Cloud Computing Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Exporting Cloud Computing Architecture Diagrams
The ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software provides powerful export capabilities - you can export your diagrams to a number of useful and popular file formats. Thus you can export the diagrams to Microsoft PowerPoint (PPT), Adobe Acrobat (PDF), Microsoft Visio (VDX, VSDX), and many other formats.
Example 4. Cloud Computing Architecture Diagram PPT
All exporting commands are available at ConceptDraw DIAGRAM from the File menu. You can immediately apply them when your diagram is ready.
Example 5. Cloud Computing Architecture PDF
The possibility of exporting diagrams to various formats gives to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users a flexibility when working with other people, because now it's not a problem to collaborate and exchange documents with those who don't have ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software.
Example 6. Cloud Computing Architecture Visio

TEN RELATED HOW TO's:
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 DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Cloud Computing.

The entity–relationship (ER) model is a data model that lets graphically represent the information system and depict the relationships between people, objects, concepts, places, and events within a given system. It is also convenient to use the ER Diagram for Cloud computing representation and description the Cloud computing architecture, design them with pleasure using the extensive tools of the Cloud Computing Diagrams solution from the Computers and Network area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

The Cloud Computing Architecture is the structure of the system, which is based on the needs of end-user and includes the set of components and subcomponents required for cloud computing, among them cloud resources, services, middleware, software components, front-end platforms (cloud clients), cloud-based back end platforms (servers, storage), and a network (Internet, Intranet, Intercloud). When designing the Cloud Computing Architecture diagrams, the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software advises to turn attention for the powerful Cloud Computing Diagrams solution from the extensive Computers and Network area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

If you need to describe some process, diagramming is a perfect tool for almost any imaginable purpose. The set of the most commonly used flow charts symbols is quite wide and includes symbols for operations, processes, data inputs and outputs. You can see the full list of all the symbols used for flowcharting in Flowcharts solution from Diagrams area in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
A flow chart is often used for visual representation of a sequential process flow. The flowchart approach to any process is to divide it into some sequential actions. What makes a flow chart so popular and clear to make out is the set of standard flowchart symbols that has the same reading independently from processes described with their applying. The current drawing represents the vector library containing the pack of standard flowchart symbols. This library is supplied with ConceptDraw Flowcharts solution.
