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

Steps in the Accounting Process - The Accounting Process is a sequence of organization activities that is used for gaining quantitative information about the finances. This complex process consists of a set of sequential steps.
9 steps in the accounting process: Analysis of Business Transactions, Make Journal Entries, Post to Ledger Accounts, Prepare Trial Balance, Make Adjusting Entries, Adjusted Trial Balance, Prepare Financial Statements, Close Accounts, Post-Closing Trial Balance.

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.

These donut chart templates was designed using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Pie Charts solution from Graphs and Charts area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
All these donut chart templates are included in the Pie Charts solution.
You can quickly rework these examples into your own charts by simply changing displayed data, title and legend texts.

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.

In software engineering, it is important to understand how the system would cooperate with external sources, like data sources. To give this information a visual representation, data flow diagrams (DFD) were used for years. The entire system is usually divided into smaller ones, and all of them process data flows in appropriate ways.
The visualizing business processes which engages the data transfer, is commonly preformed using DFDs (data flow diagrams). DFD is used to show the data flow processing and transformation. This DFD represents the electronic system of a customer purchase. It was created using Gane/Sarson notation. Data flow diagrams helps you to sort through and clarify transferring process making it available for analysis, and representation. ConceptDraw DFD solution introduces the vector library, containing the full set of icons from DFD notations.
