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.

When describing any computer network, we imagine a set of devices and nodes, arranged in some way. Talking about network structures, we should distinguish physical and logical network topologies, as physical topology is about devices location and logical topology illustrates data flow. In the same time, they do not have to match, and some devices, such as repeaters, may have a physical star layout, but a bus logical topology.
There are two main types of computer network topologies: Physical topology that show the physical organization of a network - equipment and types of connections. Star network topology involves a set of devices that is connected to a single hub (router). Ring network topology means that, devices connected according this topology have two connections, connecting with nearby devices to make a loop. Bus network topology is the topology presented at the current diagram. It is similar to a ring topology. The difference is that data moves up and down a linear connection, copying itself where network equipment works as bus-stations along the way. This network topology can be used for small network, or when adding an extra device into a network.

Creating diagrams and schemes is a pleasure with proper software. You don’t need any additional skills to create organizational chart quick and effectively with our diagramming tool. Create your ConceptDraw account today and start your diagramming experience.
This is the most regular type of organizational chart - hierarchical. It is created using the ConceptDraw Organizational Charts solution. Its composition can be displayed as a pyramid, with an only person in authority at the top, with sub-levels of management below them. According to hierarchy, an employee communicates only to his immediate head or subordinates. A hierarchical organizational structure may be choice for a businesses that work on multiform markets or any other organization that has a workflow requiring a multilevel structure of middle management.

When talking about engineering, one should define all the terms used, so anybody could understand the topic. Typical network glossary contains definitions of numerous network appliances, types of networks and cable systems. The understanding of basic is crucial for server management, network administration and investigating problems.
The network glossary defines terms related to networking and communications. The most of glossary items has their visual representation in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM libraries of the Computer Network Diagrams solution. This illustration presents a local area network (LAN) diagram. It designed to show the way the interaction of network devices in a local network. The diagram uses a library containing symbols of network equipment, connections and the end-point devices such as network printer, hubs, server, modem and finally computers (PC, mac, laptop). This diagram depicts a physical LAN topology.

A workflow diagram is less general notation than a process flow diagram. Workflow as a term can apply to organizational process which involves people, resources, documents, sort of data, for instance; whereas a process is general collection of steps occuring in any sort of activity. That is why process flow diagram can be used as workflow diagram to describe business process, data flow or department interactions.
The fastest way to create a workflow diagram is using pre-designed workflow template. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with the Workflow Diagrams solution delivers rich set of workflow diagram templates you may start from.

If we divide computer networks by scale, we get several main categories. The smallest network is PAN, as it connects personal devices themselves, and as the number of users grows, a local area network can be recognized, and campus area networks (CAN) connects several local networks located within some area like a university or a corporation. Computers connected to CAN share public educational materials and list of CAN network examples includes such prestigious universities like Stanford and Carnegie Mellon.
This is an example of a computer network diagram created for a campus area network. It was created using using ConceptDraw solution for the Computer and Network diagramming. The specific of this sample campus network is its distribution. It is rather broad to embrace a big campus territory. This diagram can be applied as a template for designing custom area network topology diagram for a particular educational institution.

Any business process consists from a number of tasks carrying out the certain business goal. It is useful to diagram business processes to ensure that they are as foolproof, logical and sequential as possible. This business process diagram describes a typical booking process flow by the example of a cab booking process. It can be used as a roadmap for any booking system implementation. Diagramming a business process allows you to look at the entire project and take into account all types of possible scenarios. Business process diagram helps you investigate and clarify the process thoroughly so that you can find out how it can be improved. Business process diagram supports team communications by ensuring that each process element is clear and everyone in the team is on the same page.
Sometimes your company brings you less profit than you expect it to be, and it’s difficult to reveal the causes.

Local area network connects computers and other network appliances within an area, such as office building or a campus. It can be difficult to provide such network without a predesigned plan. For these purposes you can use network diagram software, which helps you to create LAN network diagrams and office network diagrams quickly and effortless. This will speed up your work and you can save the diagram for the future network improvements.
The following diagram illustrates a network topology of the small office. LAN configuration has a star topology. The local network joins 8 computers among which are several desktop PCs, laptop, two iMacs and iBook. The end-point devices are divided into three groups. Each group is connected to its hub. There is a network printer and a modem, which are interconnected with other devices through a network server. Each computer on the LAN can access the server through a corresponding hub.
