Introduction to Cloud Computing Architecture
The Cloud Computing Architecture is a broad and comprehensive modern concept, which includes the possibility to use the cloud to store large amounts of various data and applications, and providing them on demand, it is also the use of storage internet applications, as for example e-mails, it is the seamless access to powerful hardware, servers, storage and software technologies offered by datacenters without embedding significant investment to own infrastructure, software and hardware.
The clouds are classified by location and by offered services. By location they can be:
- Private - cloud which is build and exclusively used by a single organization.
- Public - cloud hosted by cloud service providers.
- Hybrid - combines both public and private cloud models.
As for the offered services, the clouds can be:
- Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) - which offer the storage and database hosting;
- Platform as a service (PaaS) - which offer a development platform;
- Software as a service (SaaS) - which offer a complete ready-to-use application.
The best way to visualize the introduction to Cloud computing architecture is to create diagrams and schematics representing what is a cloud computing and how it works. For their design, we recommend to use a powerful ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software supplied with Cloud Computing Diagrams solution from the Computers and Network area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Example 1. Introduction to Cloud Computing Architecture - Cloud Computing Stack
Cloud Computing Diagrams Solution provides for your choice wide variety of useful drawing tools, 4 libraries with a number of various ready-to-use vector icons, objects and colorful clipart, and also collection of professionally designed samples and examples which can become a beautiful source of inspiration for you.
Example 2. Cloud Computing Types
All libraries objects are vector, so you can resize them without loss of quality, change their color to make your diagrams and charts more interesting, bright and attractive.
All samples are available at your disposal at ConceptDraw STORE, you can apply them as is, or open in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM to change some details and then successfully use them at your work and science activity.
Example 3. Cloud Computing Architecture
The diagrams you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software using the tools of Cloud Computing Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw Solution Park. They are the good introduction to Cloud computing architecture. An experienced user spent 5-10 minutes creating each of them.
Use the Cloud Computing Diagrams Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software to create your own professional looking Cloud Computing Architecture diagrams and schemes quick, easy and effective.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw STORE. The Cloud Computing Diagrams Solution is available for all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a network that allows the private networks at a remote location securely connect to the public Internet and provide access only to the intended recipients for transmitting data. VPN is built by creating the virtual point-to-point connection using the dedicated connections, traffic encryption or virtual tunneling protocols.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Virtual Private Network (VPN) diagram.

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.

You can use many tools to create a representation of a system behavior or a scheme of objects relationships. Some of them are quite abstract and useless, and some, like UML tools help clarifying both the structure and the behavior of a system. There are various types of uml diagrams and tons of examples explaining the difference between them.
UML 2.2 specification has many kinds of diagrams. They are divided into two groups( structure and behavior diagrams). This class diagram shows the hierarchical structure of UML 2.2 specification. Class diagram - the most suitable tool for this task because it is designed to describe basic structure of a system. This diagram can be use as a visual aid for learning UML.

A list of parameters on which networks differ is very long. A large network with a range up to 50 kilometers is called metropolitan area network (MAN), and this type of network can include several local area networks. Metropolitan networks in their turn connect into global area networks.
Here you will see a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). This is an extensive network which occupies a large territory including a few buildings or even the whole city. The space of the MAN is bigger than LAN, but lower than WAN. MAN comprise a lot of communication equipment and delivers the Internet connection to the LANs in the city area. Computer and Networks solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides a set of libraries with ready-to-use vector objects to design various kinds of computer networks.
