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.

Electrical plan is a document that is developed during the first stage of the building design. This scheme is composed of conventional images or symbols of components that operate by means of electric energy. To simplify the creation of these schemes you can use house electrical plan software, which will not require a long additional training to understand how to use it. You only need to install the necessary software ant it’s libraries and you’ll have one less problem during the building projection.
Any building contains a number of electrical systems, including switches, fixtures, outlets and other lightening equipment. All these should be depicted in a building electrical plans and included to general building documentation. This home electrical plan displays electrical and telecommunication devices placed to a home floor plan. On the plan, each electrical device is referenced with the proper symbol. Electrical symbols are used for universal recognition of the building plan by different persons who will be working on the construction. Not all possible electric symbols used on a certain plan, so the symbols used in the current home plan are included to a legend. The electrical home plan may be added as a separate document to a complete set of building plans.

It can be tough to get straight into business papers and processes.Otherwise, you can learn how to create flowcharts for an accounting information system and visualize these documents. Accounting diagrams are clear and easy to understand for all the participants of the process.
There are symbols used for creating accounting flowcharts using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and its Accounting Flowcharts solution. Accounting flow charts are a special kind of flow charts. Actually a variety of flowcharts are often used to facilitate many aspects of a workflow of accounting department. Accounting flowcharts are utilized to support creating accounting documentation, to depict positions responsible for fulfillment of each phase of accounting workflow.

For documenting the Cloud Computing Architecture with a goal to facilitate the communication between stakeholders are successfully used the Cloud Computing Architecture diagrams. 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.

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.

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.

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 a detailed network plan can cause a lot of headache to an unexperienced user. And it is worth mentioning that ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a decent tool for creating a network diagram, a tool that is easy-to-use. To get an accurate diagram use the vector shapes from the special libraries that represent workstations, network appliances, wiring systems and connect them with smart-connectors, just as simple as that.
This communication network diagram displays the way different components of a computer network communicate with each other. When representing network information, such as depicting all the equipment in a large network, it is helpful to make visual representation. Network diagram provides an easy way to show the way the connections between an equipment in a large network. This diagram of a communication network depicts a network composed of three sub-networks. It uses a network equipment symbols to represent the different devices that make up a network communication including routers, Ethernet devices and end-point equipment.
