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.

What is a computer network? This is a set of devices and systems that are connected to each other (logically or physically) and communicate with each other. This could include servers, computers, phones, routers, and so on. The size of this network can reach the size of the Internet, and can consist of only two devices connected by a cable.
This sample shows the connection scheme of the home WLAN equipment to the Internet.
