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.

When used in different areas, flowcharts use specific symbols to depict different elements. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM offers libraries of symbols for many areas. One of such libraries is flowchart symbols accounting, which provides symbols for accounting diagrams. Activity-based costing calculates the costs of all products and services based on activities in an organization. A type of accounting flowchart that shows how costs are assigned to products with resources and activities is called Activity-based costing (ABC) flowchart. It can be designed in a digital drawing software such as ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.
Here is an accounting flowchart template and symbols. These flowchart symbols are applied for making accounting flow charts in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM and with its Accounting Flowcharts solution. An accounting flowchart is a specific type of a flow diagram. Practically a number of flowchart-type diagrams commonly utilized to clarify many parts of an accounting department working process. Accounting flowchart assists a process of preparing accounting documentation. It shows who responsible for implementation of each step in the workflow of accounting department.

The ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a best flow chart tool for the job. The samples and templates included in the basic set allows users to draw any type of a flowchart. The vector stencils created by designers give ability to draw great-looking flowchart. Flowcharts give to users the ability to represent structural data visually.

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample shows the Hierarchical network topology.
A Hierarchical network topology interconnects multiple groups that are located on the separate layers to form a larger network. Each layer concentrates on the specified functions, this allows to choose the right equipment for the layer.

A Home Area Networks (HAN) is a type of local area network that is used in an individual home. The home computers can be connected together by twisted pair or by a wireless network. HAN facilitates the communication and interoperability among digital devices at the home, allows to easier access to the entertainments and increase the productivity, organize the home security.
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the home network diagram.

What is information architecture? Information architecture (IA) is a broad and abstract term. At the most general sense the information architecture describes the structure of a system, how the different pieces of information are related at the system and represents their relationships. The information architecture term was introduced by Richard Saul Wurman in 1975 and now is commonly used in the context of websites and intranets, information structures and computer systems.
