What is Cloud Computing

What is Cloud Computing? The Cloud computing is a widely used and highly demanded utility in the modern world thanks to its high computing power, performance, scalability and accessibility, and at the same time low cost of services. The ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software provides an easy and effective Cloud Computing Diagrams solution from the Computers and Network area of ConceptDraw Solution Park for making professional looking Cloud Computing and Cloud Computing Architecture Diagrams.

Cloud Computing

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.

Cloud Computing Architecture

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.

Cloud Computing Architecture Diagrams

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.

Use it to design your cloud computing infographics and diagrams with ConceptDraw PRO software.
"Cloud computing, also known as 'on-demand computing', is a kind of Internet-based computing, where shared resources, data and information are provided to computers and other devices on-demand. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources. Cloud computing and storage solutions provide users and enterprises with various capabilities to store and process their data in third-party data centers. It relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale..." [Cloud computing. Wikipedia]

This Azure cloud architecture pattern diagram template was created on the base of figure in the article "External Configuration Store Pattern" from the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) website.
"External Configuration Store Pattern.
Move configuration information out of the application deployment package to a centralized location. This pattern can provide opportunities for easier management and control of configuration data, and for sharing configuration data across applications and application instances. ...
The majority of application runtime environments include configuration information that is held in files deployed with the application, located within the application folders. In some cases it is possible to edit these files to change the behavior of the application after it has been deployed. However, in many cases, changes to the configuration require the application to be redeployed, resulting in unacceptable downtime and additional administrative overhead. ...
Store the configuration information in external storage, and provide an interface that can be used to quickly and efficiently read and update configuration settings. The type of external store depends on the hosting and runtime environment of the application. In a cloud-hosted scenario it is typically a cloud-based storage service, but could be a hosted database or other system.
The backing store chosen for configuration information should be fronted by a suitable interface that provides consistent and easy to use access in a controlled way that enables reuse. Ideally, it should expose the information in a correctly typed and structured format. The implementation may also need to authorize users’ access in order to protect configuration data, and be flexible enough to allow multiple versions of the configuration (such as development, staging, or production, and multiple release versions of each one) to be stored."

Diagramming tool - Amazon Web Services and Cloud Computing Diagrams

The AWS Architecture Diagrams solution includes icons, sample and templates for several Amazon Web Services products and resources, to be used when creating architecture diagrams. The icons are designed to be simple so that you can easily incorporate them in your diagrams and put them in your whitepapers, presentations, datasheets, posters or any technical material you like.
"In computer networking, cloud computing is computing that involves a large number of computers connected through a communication network such as the Internet, similar to utility computing. ...
Network-based services, which appear to be provided by real server hardware, and are in fact served up by virtual hardware, simulated by software running on one or more real machines are often called cloud computing. Such virtual servers do not physically exist and can therefore be moved around and scaled up or down on the fly without affecting the end user, somewhat like a cloud becoming larger or smaller without being a physical object. ...
Typically, the seller has actual energy-consuming servers which host products and services from a remote location, so end-users don't have to; they can simply log on to the network without installing anything. The major models of cloud computing service are known as software as a service, platform as a service, and infrastructure as a service. These cloud services may be offered in a public, private or hybrid network. Google, Amazon,, Oracle Cloud, Salesforce, Zoho, Access2MyPC, and Microsoft Azure are some well-known cloud vendors."

How to Create an Azure Architecture Diagram

Microsoft Azure is an open cloud computing platform, designed by Microsoft. It provides the ability to develop and launch applications and to store data on servers in distributed data centers. Microsoft Azure cloud offers two models - platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). The efficiency of the Windows Azure platform is supported by a global network of Microsoft data centers. Developers use Azure Architecture diagrams to visualize and document the architecture of applications based on Microsoft Azure services. Using the ConceptDraw Azure Architecture solution makes much easier the work on documenting the Microsoft Azure architecture.
