Cloud Computing Diagrams

Over the latest years, the concept of the cloud computing and cloud services penetrated into a wide variety of life and business areas. Today, the cloud services are provided by the large number of companies around the world, among them there are Amazon, Google, Netflix, Microsoft, Apple, IBM, HP, Oracle, and many other companies well-known in a sphere of information technologies. Ones of the most famous and reliable cloud service platforms today are the Amazon Web Services from Amazon.com Inc. and SmartCloud from IBM Corp. Despite the fact that only now the cloud computing received the most popularity, its development history originates from the mid of the 20th century, and Salesforce was the first company that provided the enterprise applications over the Internet, in 1999.

The popular cloud computing information technology concept implies the convenient access to the shared network computing resources and data for computers and other devices on call. At this, all applications, software and data required for a work are provided to the users as an Internet service. Being physically located on a remote server at the Internet, the applications are running and displaying results of their work in a standard web-browser window on the local computer or other used device, while the technical details of this process are hidden from the user. Thus, the cloud computing allows users and organizations with different computing capabilities to store and to process the data in the clouds, on the remote servers located at the data processing centers, the precise location of which is often unknown, but they are typically equipped with the latest high-tech hardware that many companies and organizations cannot afford to possess at the place.

For the description and visual representation of the Cloud computing architecture, for displaying the essence of the cloud computing, the main characteristics and classification of the cloud services are designed the Cloud Computing Diagrams, which use the cloud symbol as the abstraction for the complex network infrastructure and other commonly accepted cloud computing symbols and pictograms.

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the libraries from the Cloud Computing Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This Cloud computing infographic sample illustrates three main types of the cloud computing: private /internal, public /external and hybrid. A private cloud is a cloud infrastructure intended for use and operated by solely one organization. A public cloud in its turn is intended for free use by the general public, its services are provided over a network opened for a public use. At this, the architecture of a public and private cloud may have a little difference or may not, as opposed to the security considerations that can differ significantly. As for a hybrid cloud, it is a combination of various cloud infrastructures, of at least one public cloud with at least one private cloud. A hybrid cloud combines the ability to access a huge range of public cloud applications and services, as well as the main advantages of the private clouds that guarantee high reliability, security of storage and processing the information.
