Cloud computing is here for offering more data safety to users and helping them streamline their business processes. When we speak of cloud service architecture or a cloud computing architecture we refer to all the subcomponents and components that are needed for mobilizing a cloud computing service.
Typically, cloud service architecture includes a front end and a back end platform, a delivery system based on the cloud and of course a network. A front end platform could mean a fat client, a mobile device or a thin client. Back end platforms mean storage devices and servers. Network means either intranet, inter cloud or the internet. When all these components are combined together they form the cloud computing architecture.
To explain more clearly, the cloud computing architecture of a specific cloud hosting India is the structure of a complete system which comprises cloud resources on premise, middleware, services, geo-location, software components and the external properties of these along with the relationship they share between them. Documentation facilitates communication between documents and stakeholders, decisions concerning high levels of design and also allows re-usage of components used for design.
Before engaging a cloud computing model, a basic understanding of the architecture and its technicalities is important.
