What is Cloud Architecture?
Cloud architecture encompasses various components such as applications, software capabilities, and databases, among others. These components are engineered to harness the power of cloud resources to resolve complex business problems. Hence, cloud architecture assists in formulating a relationship between the various components. These include:
Software components and services
The purpose of cloud architecture is to allow users to have uninterrupted access to their data and applications, enabled with high bandwidth. Good cloud architecture should provide users access to an on-demand agile network and the flexibility to move seamlessly between clouds or servers, while at the same time providing enhanced network security.
There are multiple cloud-based services available today and all have their unique cloud architectures:
Software as a Service (SaaS)
Software as a Service (SaaS) is maintained on the internet and involves a software host. While employing SaaS, users can opt-out of installing software locally.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides hardware and infrastructure such as storage devices, networks, and servers, among others. These services are offered to users on a pay-per-use basis.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
Platform as a Service (PaaS) provides users with databases and application platforms, which are equivalent to services provided by middleware.
Desktop as a Service (DaaS)
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) provides a virtual desktop that is hosted in the cloud. Since it is held separately in a remote server, it is different from other physical accessories.
