What is Cloud Architecture?
A cloud architecture is how individual technologies are integrated to create cloud computing environments. Consider it how all the components that make up clouds—hardware, virtual resources, networks, operating systems, middleware, automation, management, containers, and more—are connected.
Clouds are considered Platforms-as-a-Service (PaaS). Architecting a cloud platform requires more than just abstracting a computer’s capabilities from its hardware components. It also requires additional levels of development to incorporate containerization, orchestration, application programming interfaces (APIs), routing, security, management, and automation software. User experience design (UX) is also important in order to create a navigable online experience.
While there are variations of cloud architecture based on what you’re trying to do, most clouds require hardware, middleware, management, and automation software. Most clouds also use virtualization to abstract the hardware resources into centrally managed data lakes.
Public cloud architecture: A cloud environment created from resources not owned by the end user that can be redistributed to other tenants.
Hybrid cloud architecture: Multiple cloud environments with some degree of workload portability, orchestration, and management among them.
Multicloud architecture: An IT system that includes more than 1 cloud—public or private—that may or may not be networked together.
