Published by Ahmad on

Curious about the inner workings of cloud computing?

Let’s break it down:

Client Infrastructure:

– Provides a user-friendly GUI for interacting with the cloud.


– Any software or platform a client wishes to access.


– Manages the type of service accessed based on client needs.

  Software as a Service (SaaS):

    – Runs directly through web browsers, no need for downloads.

    – Examples: Google Apps, Salesforce, Dropbox.

  Platform as a Service (PaaS):

    – Provides a platform for software creation.

    – Examples: Windows Azure, Force.com, Magento Commerce Cloud.

  Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS):

    – Manages applications, data, middleware, and runtime environments.

    – Examples: Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2, Google Compute Engine (GCE).

Runtime Cloud:

– Provides execution and runtime environment to virtual machines.


– Offers vast storage capacity to manage and store data.


– Includes hardware and software components to support cloud services.


– Coordinates and manages application, service, runtime cloud, storage, infrastructure, and security.


– Implements security mechanisms to protect data and resources.


– Facilitates communication between front end and back end components.

Understanding these components is key to unlocking the full potential of cloud computing!
