Cloud computing architecture consists of many loosely coupled cloud components.

The architecture is mainly divides the cloud architecture into two parts:

1) Front End
2) Back End

Each end is connected to others through a network, generally to the Internet.

Front End
  • The front end is the side of computer user or client.
  • It involves the interfaces and the applications that are necessary to access the Cloud Computing system.
Back End
  • The back end is the cloud section of the system.
  • It involves all the resources which are necessary to give Cloud computing services.
  • It includes huge data storage, virtual machines, security mechanism, services, deployment models, servers etc.
  • To give built-in security mechanism, traffic control and protocols is the responsibility of the back end.
