Introduction to Cloud Computing Architecture
Source: Sun Microsystems
Cloud computing promises to increase the velocity with which applications are deployed, increase innovation, and lower costs, all while increasing business agility. Sun takes an inclusive view of cloud computing that allows it to support every facet, including the server, storage, network, and virtualization technology that drives cloud computing environments to the software that runs in virtual appliances that can be used to assemble applications in minimal time. This white paper discusses how cloud computing transforms the way one designs, builds, and delivers applications, and the architectural considerations that enterprises must make when adopting and using cloud computing technology.
