The authors decided to focus on the categorization of cloud architectures by looking at the deployment and service models used to describe cloud computing. Researching which architectures are available is hard to do because cloud computing offerings are emerging at a rapid pace. It is not only hard to keep track of all the cloud computing offerings, the cloud computing paradigm itself is also rapidly evolving. Finding out which services are offered and deriving which architectures are used for each of these services, is an impossible goal to achieve in a market this big and developing this fast.
