Ontology of Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing is one contemporary technology in which the research community has recently embarked. Manifesting itself as the descendant of several other computing research areas such as Service-Oriented Architecture, distributed and grid computing, and virtualization, cloud computing inherits their advancements and limitations. Towards the end-goal of a thorough comprehension of the field of cloud computing, and a more rapid adoption from the scientific community, the authors propose in this paper ontology of this area which demonstrates a dissection of the cloud into five main layers, and illustrates their interrelations as well as their inter-dependency on preceding technologies.
