Script from the year 2011 in the subject Computer Science - Technical Computer Science, grade: 2.0, , language: English, abstract: This paper will demonstrate a pragmatic methodology, used in conjunction with UML (unified modeling language), BPMN (business process modeling notation) along with engineering principles for describing an actionable architecture for cloud computing in the real world. The fundamental paradigm of cloud computing, whether it is for private or public usage, revolves around the provisioning of services for everyone through rich resources that can be synergized through Internet-based protocols. The true definition of Cloud Computing is, according to the author, all about the practicalities of “outsourcing” all aspects of using computing resources to some form of external “agency”. This means that the assumption for any cloud computing usage is the fact that the “agency” has a powerful resource base (hardware, software, infrastructure, platforms, power supply, backups, failover mechanisms as well as management skills). Therefore, all users of the cloud computing services provided by the “agency” can work in a well-defined “demand-supply” mode, with an insurmountable base of possible fault-tolerant mechanisms to support best possible user experiences. The user will have the unique experience of not being worried about where his/her work is being done because cloud computing, as defined above, will enable him/her to work in a “virtualized” environment but with the feeling of being close to the resources. However, the apparent ease available through cloud computing will raise problems associated with diverse types of risks. Hence, it is imperative to define new architectural blueprints as well as the associated business processes around them so as to provide measurable metrics that will allay the fears of any user. The architectural blueprint is not just meant to be a lot of diagrams and documents but they are to be modeled as actionable artifacts. These actionable artifacts will allow for operational excellence that covers all types of functional as well as non-functional requirements that any user expects. The MDA (model driven architecture) approach, coupled with BPM (business process modeling) and engineering principles, as posited in this paper, will allow for management of distributed communication, scheduling, security enhancements and rights (as well as many other aspects) that will make the user experience enjoyable and successful.

Cloud Enterprise Architecture examines enterprise architecture (EA) in the context of the surging popularity of Cloud computing. It explains the different kinds of desired transformations the architectural blocks of EA undergo in light of this strategically significant convergence. Chapters cover each of the contributing architectures of EA—business, information, application, integration, security, and technology—illustrating the current and impending implications of the Cloud on each. Discussing the implications of the Cloud paradigm on EA, the book details the perceptible and positive changes that will affect EA design, governance, strategy, management, and sustenance. The author ties these topics together with chapters on Cloud integration and composition architecture. He also examines the Enterprise Cloud, Federated Clouds, and the vision to establish the InterCloud. Laying out a comprehensive strategy for planning and executing Cloud-inspired transformations, the book: Explains how the Cloud changes and affects enterprise architecture design, governance, strategy, management, and sustenance Presents helpful information on next-generation Cloud computing Describes additional architectural types such as enterprise-scale integration, security, management, and governance architectures This book is an ideal resource for enterprise architects, Cloud evangelists and enthusiasts, and Cloud application and service architects. Cloud center administrators, Cloud business executives, managers, and analysts will also find the book helpful and inspirational while formulating appropriate mechanisms and schemes for sound modernization and migration of traditional applications to Cloud infrastructures and platforms.

Clouds are distributed technology platforms that leverage sophisticated technology innovations to provide highly scalable and resilient environments that can be remotely utilized by organizations in a multitude of powerful ways. To successfully build upon, integrate with, or even create a cloud environment requires an understanding of its common inner mechanics, architectural layers, and models, as well as an understanding of the business and economic factors that result from the adoption and real-world use of cloud-based services. In Cloud Computing: Concepts, Technology & Architecture, Thomas Erl, one of the world’s top-selling IT authors, teams up with cloud computing experts and researchers to break down proven and mature cloud computing technologies and practices into a series of well-defined concepts, models, technology mechanisms, and technology architectures, all from an industry-centric and vendor-neutral point of view. In doing so, the book establishes concrete, academic coverage with a focus on structure, clarity, and well-defined building blocks for mainstream cloud computing platforms and solutions. Subsequent to technology-centric coverage, the book proceeds to establish business-centric models and metrics that allow for the financial assessment of cloud-based IT resources and their comparison to those hosted on traditional IT enterprise premises. Also provided are templates and formulas for calculating SLA-related quality-of-service values and numerous explorations of the SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS delivery models. With more than 260 figures, 29 architectural models, and 20 mechanisms, this indispensable guide provides a comprehensive education of cloud computing essentials that will never leave your side.

In today’s workplace, computer and cybersecurity professionals must understand both hardware and software to deploy effective security solutions. This book introduces readers to the fundamentals of computer architecture and organization for security, and provides them with both theoretical and practical solutions to design and implement secure computer systems. Offering an in-depth and innovative introduction to modern computer systems and patent-pending technologies in computer security, the text integrates design considerations with hands-on lessons learned to help practitioners design computer systems that are immune from attacks. Studying computer architecture and organization from a security perspective is a new area. There are many books on computer architectures and many others on computer security. However, books introducing computer architecture and organization with security as the main focus are still rare. This book addresses not only how to secure computer components (CPU, Memory, I/O, and network) but also how to secure data and the computer system as a whole. It also incorporates experiences from the author’s recent award-winning teaching and research. The book also introduces the latest technologies, such as trusted computing, RISC-V, QEMU, cache security, virtualization, cloud computing, IoT, and quantum computing, as well as other advanced computing topics into the classroom in order to close the gap in workforce development. The book is chiefly intended for undergraduate and graduate students in computer architecture and computer organization, as well as engineers, researchers, cybersecurity professionals, and middleware designers.
