Excellent cloud design is all about following the basic principles and strengths that are at the heart of cloud computing. Cost-efficient. Reliable. Highly-available.
What is cloud computing? Put simply, cloud computing is the ability to use IT resources over the internet. If you've ever had e-mail with an online provider like Gmail, AOL or Hotmail, you've used cloud computing. You don't own the e-mail server, but you use the service itself and you may or may not pay for that service.
Cloud computing, in finer detail, is the ability to use IT services on-demand in a pay-as-you-go model over the internet using one of three different models. These models are Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
Consider the following image when thinking about SaaS, PaaS and IaaS using housing as an example. Everything in gray is what you own and are responsible for and everything blue is provided for you by someone else.
The first column is full home-ownership, like a traditional on-premises datacenter. You are responsible from end to end for everything.
The second column is renting an apartment and represents IaaS. You're paying someone else to take care of managing the infrastructure and you're responsible for what's going on within that infrastructure like operating systems, data and applications.
The third column is staying a hotel and represents PaaS. In this model, you don't even have to worry about operating systems. You just bring your data and applications.
Finally, the fourth column is staying at an all-inclusive resort and everything is taken care of for you. This column represents SaaS. The data and applications are managed by someone else and all you do with the service is use it.
Apply these concepts to the image below...
...and you have an understanding of how IaaS, PaaS and SaaS function in the IT realm.
