The Cloud is the leading technology that enables Digital Transformation and allows the creation of digital ecosystems where this transformation can take place.
Compared to on-premises environments, migrating to the cloud offers many advantages, such as increased scalability and cost efficiency. To take full advantage of the benefits of cloud technology, it is vital that specific workloads, users, and operating costs are taken into account when designing the Cloud architecture.
Cloud Engineering is the application of engineering disciplines to cloud computing and it concerns the designing of systems needed to exploit the potential of cloud resources to solve business problems. All technologies (hardware, software resources, and virtual resources) and components required for Cloud Computing are connected to each other thanks to the Cloud Architecture, which allows pooling, sharing, and scalability of resources on a network.
In cloud architecture, each component works in synergy to create a cloud computing platform that provides users with on-demand access to resources and services. The backend stores all cloud computing resources, services, data storage, and applications. A network is set up and used to connect the frontend and backend components of the cloud architecture, enabling data transmission from one component to another. When users interact with the front end, the network sends a query to the backend using middleware that enables the run of tasks or specific requests.
