Abstract: Cloud computing is a recent technology paradigm that enables organizations or individuals to share various services in a seamless and cost-effective manner. Cloud computing makes it easy to have high performance computing. Cloud computing is a service which is easily available on market when you want it you can start the service and when you don’t want you stop the service and you pay it for what you use, you need a computer or a laptop to access the Cloud Services. Cloud services are becoming popular in terms of distributed technology because they Allow cloud users to rent well-specified resources of computing, network, and storage infrastructure. Cloud computing is the development of parallel computing, distributed computing, grid computing and virtualization technologies which define the shape of a new era. However, most existing Cloud Computing platforms have not formally adopted the service-oriented architecture (SOA) that would make them more flexible, extensible, and reusable. By spanning the power of SOA and virtualization in the context of Cloud Computing ecosystem, this paper presents seven architectural principles.
Keywords: Cloud computing, virtualization, Cloud Architecture.
