Cloud Computing and primitive Client-Server Architecture

Explain how the Cloud Computing is different from the primitive Client-Server Architecture?




Primitive Client-Server architecture refers to a one-to-one communication between only two physical machines namely Client machine and Server machine (data center). However, the cloud computing, infrastructure is identical at the client side, though varies at the server-side. The server-side consists of a main Cloud Controller which forwards the request to its worker machines termed as Nodes. These nodes are the grid computing machines which dedicate all its resources to the process application. These nodes are managed in the clusters. Thus, a infrastructure of the cloud computing is quite complicated on the server side which processes all the requests from the clients and send the result back.
