Cloud computing concept and technology and its abundant advancement in addition to its inherent advantages has created a new ecosystem in the world of computing and is driving IT industry one step forward. Nowadays, large organizations have transferred part of their data and processes into a cloud. Some well-known IT solution providers such as IBM have introduced a kind of specific architecture to be deployed for cloud environment, which the IBM architecture is now considered the focal reference for implementing cloud in a number of organizations. The purpose of this paper is to provide a novel architecture for cloud environment, based on recent best practices and frameworks and other reference model such as IBM, Oracle, etc. Meanwhile, a new service model has been introduced in this proposed architecture model and the concluded architecture is finally compared with few other architecture to show the benefits exist therein.
