The term of “moving to cloud” refers to an organization moving away from traditional operational models to updated and new models and organizations have turned to cloud environments, which nowadays this has been happening for many organizations. 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 organizations. On the other hand, using of IT Frameworks can be the best way for organized business processes and other different objectives processes. The purpose of this paper is to provide a novel architecture for cloud environment, based on recent best practices and frameworks such as ITIL, eTOM 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 little other architecture in a form of statistical graphs to show the benefits exist therein.
