This chapter provides a comprehensive exploration of the essential components and concepts related to compute and storage in cloud computing. The chapter delves into the various compute options available in cloud computing. It covers the concept of virtual machines (VMs), which allow users to create and run multiple instances of operating systems on a single physical server. The advantages of VMs, such as resource isolation and scalability, are discussed in detail. Additionally, the chapter explores the concept of serverless computing, where users can run their applications without the requirement to manage the underlying infrastructure. This serverless model offers benefits such as automatic scaling, cost efficiency, and reduced operational overhead. The chapter then delves into the concept of virtual networks and their role in facilitating communication between different components of the cloud infrastructure. It also explores storage technologies such as block, file, and...
