The Sitefinity Cloud architecture consists of two layers. On one hand, Sitefinity Cloud leverages Cloudflare and Microsoft Azure infrastructure services, to provide the environments the Sitefinity Web Application is running in. This layer is referred to as Infrastructure Services, as it takes care of infrastructure components - SQL Server, hosting configuration, CDN, WAF, and so on. On the other hand, an Azure DevOps-based Management Portal enables functionality such as managing the solution code, deployments, users, and so on.
The following diagram demonstrates the different components from the Sitefinity Cloud solution architecture and their interrelations:
