Cloud Computing is gaining the attention of today's users and businesses. Network-based Cloud Computing is rapidly expanding as an alternative to conventional office-based computing. Cloud Computing provides suitable on-demand network access to a shared pool of computing resources. Several trends are opening up the era of Cloud Computing, which is the use of computer technology, used to make storage of huge amounts of data and information easier for organizations. Maintaining own servers to store all the information is quite expensive for individual and organizations. Cloud Computing allows to store and maintain data on remote servers that are managed by Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like Yahoo and Google. This data can then be accessed throughout the globe.
