Cloud computing is receiving a great deal of attention, both in publications and among users, from individuals at home to the government. The cloud makes it possible for the user to access their information from anywhere at any time. While a traditional computer setup requires them to be in the same location as their data storage device, the cloud takes away that step. The cloud removes the need for the user to be in the same physical location as the hardware that stores their data. A major feature of the cloud services is that user's data are usually processed remotely in unknown machines that users do not own or operate.
