Data Location Verification in Cloud Computing
Cloud computing has pioneered the area of on-demand services. The customer can choose the resources according to the current needs with the facility of incrementing and decrementing the resources in the future. It generally follows a pay-as-you-use model which has proven beneficial for enterprises and individual users alike. Since the services are hosted over the Internet, one of the recent concerns that are rising among the users is about the location of their data. Sometimes it is necessary for the data to stay in a particular jurisdiction. Therefore, it may be required for the organization to verify the location of their data from time to time.
