Cloud computing has garnered popular support in a relatively short span of time. It is a new method of delivering the distributed resources over internet. It reduces capital expenditure as well as operational expenditure. The number of Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) who provide computing as a utility has increased exponentially in the past few years, providing more options for the customers to choose from. In this paper a model for Trust Management based on Fuzzy Logic has been developed, which can help consumers make an informed choice towards selecting the appropriate CSP as per their requirement.
