Cloud computing is the latest effort in the field of computer technology in delivering computing resources as a service. It is a paradigm shift taken from computing as a product that is to be purchased to computing as a service that is delivered to consumers as 'Pay-per-use' over the internet on clouds. The biggest challenge that the present business world faces in cloud computing is the lack of a single and standard architectural method that can meet the requirements of an enterprise cloud approach. In order to address this challenge, the authors present an architectural framework with an algorithm which enhances scalability in a unified cloud environment.
