Cloud computing is basically an Internet-based network made up of large numbers of servers - mostly based on open standards, modular and inexpensive. Clouds contain vast amounts of information and provide a variety of services to large numbers of people. The benefits of cloud computing are reduced data leakage, decrease evidence acquisition time, they eliminate or reduce service downtime, they forensic readiness, they decrease evidence transfer time. The main factor to be discussed is security of cloud computing, which is a risk factor involved in major computing fields.
