In recent years, technologies have been introduced offering a large amount of computing and networking resources. Cloud computing is an emerging technology that access remote servers through Internet to maintain data and applications. It incorporates the advantages of grid and utility computing. Cloud computing is a new infrastructure deployment environment that delivers on the promise of supporting on-demand services like computation, software and data access, storage etc. Clouds provide inexpensive access to remote resources. Academia has not remained unaware of this trend, and several educational solutions (LMS) based on cloud technologies are already in place, especially for Software as a Service (SAAS) cloud.
