Cloud computing integrates vast computing and/or storage resources together, which provides services on demand via network. The cloud computing data center is usually composed of thousand of commercial computers, and these computers are connected by network. A cloud computing programming model is urgent to design to help user to use cloud resources without concerning the details of implementation. Now-a-days, some cloud computing programming models have been proposed. This paper first analyzes the problems which cloud computing programming model need to solve, and then analyzes the characteristics of the cloud computing programming model.
