Cloud computing is a technology which will facilitate companies or organization to host their services without worrying about IT infrastructure and other supporting services. Usually cloud computing services are delivered by a third party - Cloud Service Provider (CSP) provider who owns the infrastructure. Cloud computing offers an innovative business model for organizations to adopt IT services without upfront investment. Despite the potential gains achieved from the cloud computing, the organizations are slow in accepting it due to security issues and challenges associated with it.
