CXOs need to evaluate different deployment models, service models and key characteristics of the cloud to implement the precise spectrum of cloud systems depending on organization's requirements. The key characteristic of cloud computing is its ability to scale and provision computing power dynamically in a cost efficient manner. Defining principles and adhering to best practices are some of the key factors that would greatly contribute to an optimal realization of the cloud computing potential. Although this paper is not intended to offer a comprehensive list of principles and practices concerning cloud computing, it is an attempt to consolidate the key principles and best practices of the technology to help minimize issues and challenges in cloud deployment.
