Performance is an important factor while evaluating cloud services. The technology and architecture that deployment models and services in cloud environments offer are also important area of research and development of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), especially with costs and performance metrics. This paper deals with cloud computing technologies in now-a-days GIS and their role in the presentation and the availability of the spatial data via internet (spatial cloud computing). The first part is focused on the role of cloud storage services in architecture of GIS.
