Cloud computing is a novel internet based network architecture that focuses on sharing of computing and resources. It is defines as enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. In a cloud system, for data owners, computing and data are not in the places they used to be in.
