There is no conciseness in the industry for a generally accepted definition of cloud computing. “There is a clear consensus that there is no real consensus on what cloud computing is” (Irving Wladawsky Berger,IBM). “Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous , convenient , on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (eg, networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned release with minimal management effort or services provider interaction” [1] Characteristics of cloud computing According to NIST Cloud computing characteristics can be described in the following essential characteristics. 1. On Demand self service Some of on demand self-services are email, applications network or server services. These are categorized as self-service because these services can be provided without requiring to interact with service providers. These services are provided by amazon web services, Microsoft, IBM and Salesforce.com. Ability to use the cloud’s APIs to automate your deployment processes help reduce errors and facilitate an efficient and scalable update processes 2. Broad Network Accesses Broad network accesses to the cloud service or solutions are available over the internet and consumers of the services can accesses the networks using the various standard mechanisms. The mechanisms promote the usage of the services by heterogeneous client such as
