Cloud computing is quickly evolving and expanding, thus it’s hard to precisely define this technology (Pallis 2010). However, the main features of cloud computing can be identified according to national institute of standards and technology (NIST)’s definition:
Keywords: Cloud Service Delivery model, Cloud Security Issues, Propositions for Cloud Computing Security 1. Introduction: Cloud computing has been defined by NIST as a model for enabling 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 cloud provider interaction. Cloud computing can be considered a new computing paradigm insofar as it allows the utilization of a computing infrastructure at one or more levels of abstraction, as an on-demand service made available over the Internet or other computer network.
2. The use of cloud computing, in which information is being stored and shared across the world, is growing at a rapid pace. To further help conceptualize this process, the cloud has also been described as something similar to a shared, pay-as-you-use public utility supplying water to a community.
End users who enjoy these resources and services available in the internet without knowing the knowledge of where and how these resources are manage. It is always available and is highly mobile across the platforms;
INTRODUCTION Cloud computing is an internet based computing that depends on sharing computing with other resources rather than local servers or personal devices to handle applications. Cloud computing has fundamentally changed the way people view computing resources; rather than being an important capital consideration (Navavati, M., Colp, P., Aiello, B., & Warefield, A. (2014)). Cloud computing offers many potential benefits to organizations by making information technology (IT) services available as a commodity. IT services are services provided by IT service provider. Such services includes storing, retrieving, transmitting, and manipulating data for businesses or organizations.
STUDENT NUMBER: 066275 CLOUD COMPUTING SECURITY TERM PAPER TWO Living with Increasing Attacks on Cloud Computing Platforms Cloud Computing is an on demand, flexible and cost friendly delivery platform that has provided IT consumers and organizations services such as networks, storage, servers and applications over the Internet. Its importance is increasing as a large number of industrial and technological communities are rapidly adopting it.
Introduction Cloud computing is a one of the most talked of topics in the field of Information Technology in recent times (Keyun, Joe, Taha, & Ibrahim, 2013). This subject area of cloud computing basically is a term used to describe computer resources available as a service accessible over a network (Darren & Kim-Kwang, 2013). The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) define cloud computing as a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access on 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 (Peter & Timothy, 2011). Due to the attractive nature of the model there has been rise in the use of cloud computing. Gartner, an IT research and consulting firm, says that cloud computing is growing will become the bulk of IT spend by 2016 (Gartner, 2013).
Cloud Computing, also known as ‘on-demand-computing’. It is a computing that based on internet to share resources, information, and data with other devices on-demand. It is a model that enabled everywhere, computing resources such as servers, networks, applications and storages that are configurable can be shared once demand with access and provision rapidly and released with minimum effort of management, and different services are handed through Internet to the computer of organization. Cloud Computing depend on sharing computing resources instead of using personal devices or local servers to handle applications.
“Cloud computing is a term used to describe a set of IT services provided to a customer over a network on a leased basis and with the ability to scale up or down their service requirements. Usually cloud computing services are delivered by a third party provider who owns the infrastructure” . Cloud computing has enabled its users to make computing resources a utility. In the near future, people will be able to get all the resources they need by connecting to the cloud via an Internet connection. In addition, storage, process power and memory capacity will be scaled on demand. The merits of cloud computing are plenty and so are its drawbacks. Of the most important concerns linked to cloud computing are these around its security risks.
Cloud computing refers to the technology in which the entire range of the services such as application, infrastructure and the platform are accessed with the help of the internet. The access to these services are provided by the major contributors such as Google, Apple , Salesforce.com, Amazon and Microsoft and the access to these services were entirely out of reach if these major providers would not have contributed in it to a large extent. The entire range of the services provided by the cloud computing includes the activities for the business operations. Collaboration; communication project management, data analysis; data scheduling; storage and the sharing are supported by the cloud services. The access to these cloud computing
The ubiquitous cloud is changing our lifestyles, workplaces and business practices in ways that lead organizations to a new level of convergence and connectivity. Today, many organizations perceive cloud computing as a powerful driver of business transformation and revenue growth. In fact, while cost reduction is a great incentive, several
Cloud computing enables the sharing of resources such as storage, network, applications and software through internet. Cloud users can lease multiple resources according to their requirements, and pay only for the services they use. However, despite all cloud benefits there
Introduction: Cloud computing is an emerging technology. With its huge demand, it is rapidly growing. Cloud computing is defined as "a type of Internet-based computing", where different services such as servers, storage and applications are delivered to an organization’s technological infrastructure through the Internet.
Introduction: Mainly Cloud computing word is related to the concepts of the storage and the accessing of the data that was over the internet. With the usage of this cloud computing the growth in the business has been increased over the decade very high. On the client side there is no need to maintain the infrastructure and also there are many advantages of this cloud computing technology. By the usage of this model the cost will be saved and also the time will be. Service providers of the cloud computing will provide the different types of the delivery models and the deployment models and each model has its own services and features. Out of all the deployment models infrastructure as a service model is the best as it was offering its services based up on the pay per usage by the user and out of all the delivery models hybrid model is the best as it was having all the benefits of both the public and the private.

With the fast computers and signal processors available in the 2000s, cloud computing become the most common form of data storage and generally, is used because it is not only the most versatile method, but also the cheapest.
