end applications leading to development of cloud computing services. The cloud services helps enterprise
to improve IT capabilities without investing large amounts in new datacenters or in upgrading the existing
one.


Cloud computing technology uses the internet and remote server to maintain data and various
applications of the enterprises. By centralizing storage, memory, processing and bandwidth, this
technology proves as a convenient model for network access. The 'cloud' which is actually a virtualization
of networks, servers, applications, data storage and services provides an on-demand access for the end
user. The cloud computing services with an on-demand model of network access, significant reduction in
costs, and increase in storage availability and high automation levels provides flexibility and control of
