1. Introduction
Cloud computing is a concept of delivering a type of software, platform, and computing
infrastructure in a network. In this, the actual business centric hardware is placed in a
centralized location, or distributed servers are used to house applications. Businesses and
customers can access the needed resources via connecting the servers from remote
locations. Cloud computing encompasses various computing concepts like hosted
applications and accessing software through web browser, which provide scalable business
applications delivered through internet.


Cloud Computing services have three service models and four deployment models. They
are:
Service models:
    Software as a service (SaaS) – The service provides capability for running
      applications in a cloud infrastructure. These applications can be accessed by
      customer through client interfaces (web browser). However, the customer does not
      have a control on cloud infrastructure.
    Platform as a service (PaaS) – In this service model, a software platform is
      provided to the customers so that they can develop applications based upon their
      business needs. Applications can be deployed by the customers over cloud
      infrastructure without having control on the cloud infrastructure.
    Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) – In this service model, customers are
      provided with provision processing, storage, networks, and other fundamental
      computing resources. The storage space provided tp user here can be used by user
      to deploy software. The customers have control over deployed applications and
      storage, but limited control in selecting networking components.


Deployment Models:
    Private cloud – In this, the exclusive cloud infrastructure is used by an organization
      that can be either on premise or off premise. The private cloud can be provided by a
      third party or can be owned by the organization.
    Community cloud - The cloud infrastructure is shared and limited to some
      organizations. It can be provided by a third party, which can be either on premise or
      off premise.
    Public cloud - This cloud infrastructure is made available to the public and is owned
      by organizations providing cloud services.
    Hybrid cloud – This is a combination of two or more clouds. The different clouds
      forming hybrid clouds create unique entities. The connection between various clouds
      is ensured by proprietary technology that enables data and application portability.
