Security Issues and Challenges - Cloud Computing

Daniyal M. Alghazzawi and Syed Hamid Hasan

Cloud computing is in its preliminary stages when we respect to its implementation usage. The reason for this is that the technology is heavily dependent on the high-tech resources that the academicians and researchers find it practically impossible to analyze test the technology. The basis of the cloud computing process is a desire to have another layer added while information is processed. Cloud computing is generally understood as computing in grids and as a utility where the software is provided as a service and the storage is provided through the cloud via virtualization, which means that the client remotely uses a service provided by a provider commonly termed to be “in the cloud”. It is being debated if the aforementioned components can be separated and can be individually dealt with, however there is a general agreement that they all come under the cloud computing collectively. There have been many discussions related to the Cloud computing from the actual providers of the Cloud computing, as there has been a lack of published work from the academicians. However, the researchers are also making their presence felt by addressing many of the issues related to cloud computing.
