  1. The information technology industry has witnessed a dramatic transformation over the last 15 years. Currently, Cloud Computing remains possibly one of the most talked about technology trends and is expected to have a tremendous impact on IT delivery, hosting environments and fundamental computing resources. Further, cloud computing is a relatively eco-friendly technology as IT resources for multiple customers can be centrally managed, thereby reducing overall energy consumption levels.
    The objective of this white paper is to propose key building blocks and best practices intended for both consumers and providers of cloud computing services. In the paper, we also include a brief discussion of the definition, deployment and service models pertaining to cloud computing.
    The term “cloud”, as used in this white paper, appears to have its origins in network diagrams that represented the internet, or various parts of it, as schematic clouds. “Cloud computing” was coined for what happens when applications and services are moved into the internet “cloud.” Cloud computing is not something that suddenly appeared overnight; in some form it may trace back to a time when computer systems remotely time-shared computing resources and applications.
    More currently though, cloud computing refers to the many different types of services and applications being delivered in the internet cloud, and the fact that, in many cases, the devices used to access these services and applications do not require any special applications.
    Many companies are delivering services from the cloud. Some notable examples as of 2013 include the following:
    Google — a private cloud that it uses for delivering many different services to its users, including email access, document applications, text translations, maps, web analytics, and much more.
    Microsoft — Has Microsoft SharePoint online service that allows for content and business intelligence tools to be moved into the cloud, and Microsoft currently makes its office applications available in a cloud.
    But, what is cloud computing? The following sections note cloud and cloud computing characteristics, services models, deployment models, benefits, and challenges.
