Ali, Omar and Soar, Jeffrey (2014) Challenges and issues within Cloud computing technology. In: 5th International Conference on Cloud Computing, GRIDs, and Virtualization (IARIA 2014) , 25-29 May 2014, Venice, Italy.


Cloud computing refers to an emerging computing model where machines in large data centres can be used to deliver services in a scalable manner. It has become popular for corporations in need of inexpensive, large scale computing. Organizations and government agencies increasingly utilise cloud computing architectures, platforms and applications to deliver services and meet the needs of their clients. There are many challenges and issues such as privacy, security and trust that can have major impacts on the information and services supported by this technology. This paper summarises the technology background and discusses challenges and issues that can arise by the use of cloud computing in organizations and government agencies.
