Cloud computing has made significant inroads in the IT industry for its innovative and efficient features. It is a shared pool of configurable devices, which is used to store as well as access data. Cloud service providers offer cost-efficient features that reduce or eliminate the need for enterprises to purchase extra equipment and build data centers. From an economic point of view, operating cloud is a major cause of concern for an organization as maintaining an IT team to manage the cloud operations can be a costly affair for businesses.
