If you had to pick a single area of concern in cloud computing, that area would undoubtedly be privacy and security. When your data travels over and rests on systems that are no longer under your control, you have increased risk due to the interception and malfeasance of others. You can’t count on a cloud provider maintaining your privacy in the face of government actions. In the United States, an example is the National Security Agency’s program that ran millions of phone calls from AT&T and Verizon through a data analyzer to extract the phone calls that matched its security criteria.

Com Web site is an example of an SaaS service. A client using an SaaS service might—as is the case for Quickbooks online—log into the service from his browser, create an account, and enter data into the system. com has a service agreement that not only covers the performance of the hardware and software, but extends to protecting the data that they store for clients, and other fundamental characteristics. com l SQL Azure These service model classifications start to get confusing rather quickly when you have a cloud service provider that starts out offering services in one area and then develops services that are classified as another type.

The illusion of scalability is bounded by the limitations cloud providers place on their clients. Resource limits are exposed at peak conditions of the utility itself. As we all know, power utilities suffer brownouts and outages when the temperature soars, and cloud computing providers are no different. You see these outages on peak computing days such as Black Monday, which is the Monday after Thanksgiving in the United States when Internet Christmas sales traditionally start. The illusion of low barrier to entry may be pierced by an inconsistent pricing scheme that makes scaling more expensive than it should be.
