Abstract -
Technology and its advancement lead us to research for the next level of the advancement. In the context of the Cloud computing which we can tell as the technological advancement plays the vital role in the industry of Information Technology. In this paper, we have given emphasis on the Privacy and security involved in the multicloud architecture. The big threat to cloud is the security which has not yet robust and need much more advancement to give the client that is the best solution especially in the industry domain if banking and financial services. Apart from the above mentioned domain other domains are fair and fine enough to us the technology. In this one we use the data partitioning and the security of the node and agent based cryptography, which will provide the tiered or layered security.
