Abstract -
With the emerging and enormous development of I.T. sector in different walks of business and human life since many years, there is a greater need for computing the operations virtually. Out of the many networks available on the computer, cloud computing takes lead and occupies top place in the present computing scenario. Cloud becomes more widely and intensely accepted by many users and migrating to the cloud by the users remains an attracting opportunity from a financial perspective to many both individuals and organisations.It needs to connote clarity in documenting cloud structure, types of clouds, security and governance. This helps better to articulate properly the cloudrelated aspects to both technical and managerial counterparts. In this paper,we propagate some major challenges andsome problem areas in cloud computing. Suitable and relevant potential research topics in the area of cloud computing are also projected.
