Cloud computing is a new innovative model for enterprise in which information is permanently stored on the servers and also manage how and when different resources are allocate to the requested users. It provides distributed approach through which resources are allocated dynamically to the users without investing in the infrastructure or licensing the software's on the client side. Cloud computing depends on the internet as a medium for users to access the required services at any time on pay-per-use pattern. However this technology is still in its initial stages of development, as it suffers from threats and vulnerabilities that prevent the users from trusting it. Various malicious activities from illegal users have threatened this technology such as data misuse, inflexible access control and limited monitoring. The occurrence of these threats may result into damaging or illegal access of critical and confidential data of users. This research paper describes the characteristics (threats, vulnerabilities) associated with a stormy cloud.
