Abstract

Cloud Computing (CC) has become one of the most transformative computing technologies and a key business avenue, following in the footsteps of main-frames, minicomputers, personal computers, the World Wide Web and smartphones. Its vital features have considerably reduced IT costs, contributing to it...
