“Cloud Computing” which is a buzzword nowadays is applied to many industries at present. For instance, there has been a new trend for e-commerce companies to adopt Cloud Computing. Most organizations are attracted by Cloud computing because Cloud can save time and money for them in investing in IT infrastructure. There is no doubt that this may be the biggest benefit brought by Cloud computing, but Cloud computing also brings a number of other benefits. For e-commerce companies, Cloud Computing provides some specific benefits. For example, it is quite important for e-commerce companies to keep their customers information secure. Cloud Computing helps to improve the security performance in e-commerce by providing a safer way to store the information. This paper will present other benefits that offered to e-commerce companies by Cloud Computing. Although Cloud Computing can bring lots of opportunities for e-commerce companies, there still have some issues that should be paid attention to before moving to it. For examples, there is no unified Cloud standards yet which may cause trouble to use Cloud Computing; the quality of Cloud service cannot be guaranteed; migration effort should be considered, etc. These issues will be discussed in this paper.
