Cloud Service Provider more popular topic that has drastically changed the way of working with the complex, time consuming, and costly solution. CSP provides computer infrastructure to enterprises with some SLA. SLA consists of some promises like providing simplicity, utilities with virtualization. After utilizing some of the resources provided by the CSP, most of the organizations are looking for the fastest way of accessing available resources anywhere any time with less cost.[16] Three important services delivered for cloud computing are Software as a Service, Platform as a Service, and Infrastructure as a Service. Users have accessibility to these services using Internet. Users can pay to the cloud service provider as per their use of resources for specific time, eg. Web hosting. Cloud service providers generally price according to Quality of Service requirements. Private, Public, and Hybrid clouds are types of cloud deployment models. [2][19]
