With advances in Information Technology and
Communications infrastructure, different forms and modern
programming models in use have called for innovative forms of
Internet and Cloud Computing has come a long way since it
was first tagged as a future perspective by some researchers.
Cloud Computing, where computing resources and services are
offered and consumed over Internet without the users having
knowledge of the infrastructure.
This idea assumes creating an Internet in which programs and
data are stored at all times and is available for people who wish
to access to them. The truth is that it is not a completely
unknown structure for those who often use services on the Net.
Cloud Computing is convenient for users and is profitable for
suppliers because, despite having some risks, working with this
new type of technology, allows a saving on both licenses and
administration of services and equipment needed. Therefore,
they may represent an importance for businesses, particularly
in Mexico. However, suppliers trying to counter the insecurity
that currently is presented by the Cloud, have to abide by rules
if they want to offer their services.
