Cloud computing is the concept that emerged recently. After its introduction, there is a massive change in industries. Specifically, industries holding IT resources welcome cloud computing services. Presently, the term ‘Public Cloud’ is also introduced in educational sector. Earlier research studies considered cloud computing as a beneficial factor. Cloud computing services are used globally and organizations have obtained more profit out of it. One such good example is Microsoft Azure. This paper briefly reviews those studies underlying the concept ‘cloud computing’. It enables the readers to understand the utility of cloud computing in enterprises.
