From both commercial and technological standpoints, cloud-based computing services (commonly referred to as cloud services) are often seen to be comprised of public cloud and private cloud services. Public cloud services can be further divided into three categories: Software-as-a-Service (SaaS); Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). As cloud service businesses continue to rapidly develop, related service providers are also growing. This article provides a brief analysis of compliance issues affecting cloud service providers.
