Cloud computing is an Internet based resource sharing which trigger broad network access. This cloud computing technology is a new technology which delivers a new model for information and services by means of an existing grid computing technology. Further, this new technology uses Internet infrastructure to communicate between the client and the server side service applications. Apart from this, cloud computing has cloud service provider they offers cloud platform for their customers to create and use web oriented services. The hardware and software resource sharing is possible in cloud with the help of internet and it can be managed and maintained by the third party cloud service provider. The cloud service provider facilitates cloud computing to increase the capacity or add capability, for example without investing in a new infrastructure, training new people or licensing new software. It is packed with a new infrastructure to improve the services like scalability, elasticity, business agility, faster start up time, reduced management cost and availability of resources. This special Internet based shared resource has its own conceptual, technical, economical and user experience characteristics. Nowadays, cloud computing has become one of the most important and popular research areas in the field of computer science. Many open research problems are available in cloud computing and good solutions also been proposed by the researchers by developing new techniques and efficient algorithms. In this paper, a detailed study about cloud computing, its basic concepts, history, virtualization technique, and cloud services are discussed. In addition to this, research issues in cloud computing also discussed.
