Abstract: The advent and wide adoption of cloud computing has brought a new revolution in the field of IT. As consumers using cloud for data storage either in the SaaS, PaaS or IaaS deployment model are increasing-they realize the necessity of file compression. It becomes imperative to understand the scenarios where transition to the Cloud is beneficial. In our research, we have demonstrated that for small businesses – making a move to the cloud is not a good approach as less demanding applications can run well even on stand-alone machines, however as the data size grows – making a move towards cloud can yield higher availability. In this paper we evaluate and compare the performances of virtual machines running in cloud with stand-alone (unvirtualized) machine.
