Abstract: In the recent time cloud computing has come forwarded as one of the most admired computing model in knowledge domain that concerns about the distributed information systems to support the whole world as a cloud community. Distributed, virtualization and service-oriented nature have given ascendancy to cloud computing to distinguish from its core descendants like grid computing, geographical information systems, and distributed system. Although cloud computing dominants the e-society, but it is still in under research, progress. The architecture of cloud’s taxonomy and its services are very significant issues for cloudifications because every day some new advancements and developments are adjoined under its umbrella. In this paper we proposed an extended and granular classification of taxonomy for cloud computing and specified services that is a detailed ontology of cloud, which will be helpful for researchers and stakeholders in better understanding, developing, and implementing cloud technology and services to their lives.

Keywords: Cloud computing, Distributed system, Granular classification, Taxonomy.
