Cloud computing is a new technology and a new trend. In recent years most of
organisations start to choose their cloud models. The educational institutions, especially
universities, cannot ignore the huge amount of benefits that cloud computing may bring them. In
this paper, we are explaining in details the concept of cloud computing, its models and usage areas,
its working principle, its advantages and disadvantages. We specifically focus on its importance for
universities by giving examples for its implementation in e-Learning.
