Cloud computing enable users to manage their data and applications online by providing them with resources on-demand along with features like scalability, security, elasticity, and redundancy. In the cloud computing environment, the Small and Medium Enterprises(SME's) need not have the in-house infrastructure. However, they could waiveoff any initial expenditure for setting up hardware. Instead, they can utilize the resources available on the cloud and pay as per their requirements and usage. Over a couple of decades, Information technology (IT) has created a significant impact in improving the lives of people and also on the global economy due totremendous digital transformation. Small and medium corporations are the foundation of any flourishing economy for a growing nation which seeks new and innovative methods to reduce the way they manage their resources. Small and medium enterprises (SME’s) are usually identified as the dominant force for the growth of any country's economy. This paper presents the results of a comprehensive interpretation of some of the most commonly used IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) implementations in the domain of Cloud Computing. Firstly this study aims to identify the weaknesses of the traditional computing approach for SME’s and secondly to identify the aspects of those weaknesses that can be overcome by implementing cloud computing for SME’s using IaaS.In the present study we have adopted IaaS approach and analyzed how SME’s can leverage on this for their business operations.
