Organizations and businesses are constantly in search of ways to improve competitive advantage, reduce the cost of operation to increase profit margins and in all cases improve operations efficiency and effectiveness. Computer automation and Information Technology (IT) have proven to enhance business operations by expedient delivery of service and enhancing the ability to communicate over large geographical areas in real time. As the cost of obtaining up to date efficient IT systems continue to rise, Cloud Computing has been taunted as a means of reducing these costs and providing an equally or in some cases a better computerized platform for business functionality. This paper looks at the issues associated with cloud service failures, the consequences of such failures and provides a forum for discussing, sharing, reviewing and collaboration among peers, business owners and service providers. Despite the hype of a more efficient and effective system (Paas, Iaas, SaaS), cloud computing isnít without failures and the consequences of those failures to subscribers. A line of thought and implementation of such a scheme for organizations needs to be fully understood and established.
