Cloud Computing as an Internet-based computing; where resources, software and information are provided to computers on-demand, like a public utility; is emerging as a platform for sharing resources like infrastructure, software and various applications. The majority of cloud computing infrastructure consists of reliable services delivered through data centers and built on servers. Clouds often appear as single points of access for all consumers' computing needs. Commercial offerings of the cloud are expected to meet quality of service guarantees for customer satisfaction and typically offer service level agreements. The deployment of cloud computing can be easily observed while working on Internet, be it Google Docs or Google Apps, YouTube Video sharing or Picassa Image sharing, Amazon's Shopping Cart or eBay's PayPal, the examples are numerous. This paper does a literature survey on some of the prominent applications of Cloud Com- putting, and how they meet the requirements of reliability, availability of data, scalability of software and hardware systems and overall customer satisfaction.
