Cloud computing allow users to store information in data centers, it also enables on-demand computation of resources. Remote servers can access the information inside the cloud. Cloud computing serves as an internet-accessible resource allocation business model and offers pay-per-use computing infrastructure. This paper primarily discusses about the main data storage security issues- in cloud computing and certain solutions which could be adopted as a remedy to such issues. It also includes an analysis review which helps in picking out the best fitting solution.
