The maximum benefit out of the recent developments in sensor networking can be achieved via the integration of sensors with Internet. The real-time specific sensor data must be processed and the action must be taken instantaneously. This distributed architecture has numerous similarities with the wireless sensor networks (WSN) where lots of motes, which are responsible for sensing and preprocessing, are connected with wireless connection in the real-time. Since wireless sensor networks are limited in their processing power, battery life, communication speed and storage resources , cloud computing offers the opposite , which makes it fetching for endless observations, analysis and use in different sort of environment.

In this paper we proposed an architecture, which integrates the Cloud computing technology with the wireless sensor network. In this paper we also discussed some research challenges with respect to cloud computing and wireless sensor networks, and important key component of sensor cloud
