In this paper, we propose a hybrid computational paradigm associated with cloud computing and wireless sensor network. Attempts have been made to devise a protocol that establishes communication between sensors and cloud resources. The objective is to increase the availability of real-time sensor information across the users. Further, it will be possible to share the information of various application-specific sensor network deployed at various locations. We suggest a virtualization for sensor versus cloud and cloud versus users. This will facilitate the user to visualize sensor network and cloud.
