Cloud computing has become a global data center solution serving many users or costumers in a variety of business or personal purposes. During the past, most organizations have relied on traditional network methods to store processed data. This process requires higher costs and maintenances. Cloud computing provides access to data in web application fashion in order to remotely access the data services whenever is needed. Since this is a sharing process in computing and resources among organizations, there will be some major security impacts when it comes to data storage. Separating the data is an approach that will increase the security, consistency, privacy, and availability of the data.
