Cloud Computing is internet based computing where virtual shared servers provide software, infrastructure, platform devices and other resources and hosting to customers on a pay-as-you-use basis.

Users can access these services available on the “Internet Cloud” without having any previous know- how on managing the resources involved. Publication is essential to productivity in research, the work will be recognized only when it takes a conservative, physical form which can be received , accessed and recongised by professionals.

In this study the data has been collected for a period of 18 years from 2002 to 2019, a total of 252 records were retrieved and analysed using histcite software application and the results are tabulated based on the objectives.
