Cloud computing delivers the computing services by sharing information, resources, and important software over a network (Internet). Cloud computing is the fastest growing technology that is impacting every sector and hospitality industry is no exception (Alshamaila, et.al, 2013). In fact, one can observe that travel industry is the ideal business to implement the cloud solution. Travelshoot is planning to improvise the travel experience of the clients. Therefore, it is developing linkage with the regional photographers in order to provide customers with high-quality pictures of their whole trip. This may require a large data storage device as the files are heavy and transferring them to the clients can be very time-consuming and troublesome. The company aims at delivering the pictures to the customers within a week. This is quite difficult for the company and may consume a large number of resources of the organisation. Apart from this, the company focuses on tourists of various age groups with different demands. Therefore, satisfying their needs may be very challenging for the company. Furthermore, the company often faces system failure issues, especially in peak demand seasons. This is due to storing a large amount of data on the primary server of the company. To all the aforementioned issues of Travelshoot, there is only one solution which is called "Cloud Computing" solutions. This can provide an online extra storage that is accessible from everywhere. Thus, making it simple for the clients, customers, and organisation to access or store information on to it (Alshamaila, et.al, 2013).
