AbstractDuring the past few years, cloud computing has become a key IT buzzword. Although the definition of cloud computing is still “cloudy”, the trade press and bloggers label many vendors as cloud computing vendors, and report on their services and issues. Cloud computing is in its infancy in terms of market adoption. However, it is a key IT megatrend that will take root. Though the cloud computing has great features such as on demand self service, resource pooling and rapid elasticity there is a shortage in cloud computing because it hasn't provided a unique semantic ground as that of Semantic Web . So, in order to provide an environment for automatic searching of services, resources ontology is used. These are some of the areas where Ontology is used in Cloud Computing. Ontology based registries are used for dynamic discovery of cloud computing resource across various cloud computing platforms, It can be used to provide intelligent customization framework for Saas and easing the design of security system by proving role based access control using ontology.
