Abstract

While adopting the Cloud, the small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) could increase their benefit by embracing some Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions, doubled by a Cloud Governance or Cloud brokerage approach.
However, in order to fully exploit the advantages brought by Cloud environments, and enter in real competition with "big players" from different markets, SMEs must group themselves under the umbrella of a common marketplace, via some Cloud Governance solutions, and expose together complex, tailored and integrated solutions.
The implementation of an effective Cloud Governance solution requires a strong support for storing and manipulating data which is relevant for various aspects of applications, both at business and technical level, support which is closely linked to cloud service lifecycle.
This paper focuses on analyzing the main requirements related to data storage in an effective Cloud Governance system, details the functionality of the most important datastores and presents various use cases involving the entire storage architecture.
