Abstract

Since cloud computing is an essential component of any modern company (usually accounting for a considerable share of information technology (IT) infrastructure investment), consumers rely on cloud services. Data privacy and security are worries when data remains in third-party storage. Existing document version control systems are centralized and at risk from data loss, as seen by higher time utilization and incorrect document update procedures that allow modifications to a document without the awareness of other network operators. Underutilized peer resources might be leveraged to construct storage. According to this argument, an elevated level of data security may be obtained by encrypting the data and dispersing it among numerous nodes. In this study, we attempted to review the security of cloud systems when using the blockchain Ethereum, and cloud computing was briefly discussed with its advantages and disadvantages. The idea of a decentralized cloud was briefly demonstrated with blockchain technology. Furthermore, previous papers were reviewed and presented in tabular form. This dictated that there are still research gaps in the field of blockchain-based cloud computing systems. This study proposed a model for secured data storage over a decentralized cloud by blockchain Ethereum.
