Cloud computing refers to providing computation services over the Internet. These Web-Based services
are available to the public over network connections and managed by a third party which guaranties the
availability of these services at an appropriate price. In this paper we will discuss the various sources of
uncertainty that result from placing data and applications on the cloud. Furthermore, we will discuss
counter measures to reduce or eliminate these uncertainties by instituting policies and procedures to
decide what application and data to place on the cloud. In addition, we will provide a model for assessing
uncertainty on the cloud.
