Abstract: Nowadays, companies are becoming global organizations. Such organizations do not limit themselves in conducting business in one country. They need dynamic, elastic, scalable cloud computing platform that operates around-the-clock. Full functionality, adaptability, non-stop availability and reduced cost are the major requirements that are expected from cloud computing services. Planned or unplanned system outages are the enemies of the successful business in cloud computing environment. Hence it requires highly available, elastic scalable systems. In this paper, we analyze the benefits of cloud computing and evaluates the database architectures namely shared-disk database architecture and shared-nothing database architecture for high availability, Dynamic and Elastic Scalability.
