The development of cloud computing has advanced rapidly over the past few years. Benefitting from the dynamic characteristics of cloud computing, enterprises can purchase cloud services based on different aspects in order to save operating expenses. Many companies have seen the opportunities and changes in either cloud computing service providers or cloud computing service consumers. For the latter, with so many cloud providers to choose from, there is a need for an evaluation of standards to help find the most suitable service provider. In this paper, the essential factors of enterprise clouds are discussed. An evaluation model is defined and a web based enterprise cloud selection application is implemented.
