Cloud computing is a term used to describe a network with huge number of devices connected via the internet and can share a variety of data and information remotely. However, cloud computing has very limited facilities that may or can provide beneficial advantages for information retrieval; cloud should be independent and reasonable. Hence, in order to achieve an efficient cloud computing system that can highly help in information retrieving, web services are needed. For web services to be useful, more than one web service must be combined together. In this paper, we introduce a summary of the development of web services for information retrieval in cloud computing using agents, and also we compare between six developed systems based information retrieval using cloud computing.
