We examine some technological aspects of cloud computing, focusing on virtualization applied to various data types including multimedia and identify the benefits & security concerns for a modern IT infrastructure. An experiment to migrate a live company server consisting of Microsoft Exchange e-mail and file server to a cloud infrastructure is conducted. The initial findings are that each process step needed to overcome security issues of server migration. The writers will propose improved approaches for modelling cloud-hosted multimedia applications, semantics and abstract data models.
