Cloud Computing provides an abstraction layer between computing resource and its technical execution details, such as its servers, databases, and networks, in turn enabling resources to be used on demand while avoiding efforts in organization management. However, without Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), organizations will find it almost impossible to reach the cloud.SOA, an elastic, modular approach to distributing IT services, is an essential foundation for emerging technologies like cloud. SOA provides significant advantages over current IT architectures. While it depresses costs, its main benefit is the improvement in swiftness that it provides to organizations, enabling them to respond to the increasing rate of change occurring in nearly every business around the world. Gradually, Cloud Computing and SOA are assuming more noticeable roles in large organizations for the purpose of operational efficiency and cost reduction. These technologies already left behind the status of emergent technologies to consolidate as mature and upheld technologies. It is evident that a growing adoption of cloud platforms and service-oriented architectures is taking place in all market segments. Conversely, little is said, in fact, as SOA and cloud computing are related. Are SOA and Cloud computing approaches complementary to each other, or should they be used separately?
