Cloud computing services have not been yet deployed widely by the SMEs in Japan. Due to its many advantages, special skills and support techniques for the SMEs need to be developed in order to implement cloud computing services. A research of the relevant literature reveals that virtually no published academic research has focused on the rational relationship between cloud computing services and the SME’s information infrastructure. Accordingly, to bridge this gape in our understanding of cloud computing, this paper proposes and designs a special system framework of cloud computing for the SMEs. Moreover, we devise a prototype model and identify the possibility of the system implementation. Services that deliver functionality equivalent to Amazon EC2 which is representative cloud service but delivered through other technologies are called EC2 clones. OpenStack is not an EC2 clone, and is a typical open source project for providing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) type cloud services. OpenStack is used in this research to implement a basic cloud service model.
