Cloud computing also promotes side by side the online availability. Moreover cloud computing saves initial cost as it is offered by third party and thus seeks no need to connect to the service or cloud provider. In cloud computing, internet plays an important role for converged hardware, software and IT applications. Cloud computing has healthy potentialities in iSchools as such academic units are offered academic programs on information and computing related domains. The paper presented the overview on cloud computing and its features with potentialities of the domain in iSchools and allied branches.

Keywords: cloud computing; green computing; virtualisation; academics; MSc; BSc; emerging degrees; iSchools; information sciences.
