—Service oriented architecture is a collection of services that communicate with each other to provide flexibility in system development and deployment. Cloud computing emphasizes on various service oriented architectures with the help of tools, which reduces the infrastructure cost of users. There are varying range of cloud tools and technology such as Eucalyptus, OpenNebula, Nimbus and OpenStack etc. The comparative study of different cloud tools and technology in this paper is performed on the basis of certain cloud parameters for the deployment of clouds. The concepts, architecture and implementation of cloud tools are also discussed here. The comparative study will be helpful to select an appropriate deployment strategy for users.
