The penetration of public cloud services can be considered still low among the SMEs despite their elastic functionalities and cost benefits offered by the various cloud providers. In order to narrow the gap between the two sides, a feasible way is to introduce widely adopted certification methodologies of cloud providers that could build the trust further. Such certification might be quite complex due to the nature of cloud providers; IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS providers target different client bases with numerous applied technologies. Moreover, we become the witnesses of the emergence of federated cloud providers. Testing, validation, and benchmarking of such complex systems and defining the metrics/methods for the certification are non-trivial problems particularly in a way that interpretable by the client, and acceptable by the providers at the same time. Another key issue is to achieve the critical mass of certified providers, and enough visibility/acceptance among the potential clients.
