The impact of cloud computing can be seen in several industries, including e-learning, healthcare and education. It offers customer service lives with high productivity and minimal cost, producing a high financial value. In contrast to developed countries, the use of cloud computing is still relatively new and is not widely accepted in developing countries like Saudi Arabia (SA). In essence, implementing a modern approach to the cloud is dependent on a number of factors that may affect the Saudi Arabian government's preference to do so. Therefore, it is critical to comprehend why some companies are better equipped than others to transition to cloud computing in order to support the application of cloud knowledge. Accordingly, this article aims to present a cloud computing model for E-commerce in SA that integrates the E-commerce as a service business and cloud computing. The proposed model also offers several internal services, including security services, Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Hardware as a Service (HaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Data as a Service (DaaS). Throughout this, it is anticipated that the suggested model will work with reliable management, server and business modules in addition to sources of hardware and software.
