© 2016 IEEE. Cloud computing and cloud services provide an alternative IT infrastructure and service models for users. The users use cloud to store their data, delegate the management of the data, and deploy their services cost-effectively. This usage model, however, raised a number of concerns relating to data control, data protection and data mobility: 1) users may lose control of their resource, 2) data protection schemes are not adequate when data is moved to a new cloud, 3) tracking and tracing changes of data location as well as accountability of data operations are not well supported. To address these issues, this paper proposes a novel cloud service for data mobility from two aspects: data mobility and data protection. A data mobility service is designed and implemented to manage data mobility and data traceability. A Location Register Database (LRD) is also developed to support the service. Furthermore, data is protected by a data security service CPRBAC (Cloud-based Privacy-Aware Role Based Access Control) and an Auditing service that are capable of verifying data operations and triggering alarms on data violations in the Cloud environment.
