Since the birth of internet technology, the technology industry has been steadily moving away from local storage to remote, server-based storage and processing, in what has become known as the cloud. Cloud computing is aimed at providing IT as a service to the cloud users on-demand basis with greater flexibility, availability, reliability and scalability with utility computing model. Following the automation of administrative tasks, teaching and learning, research and collaboration activities at Koforidua Technical University (KTU) campus, there has been a need for a computing paradigm that would facilitate management’s vision of putting KTU on the digital landscape. This paper presents the model and design of a cloud system for use by members of the KTU community. Mcloud is designed on Owncloud 8.1 with Php and sits on CentOS 6.6, which are all open- source technologies. The underlying algorithms are so robust so that user applications are accessible from various client devices. Mcloud allows application interoperability, making the system compare favorably with existing and more established cloud systems like Google Drive, DropBox, Microsoft OneDrive, Apple iCloud Drive and other cloud venders.
