Increasing the security and privacy related issues in cloud storages indicate a demand for an action to improve the security of data storage and increase privacy awareness. In this thesis, a novel trust level based solution for cloud data storage is introduced. This solution emphasizes in utilizing hybrid cloud technologies. This solution provides a simple user interface based on colors and it gives the possibility of selecting the storing places very easily and efficiently. Furthermore, to have a detail requirements of our solution a survey study based on questionnaire is administered and a proof of concept prototype is developed.
