Integration of Cloud Computing (CC) and Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is increasing interest in both academic and industry for quite some time. The usage of WSN have several benefits such as tiny size, low power, low cost and easy communication over small range. With these benefits it has certain drawbacks like low processing power, scarcity of storage and limited battery life. The WSN-CC integration helps us to overcome limitation the WSN as cloud computing is a distributed paradigm which provides access of resources on demand such as network server, application and storage. So, if we could integrate Cloud and WSN the limitations of WSN can be overcome. This paper does the comparative study of integration of WSN and Cloud computing in detail and tries to come up with issues challenges and objective of the integrations described by various authors. It also focuses the existing application used by sensor cloud. Further the paper also presented the gaps and probable future work related to the integration of WSN-CC.
