Abstract: Cloud computing is provided computing resources as a services and allow users to access them via. the internet (the cloud) without the need to acquire knowledge or experience or even control the infrastructure that supports these services. When there is a group of people who work through time and space and organizational boundaries with links supported by cloud computing this is called the Virtual Team (VT). In this study, we examined the virtual teams supported by cloud computing. Specifically, we evaluated the cloud computing role on the relationship between conflict management and behavior of members and virtual team performance. An experiment was conducted with 200 respondents were chosen from 11 countries. More than 3 quarters of the survey participants (77%) are from the research sector in different areas, followed by participants of the educational sector (63%). In addition, there are participants from finance, industry and security sectors. The results shows that the most important need for VT is leadership (37%), to avoid teams conflicts and most of the participants mention that good planning is the best way.
