Cloud computing is a new design pattern for large, distributed data centers. Service providers offering applications including search, email, and social networks have pioneered this specific to their application. Recently they have expanded offerings to include compute-related capabilities such as virtual machines, storage, and complete operating system(More)
Working groups have proposed building a layered set of protocols to solve the Cloud Computing interoperability challenge called " Intercloud Protocols ". Instead of each cloud provider establishing connectivity with another cloud provider in a Point-to-Point manner resulting in the n 2 complexity problem, Intercloud Directories and Exchanges will act as(More)

The concept of a cloud operated by one service provider or enterprise interoperating with a clouds operated by another is a powerful idea. So far that is limited to use cases where code running on one cloud explicitly references a service on another cloud. There is no implicit and transparent interoperability. This interoperability should be more than cloud(More)
The Cloud Computing paradigm has been adopted in countless areas of application and forms the basis of a growing number of business cases. Similar to the situation with service providers in the 1980th, it becomes apparent that different Cloud providers build walled gardens around their offerings. While multiple projects and organizations are working on(More)
Intercloud refers to a transparent and voluntary federation of Computing Clouds analogous to the way the Global Internet or Global PSTN/Mobile Telephony works. Individual Service Providers join into a predefined Common Channel Signaling network (Backbone IP Routing protocols in the case of the Internet, the SS7/IN network in the case of the PSTN/Mobile(More)
In the contemporary cloud computing environment, the various cloud providers adopt different architectures for their systems and usually these are not compatible. The scalable exchange of information about these heterogeneous resources is often not addressed; still this represents an interesting challenge, since different Cloud systems and vendors have(More)
