Abstract

The greatest challenge beyond trust and security for the long-term adoption of cloud computing is the interoperability between clouds. In the context of world-wide tremendous activities against the vendor lock-in and lack of integration of cloud computing services, keeping track of the new concepts and approaches is also a challenge. We considered useful to provide in this paper a snapshot of these concepts and approaches followed by a proposal of their classification. A new approach in providing cloud portability is also revealed.
