I'd like to take a moment to explain my cloud interoperability ideas. After various conversations, our concept is starting to take shape and is based on what I'm called the "unified cloud interface" (aka cloud broker). The cloud broker will serve as a common interface for the interaction with remote platforms, systems, networks, data, identity, applications and services. A common set of cloud definitions will enable vendors to exchange management information between remote cloud providers.

The unified cloud model will address both Platform as a service offerings such as Google App Engine, Azure and Force.com as well as infrastructure cloud platforms such as Amazon EC2. Ultimately this model will enable a decentralized yet extensible hybrid cloud computing environment with a focus on secure global asynchronous communication.
