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 mediators for enabling connectivity and collaboration among disparate cloud providers. Point to Point protocols such as HTTP are not suitable

On top of that, for the federation of the resources themselves, we define a resources catalog approach, using the Semantic Web Resource Definition Framework (RDF) along with a common Ontology of Cloud Computing Resources to work across a variety of heterogeneous cloud providers.
