AbstractWith the growth in the number of Cloud Service Providers, many en-terprises and organizations are now able to use multiple Cloud platforms in or-der to achieve improved overall Quality of Service (QoS), reliability and cost efficiency. However, due to the diversity in architecture and functionalities among different Cloud platforms, it is difficult to build a system that simultane-ously manages multiple Clouds, i.e., a Cloud of Clouds. In this paper, we pre-sent a model-defined approach to the development of a Cloud of Clouds, and a real case study to demonstrate its feasibility.
