The concept behind cloud computing is to facilitate a wider distribution of hardware and software based services in the form of a consolidated infrastructure of various computing enterprises. In practice, cloud computing could be seen as an environment that combines cluster and grid characteristics that have been integrated into a single setting. Currently, cloud computing resources are limited in interoperability, mainly because of the homogeneity and the coherency of their resources. However, the number of users demanding cloud services has increased dramatically, thus, the need for collaborative clouds has increased as well. Therefore, various cases arise from this concerning the scalability and customisability when managing multi-tenancy. Here, we present an algorithmic model for managing the interoperability of the cloud environment, namely inter-cloud. So, we integrate our theoretical approach from the scope of orchestrating job execution in a distributed setting.
