Federation of cloud providers has been a research topic with a high impact for a long time. Despite the advances in the federation of identity and authorisation management, the synchronization of catalogues and the resource workload among clouds, there are still many interesting topics yet to be appropriately covered, such as federated networking, resource migration, scheduling policies and privacy restrictions. Moreover, the increased popularity of containers for application delivery and execution isolation opens up new scenarios.
