Scientific problems are often large and distributed by nature as they combine processing of data produced at various sources. In the context of cloud computing this leads to a question of what problems would arise if we were to use resources obtain from not just one IaaS cloud, but a federation of multiple geographically distributed infrastructure clouds. Such multi-cloud federations have been called “sky computing” (see ) and involve challenges of standardization, security, configuration, and networking.
