Abstract: Cloud computing has emerged as a popular paradigm that offers computing resources (e.g. CPU, storage, bandwidth, software) as scalable and on-demand services over the Internet. As more players enter this emerging market, a heterogeneous cloud computing market is expected to evolve, where individual players will have different volumes of resources, and will provide specialized services, and with different levels of quality of services. It is expected that service providers will thus, besides competing, also collaborate to complement their resources in order to improve resource utilization and combine individual services to offer more complex value chains and end-to-end solutions required by the customers. In this paper we explore the viability of collaboration framework in cloud computing environments. This collaboration will be driven by the growing need to offer diverse services without having to spend heavily on infrastructure. Collaboration can be a boon to all cloud service providers in a way that the customers would have on offer a combined catalogue of all partnering CSPs.
