With the advent of cloud computing, there is a potential need for the interconnection of clouds (i.e., Intercloud). Intercloud seeks to connect heterogeneous clouds together to form a network of clouds. As an extension to our previous work, this paper gives an overview of an Intercloud system with a focus on the Intercloud Gateways and Intercloud communications protocol. To analyze the performance of the Intercloud systems, we have conducted experiments under different settings and scenarios. Furthermore, we have evaluated the Intercloud system to support a mobile Intercloud application.
