Why Federate When You Can Differentiate?

To clarify, this white paper is not a declaration that cloud federation is bad. It is instead a means for exploration of the alternate approaches to a Federated Model. In this whitepaper, we bring to light federation’s challenges and explain that for many there might be a more attractive alternative.

This white paper provides much needed clarity around the strengths, weaknesses and difficulties of implementing a successful cloud federation business model by presenting some of the business and operational challenges.
