Cloud Computing has become most demanding utility or service for the current era, because of its high computing power, performance, cheapness, accessibility, scalability, and availability. But still it is in infancy stage, and has some pitfalls which are due to non-existence of standards. Interoperability and portability are the two among the major issues in Cloud Computing. Authors have pointed out these issues and how actually interoperability and portability issues would be encountered? Authors propose architecture to address these two issues with the collaboration of next emerging technology i.e., agents and XMPP protocol. As there is an architecture proposed before using agents but in this paper first time both features of an agent i.e. intelligence and mobility are used in some particular way.
