As the volume of data to be processed in a timely manner soars, the scale of computing and storage systems has much trouble keeping up with such a rate of explosive data growth. A hybrid cloud combining two or more clouds is emerging as an appealing alternative to expand local/private systems. However, the effective use of such an expanded cloud system is limited primarily by low network bandwidth and high latency between clouds (i.e., large intercloud data transmission overheads) when applications/services span across clouds, and they deal with large data in particular.
