Cloud computing is getting mature, and the interoperability and standardization of the clouds is still waiting to be solved. This paper discussed the interoperability among clouds about message transmission, data transmission and virtual machine transfer. Starting from IEEE Pioneering Cloud Computing Initiative, this paper discussed about standardization of the cloud computing, especially inter-cloud cloud computing. This paper also discussed the standardization from the market-oriented view. With cloud computing applications being used more and more widely, there becomes more and more cloud computing service providers. However, whether the cloud computing services provided by different providers can interoperate, whether them have a common interface, has become a problem to be solved.
