intercloud


Also found in: Dictionary, Wikipedia.

intercloud

A theoretical network that would allow cloud providers to leverage resources from other cloud providers. Just as the Internet is the interconnection of millions of servers, the intercloud would enable datacenters to communicate with other datacenters when required. For decades, telephone companies have operated as an intercloud, interfacing with other telecom networks in territories where they have no presence. See datacenter in a box.
