Abstract: -The greatest challenge that is making cloud services untrusty and insecure is portability and interoperability between clouds. Cloud is the latest environment that bring new oppurtunities to the people. The enterprises started to adopt cloud computing to reduce operating and owing cost for communication technology. Also other benefits like increased reliability, decreased latency and on demand scaling are available in cloud computing. The cloud computing industry, cloud service providers are responsible for making sure that the hardware and software components are working together to provide the service requested by the customer in the Service Level Agreement (SLA). This paper mainly consists of challenges regarding vendor lock-in problem and new ways of overcoming it. Cloud portability refers to the ability to move cloud applications from one cloud to another which reduces vendor lock-in problem. Interoperability provides exchange of information between organizations.
