Cloud computing being the latest powerful way of storing data and hiring services on a server with no burden of hardware procurement. The facility to access data from the comfort of office without having the server physically has raised huge interest in the industry. Number of new cloud service providers has emerged with their own agreements and business models. Over a period of time clients have showed a proclivity towards switching cloud service providers for various reasons ranging from cost, efficiency, nature of business, operability, services, uptime and so on. There are clients who wish to draw more benefit from having multi cloud operations again due to various business reasons. This leads to need of amalgamation of clouds, interfaces between clouds, Application Programming Interfaces (API), collaboration of services and so on. This paper presents the existing different approaches so far which are popular along with the need for further research with respect to semantics, stndard and framework of cloud for interoperability. There are however semantic, standard and Framework endeavors are deficient. The objective of the research is to feature the difficulties changes needed in the semantic of cloud for operating on multi clouds distinguishing semantic, standard and Framework activity that would be expected for relocating and coordinating services in the multi-cloud environment sooner rather than later.
