Cloud computing is one the most relevant computing paradigms available nowadays. Its adoption has increased during last years due to the large investment and research from business enterprises and academia institutions. Among all the services cloud providers usually offer, Infrastructure as a Service has reached its momentum for solving HPC problems in a more dynamic way without the need of expensive investments. The integration of a large number of providers is a major goal as it enables the improvement of the quality of the selected resources in terms of pricing, speed, redundancy, etc. In this paper, we propose a system architecture, based on semantic solutions, to build an interoperable scheduler for federated clouds that works with several IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) providers in a uniform way. Based on this architecture we implement a proof-of-concept prototype and test it with two different cloud solutions to provide some experimental results about the viability of our approach.
