With the development of cloud computing technology, it is necessary to integrate multiple cloud computing service providers. Cloud computing federation is a kind of cloud model which integrates multiple cloud computing service providers, provides the cooperation between them and mutual operation mechanism, improves the service quality and implements the corresponding strategy. It has become one of hot research topics at present. The paper summarizes the demand at first and discusses the significance of cloud computing federation. Secondly, we introduce the related research in this field, pointing out the problems existed in the current study. Then, the paper puts forward a cloud computing federation model based on the theory of complex network, at the same time supporting vertical scaling and horizontal extension according to the study, what’s more, the strategies of node join and leave are put forward. Finally, on the basis of above, the paper has carried out the qualitative analysis for the model.
