Attached documents explain how to achieve Image Portability between different clouds/VM systems.

The objective is to be able to migrate VMs from one system/cloud to the other, describing the processes and defining appropriate workflows.

The following systems need to be considered:

FNAL Private 'clouds'
- VMWARE (managed by CCD)
- GPCF (managed by FEF)
- VirtualBox (desktop virtualization)

Public/generic clouds
- OpenNebula (newer versions, like 4.0)
- OpenStack
- Amazon EC2 (this should be similar to Eucaliptus)
