In the span of a decade, innovations in cloud computing have led to a new understanding of computing to be used as a utility. Majority of cloud service providers are making the service better and competitive for end-user. Aside from the number of services introduced by these providers, users are feeling uneasy and are unaware of consequences while switching from one service to another. Internal architecture of the cloud makes it difficult for end-users to understand. To overcome this issue a new concept of multi-cloud has been introduced. In multi-cloud technology, we can use multiple clouds from different vendors without platform complexity. Hence summarized, Multi-cloud is the usage of autonomous cloud platforms with one interface which may clue to different administrative and implementation domains. This paper reviews the literature of recently presented solutions and architectures for multi-cloud platforms.
