Cloud computing offers a development platform with many benefits such as low cost application development and deployment along with minimization of maintenance and upgrades. Despite the technology’s numerous advantages, health care and other application fields related with sensitive and confidential information have been reluctant to seize its offerings. This is because of the requirement for data processing data on remote cloud datacenters and therefore the transferring of sensitive data over the Internet. A solution to this problem is the reverse cloud approach that allows software to be transferred near to the data source and to be instantiated into a new cloud environment in order to eliminate the problems of processing sensitive data remotely. This encompasses the concept of virtual machine migration for cloud federations that are composed by various OpenStack systems. To achieve this we developed an innovative software to data service that allows virtual machines in the form of running instances or images to be migrated between OpenStack environments. Further, the service allows easily reconfiguration (regarding hardware features) along with monitoring and calculating of virtual machine use in the OpenStack federation.
