A rich cloud ecosystem is unfolding with clouds emerging to provide platforms and services of many shapes and sizes. We speculate that future network applications may wish to utilize and synthesize capabilities from multiple clouds. The problem is this may entail significant data communication that derives from the client-server paradigm imposed by most clouds. To address this bottleneck, we propose a cloud proxy network that allows optimized data-centric operations to be performed at strategic network locations. We show the potential of this architecture for accelerating cloud applications.
