Given the rapid uptake and the great diversity of PaaS offerings, understanding semantic interoperability at the PaaS level is essential for supporting inter-Cloud cooperation, seamless information exchange and application and data portability. In this vein, this paper introduces a PaaS semantic interoperability framework (PSIF). PSIF studies, models and tries to resolve semantic interoperability conflicts raised during the deployment or the migration of an application by defining the following dimensions: Fundamental PaaS Entities, Types of Semantics, and Levels of Semantic Conflicts. In the context of this paper, the development of common PaaS models and standardized management interfaces are raised as primary requirements in this context. PaaS architectures can then be augmented with a semantic layer that would host the common models and would be the link between heterogeneous PaaS offerings.
