Cloud computing, a TCP/IP based development, is essentially an integration of computer technologies such as HPC, massive memory resource handling, high-speed networks and reliable system architecture. A unified definition of cloud computing doesn’t exist with researchers and industrialists globally having listed up to 22 definitions to provide a comprehensive analysis of all the characteristics of Cloud Computing. However Cloud Computing mainly entails as a service that is outsourced, and does not symbolically represent a cloud as we observe in Nature. Classified exhaustively, clouds fit into the following categories—public, private, community and hybrid—however, without much exclusivity. This chapter views the emblem of cloud computing from a different perspective by emulating the geographical cloud as it appears in nature with properties of abstraction and virtualization. The chapter further introduces a first of its kind concept of Cloud Communications. To the best of our knowledge this is an archetype approach of incorporating the communications infrastructure into the cloud. The chapter proposes a Green Symbiotic Cloud (GSC) paradigm, which is an amalgamation of all sorts of clouds, with the elimination/minimization of reliance on data-centers, agent-based cooperative approaches and self-managed platforms inherent to systems of the future. Backed by concepts of abstraction and virtualized infrastructure and shared resource pools in one’s own local area network, the proposed paradigm offers impetus to revolutionize cloud computing. Taking virtualization to an entirely new level by offering a more local, energy-efficient, synergistic system comprised of individual agents sharing not just resources but knowledge/intelligence in the cloud, it basically emulates the cloud as it appears in nature.
