    Inter-clouds as a recently emerged approach has been introduced as to expand the cloud capabilities and to challenge the level of the cloud elasticity in services. By facilitating an opportunistic environment, it aims to consistently realise a scalable resource provisioning setting that handles sudden variation in user demands. Herein we propose an architectural strategy for scheduling jobs in inter-enterprises with a particular focus to inter-clouds. The scheduling concept is based on the meta-computing paradigm, with the purpose of establishing a wide and decentralized policy control among various resources and resource owners. To this extend, we start with presenting an analysis of the cloud characteristics and inter-cloud requirements. Following this, we present an identification of the most critical issues when developing the strategy based on the functional requirements analysis. This has led to the development of a strategic plan which provides the architecture for an interoperable, efficient and flexible environment to support the inter-cooperation between heterogeneous inter-enterprises.
