Migrating between different public clouds

My question will be about the possibility of migrating the instances between different cloud providers...

I know that building a hybrid cloud between one private and one public cloud is possible. However, I could not find much about building a federated cloud between multiple cloud vendors by using OpenStack. My question here is can we set up an environment like "one private-multiple public" or "multiple-public with one primary cloud as the control dashboard"?

The reason I ask this question is I want to deploy an application on a public cloud by using OpenStack and migrate the components of the application such as LBs, databases, application servers, etc. by migrating the underlying VMs to other cloud vendors. Is this possible, if so what is the best way to do it?

I think manually you can do it. You can create a snapshot of your instance, then download using Glance, upload to your private cloud and you can run the same instance.
