How can I connect my private Openstack to a public cloud such as Amazon?

I have a private openstack installed on my cluster working just fine. I am wondering to connect this private cloud to a public cloud such as Amazon, Azure or Rackspace to make it a hybrid cloud. My purpose is to provide elasticity for my resources so that if I am running out of resources in my cluster, new requests for launching VMs would be automatically forwarded to a public cloud and this process remains transparent for the user.

Is it currently possible? Is there any middle-ware that can handle this stuff?

I was wondering that since Rackspace is also using Openstack, it might be easier for my private cloud to connect. Is this true? or technically my hybrid cloud can be connected to any type of cloud infrastructure?

I'm using Havana on CentOS.
