A first party, such as a residential subscriber to an Internet Service Provider (ISP), logically partitions its computing resources into an end user partition and a crowd sourced cloud partition. The first party installs a crowd sourced cloud application in each cloud partition. Together, a cloud provider computing system and each cloud application orchestrate cloud services over a communications network, such as the Internet. For each crowd sourced cloud application, orchestration involves registering cloud services with the cloud provider, provisioning each registered cloud service that is requested by the cloud provider, and operating each provisioned service. For the cloud provider, orchestration involves publishing each registered service as available to crowd sourced cloud users, receiving requests for cloud services from a crowd sourced cloud user, and requesting, from a crowd sourced cloud application, a registered service responsive to the request for cloud services.
