Wired Planet: Cloud Computing Interoperability
By alkagupta on Dec 04, 2008
In some of my earlier Blog entries, I have mentioned the need for Cloud Interoperability, in order to prevent cloud vendor lockin. I am glad to see some industry movement in that direction. Cloud Computing Interoperability Forum (CCIF) was formed recently and is a group of industry stakeholders that are active in cloud computing. Its objective is to enable a global cloud computing ecosystem whereby organizations are able to seamlessly work together for the purposes for wider industry adoption of cloud computing technology and related services. A key focus will be placed on the creation of a common agreed upon framework / ontology that enables the ability of two or more cloud platforms to exchange information in an unified manor.
Encourage everybody to contribute and participate as appropriate.
