Cloud Computing and Cloud Storage Standards

All of our work at the Cloud Storage technical working group in the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) has been coming together, and we are nearing a public release of the Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI).

We've also been working with the Open Grid Focum (OGF) on making it such that CDMI can be used in conjunction with the OCCI standard to manage data storage in cloud computing environments, and there are some exciting possibilities of combining CDMI with the VMWare vCloud standard that was recently donated as a potential industry standard to the DMTF.

You can read our joint whitepaper on CDMI and OCCI at the below URI:


If any readers have any questions about CDMI and how it facilitates cloud computing, please don't hesitate to comment!
