While there have been significant gains, developing cloud standards that promote interoperability is a crucial next step. This article details the benefits of such standards and looks at how they are being enabled.
The Distributed Management Task Force has released a spec to standardize infrastructure management.
Interoperability remains a critical issue for groups advocating that users and vendors alike require a healthy, open ecosystem to drive greater adoption rates but the standardization for portability has been slow in coming. Groups like the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) are working together with other standards bodies to create a better cloud as the organization’s president discusses during an interview following news of OVF standardization–a first step for workload portability standards.
The Distrobuted Management Task Force (DMTF), the force behind the Open Cloud Standards project has emerged with additional documents and workshop series to step closer to the goal of increased cloud standardization.
