Current initiatives in cloud computing interoperability


Gonidis [Gon11] defines an approach on how to enable interoperability for PaaS solutions. It is about building a standard for existing cloud platforms. However, this is a challenge given that every platform provider has it’s own proprietary API. Furthermore, services available on the one platform aren’t available on the other platform. In the following posts, existing interoperability frameworks, solutions and standards for Platform as a Service are evaluated.

Standard initiatives

Current standard initiatives are the Open Cloud Computing Interface (OCCI) and the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) initiatives. In the next posts, I will outline them in detail.

Libraries and Frameworks

Libraries and Frameworks for Cloud Interoperability are: Apache jClouds and Libcloud. They will be described in the following posts.

Middleware solutions

Middleware Solutions for Cloud interoperability are: mOSAIC, PaaS Semantic Interoperability Framework (PSIF), Frascati-based Multi PaaS Solution and SimpleCloud. They will be described in the following posts.

I work as Big Data Architect for Microsoft. With this role, I support my customers in applying Big Data technologies - mainly Hadoop/Spark - for their use-cases. I also teach this topic at various universities and frequently speak at various Conferences. In 2010 I wrote a book about Cloud Computing, which is often used at German & Austrian Universities. In my home country (Austria) I am part of several organisations on Big Data.
