Sperb Machado, G; Hausheer, D; Stiller, B (2009). Considerations on the Interoperability of and between Cloud Computing Standards. In: 27th Open Grid Forum (OGF27), G2C-Net Workshop: From Grid to Cloud Networks, Banff, Canada, 12 October 2009 - 15 October 2009.

Abstract

Cloud computing has gaining importance in the recent past due to the conjunction of well-known key features, such as virtualization and pay-by-use, which together form an innovative concept. Even if cloud computing does not have a widely accepted definition, it has been used for many companies to deploy its infrastructures and promote their business. However, the lack of standards seems to be a drawback related to interoperability and optimization issues.
Convenient actions like changing cloud providers, and/or exchange data/information between clouds may be an arduous work for its customers. Therefore, this paper presents major considerations regarding the lack of cloud standards and pointing why this is considered to be a problem. Furthermore, scenarios are discussed, which are desired to make use of cloud interoperabilityand which are currently initiatives addressing cloud standards issues. This leads to a set of important observations towards a solution solving the interoperability and standardization problem.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
