This session will look at the use cases developed by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in collaboration with the public to drive interoperability, portability and security of cloud computing. A panel of key representatives from NIST as well as several industry standards organizations, including the DMTF, SNIA and the Cloud Security Alliance will discuss their work as it pertains to these use cases. The discussion will cover portable workloads and standardized interfaces for cloud computing. The goal of cloud standards is to improve cloud consumer agility and define a set of architectural semantics that unify the interoperable management of workloads and resources between enterprises of all sizes and cloud computing infrastructures.
