Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide

Presented by

Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC)

About this talk

One of the biggest problems facing cloud adoption is cloud interoperability. The topics of interoperability and portability are significant considerations in relation to the use of cloud services, but there is confusion and misunderstanding of exactly what this entails. Cloud portability, the ability to move applications and data from one cloud computing environment to the other, is becoming increasingly difficult for those with multiple cloud providers. This guide provides a clear definition of interoperability and portability and how these relate to various aspects of cloud computing and to cloud services. This webinar will describe interoperability and portability in terms of a set of common cloud computing scenarios, including emerging standards and initiatives. This approach assists in demonstrating that both interoperability and portability have multiple aspects and relate to a number of different components in the architecture of cloud computing, each of which needs to be considered in its own right. The aim is to give both cloud service customers and cloud service providers guidance in the provision and selection of cloud services indicating how interoperability and portability affect the cost, security and risk involved.
