The Open Virtualization Format (OVF): A Building Block for Cloud

Presented by

Winston Bumpus, DMTF President

About this talk

The Open Virtualization Format(OVF) - A Building block for Cloud Interoperability As virtualization technology continues to be more rapidly adopted, it is emerging as a common enabling foundation for delivering software solutions into IT environments along with the potential to lower IT costs and improve operational efficiencies. While deploying virtualization technologies it is also critical to have comprehensive management capabilities associated with the implementation. Along with the adoption of virtualization, more and more enterprise IT customers are looking at the cloud computing paradigm to better deliver services to their customers. No specific standards currently exist for enabling interoperability between private clouds within enterprises and hosted or public cloud providers. DMTF's Open Cloud Standards Incubator will focus on addressing these issues by developing cloud resource management protocols, packaging formats and security mechanisms to facilitate interoperability. This session will discuss the currently launched DMTF Open Cloud Incubator and discuss how the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) will be a key building block for cloud computing interoperability
