Interoperability Profiles (CPIP), IEEE Under Development Service Interoperability IEEE P2302, Draft Standard for Intercloud Interoperability and Federation (SIIF), IEEE Under Development Table 6 – Interoperability: Categorization 6.3 Portability Standards Mapping As discussed in Clause 5.4, portability issues in the cloud include workload and data portability. While some of the cloud workload portability issues are new, a lot of existing data and metadata standards have been developed before the cloud era. The following table focuses on cloud-specific portability standards. Categorization Available Standards and SDO Status Data Portability Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI); SNIA Approved Standard Open Virtualization Format (OVF); DMTF Approved Standard Market Acceptance System Portability IEEE P2301, Draft Guide for Cloud Portability and Interoperability Profiles (CPIP), IEEE Under Development Table 7 – Portability: Categorization 6.4 Use Case Analysis There are several facets of cloud service interfaces that are candidates for standardization including: Management APIs; Data Exchange Formats; Federated Identity and Security Policy APIs; Resource Descriptions; and Data Storage APIs. With these candidate areas in mind, the following business use cases can be analyzed with regard to their possible deployment modes (as discussed in Clause 4.3) to identify required standards. This analysis, in conjunction with the NIST Cloud Standards Inventory, enables the availability of relevant existing and emerging standards to be evaluated. Where no suitable standards of any kind exist, this is a gap. As part of this use case analysis, the priority of the standards or requirements in question is also identified.

NIST Cloud Computing Standards Roadmap NIST SP500 291 v1.0 46 6.4.1 Use Case: Creating, accessing, updating, deleting data objects in clouds Benefits : Cross-cloud applications Deployment Mode Considerations : Basic Create-Read-Update-Delete (CRUD) operations on data objects will primarily be done between a single client and provider, and should observe any required standards for authentication and authorization. Standardizations Needed : Standard interfaces to metadata and data objects Possible Standards : CDMI from SNIA 6.4.2 Use Case: Moving VMs and virtual appliances between clouds Benefits : Migration, Hybrid Clouds, Disaster Recovery, Cloudbursting Deployment Mode Considerations : When moving a VM out of one cloud and into another as two separate actions, conceivably two different ID management systems could be used. When moving VMs in a truly hybrid cloud, however, federated ID management standards will be needed. Standardizations Needed : Common VM description format Possible Standards : OVF from DMTF; OpenID, Oauth 6.4.3 Use Case: Selecting the best IaaS cloud vendor, public or private Benefits : Provide cost-effective reliable deployments Deployment Mode Considerations : When considering hybrid or distributed (inter)cloud deployments, uniform and consistent resource, performance, and policy descriptions are needed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
