DMTF, ETSI, OASIS, OCEAN, OGF, OW2 and SNIA announce Cloud Interoperability Week

15.05.2013
Standards organizations and open source communities DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force), ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute), OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards), the FP7 OCEAN (Open Cloud for Europe, JApan and beyoNd) project, OGF (Open Grid Forum), the OW2 global open source community and SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) announce today they are joining forces to organize the first Cloud Interoperability Week in Madrid, Spain, and Santa Clara, CA, USA the week of 16-20 September 2013.

The Cloud Interoperability Week will combine workshops, conferences, demonstrations and testing sessions to explore and extend the level of interoperability of different solutions with regards to existing standards, such as OCCI, CDMI, CIMI, OVF, and CAMP (please see below detailed information). This event continues the series of Cloud Plugfests launched in 2011 by SNIA and OGF and since joined by several other major organizations. The series is dedicated to the promotion of interoperability efforts for cloud standards-based software, services, frameworks, products and projects.

Standardization is the key enabler of interoperable cloud solutions. The Cloud Interoperability Week events will bring together developers and application communities to co-operate on approaches that enable interoperation. Both open source and commercial cloud projects are invited to take part in the workshop and testing sessions of Cloud Interoperability Week. Registration is free and open to any organization, with participation in testing subject to the terms of the participation agreement.

Cloud Interoperability Week will provide a unique insight into the current state of cloud standards implementations and use cases. This event is intended to accelerate the level of interoperability of different solutions and showcase how cloud standards work together.

Cloud Interoperability Week will be part of the SNIA Storage Developer Conference plugfest program held 16-19 September in Santa Clara, CA, and include events co-located with the European Grid Infrastructure Technical Forum and the 39th Open Grid Forum meeting 18-20 September at the Hotel Melia Castilla, in Madrid, Spain. The Cloud Interoperability Week is supported by the European Commission and by the participating organizations.

Developers interested in taking part in this challenging event can visit the Cloud Plugfest website at: http://www.cloudplugfest.org/cloud-interoperability-week

Im Focus: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

Im Focus: Developing reliable quantum computers

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
