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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
