Craig Lee Driving Cloud Progress Final

  1. 1. Driving Coordination and Progress in Cloud Standards cloud-standards.org Dr. Craig A. Lee President, Open Grid Forum NCOIC Plenary Meeting, September 21, 2009
  2. 2. Why Standardize?  Need for commonality and best practices across a significant user community – Interoperability & Portability – Reduce engineering costs  Technical Requirements – Feasible & appropriate to codify in the technical design  Marketplace Drivers – User community must have critical mass – Standardization must be seen as “growing the market” for everybody!  Genuine standardization with wide-scale adoption will only occur when all of these conditions are met 2
  3. 3. How Do We Make This Happen?  Drive Coordination – Stakeholders – Vendors – Standards Organizations  Drive Progress – Identify key requirements/goals – Plan key projects – Provision with time, money & people
  4. 4. cloud-standards.org  An informal group of Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) collaborating to coordinate and communicate standards for cloud computing and storage – Wiki: cloud-standards.org – Mailing List: groups.google.com/group/CloudStandards  Different SDOs bring different but complementary technologies & capabilities – Storage, execution models, deployment models, service level agreements, security, authentication, privacy  All interested, committed persons and organizations with relevant technical skills can participate  A Little History – Enterprise Cloud Conference, Open Group, Feb. 3, San Diego – SATCCI, OMG, March 23, Arlington/Crystal City – Cloud Standards Summit, OMG, July 13, Arlington/Ballston
  5. 5. Leading Organizations Open Cloud Consortium Courtesy Richard Soley, OMG
  6. 6. Federal Cloud Symposium National Defense University, July 15
  7. 7. Standardization Areas Briefed at Federal Cloud Symposium  Security (e.g. authentication, authorization)  Interfaces to IaaS (e.g., compute, storage)  PaaS & deployment formats for Cloud applications – Resource descriptions (required, available) – Service & SLA models  Management Frameworks – Governance and Policy Enforcement – Regulatory agreements (e.g. data location and security) – SLA formats (e.g. performance, availability)  Portable component descriptions (e.g. VM’s)  Data exchange formats (to and from Clouds)  Cloud Taxonomies and Reference Models Courtesy Richard Soley, OMG

  9. 9. OGF OCCI Open Cloud Computing Interface  Commitments for three implementations – OpenNebula, SLA@SOI, anonymous

  11. 11. SNIA CDMI Cloud Data Mgmt Interface Cloud Data Management Interface for Cloud Storage CDMI early draft available
  12. 12. Example of Coordination • Joint whitepaper published this month by OGF and SNIA • Covers how OCCI and CDMI are being designed to work together • Available on both OGF and SNIA web sites
  13. 13. Driving Progress  Build Critical Mass of Key Stakeholders – Continual polling and coordination across the community  Must Forge Agreement on: – Clear Goals – Clear Schedule (“time-box” the process) – Clear Responsibilities – Properly Provisioning the Effort 13
  14. 14. A General Process Model Task A Concept Development Task B RFQ/CFP* Development Stakeholders Help Manage Task C Selection & Kick-off SDOs Help Facilitate Task D Develop & Test Task E Clear Schedule, Deliverables Deploy & and Project Responsibilities Persist 14 14
  15. 15. Return on Investment  What are the “carrots” to get concrete stakeholder engagement? – Get early influence in specification development, early skills building, visibility, and opportunity for early market deployment of standards, but just as important… – Return on Investment (ROI)  Investment – Time, Money & People – Both Monetary and In-Kind (labor & materials)  Timely Connection to Concrete Results – Stakeholders benefit from collaboration – Get more than they put in 15
  16. 16. A Proposal  cloud-standards.org to organize a set of open cloud demonstrations  Engage stakeholders on demo scenarios  US Cloud Storefront  UK G-Cloud  Japanese Kasumigaseki Cloud  Identify testbed resources  Identify target demo venues  Build schedule appropriately  Provision money & people appropriately  Caveat: Every element here is critical
  17. 17. Summary  cloud-standards.org formed to coordinate SDOs  Ongoing work on open cloud standards for – APIs, formats, data, security, and more …  Process described that could be used to drive: – Best common practices & standards – Interoperability testing & compliance testing – … anything that requires collaboration among stakeholders to drive progress  Major stakeholder engagement is critical to drive further progress 17 17
