OWF12/Open Standards for Cloud - Eu cloud strategy_sde_20121012

  1. 1. European CloudComputing StrategyOpen and interoperableclouds are possible Sandro DElia European Commission Directorate General CONNECT Unit Software & Services, Cloud Computing
  2. 2. European Cloud StrategyThree key actions:1.Cutting through the Jungle of Standards2.Safe and Fair Contract Terms and Conditions3.Promoting Common Public Sector Leadership through a Standards are everywhere! Standards are everywhere! European Cloud Partnership
  3. 3. Cutting through the jungle of standardsThe problem• "clouds may develop in a way that lacks interoperability, data portability and reversibility"• "independent, trusted certification is needed"
  4. 4. Cutting through the jungle of standardsThe objective Standards which are really needed, and meet the needs of users But how do you "crash test" a Cloud? But how do you "crash test" a Cloud?
  5. 5. Cutting through the jungle of standardsThe actions• "ETSI to coordinate with stakeholders in a transparent and open way to identify by 2013 a detailed map of the necessary standards (inter alia for security, interoperability, data portability and reversibility)" ETSI is historically a Telecommunications standards institute. ETSI is historically a Telecommunications standards institute. With the Cloud strategy ETSI gets the job to extend its usual perspective With the Cloud strategy ETSI gets the job to extend its usual perspective and to involve all the stakeholders interested in Cloud computing and to involve all the stakeholders interested in Cloud computing
  6. 6. Cutting through the jungle of standardsThe actions• "ETSI to coordinate with stakeholders in a transparent and open way to identify by 2013 a detailed map of the necessary standards (inter alia for security, interoperability, data portability and reversibility)"• "Enhance trust in cloud computing services by recognising at EU-level technical specifications in the field of information and communication technologies for the protection of personal information" The Regulation on European Standardisation (approved by the The Regulation on European Standardisation (approved by the Parliament in Sept. 2012) includes rules to allow recognition of technical Parliament in Sept. 2012) includes rules to allow recognition of technical specifications ("fora and consortia standards") at EU level, through specifications ("fora and consortia standards") at EU level, through the ICT Standardisation policy multi-stakeholder platform. the ICT Standardisation policy multi-stakeholder platform. ETSI is a member of the platform ETSI is a member of the platform
  7. 7. Cutting through the jungle of standardsThe actions• "ETSI to coordinate with stakeholders in a transparent and open way to identify by 2013 a detailed map of the necessary standards (inter alia for security, interoperability, data portability and reversibility)"• "Enhance trust in cloud computing services by recognising at EU-level technical specifications in the field of information and communication technologies for the protection of personal information"• "ENISA and other relevant bodies to assist the development of EU-wide voluntary certification schemes in the area of cloud computing (including as regards data protection)" Certification in data protection will be supported Certification in data protection will be supported
  8. 8. Cutting through the jungle of standardsThe actions• "ETSI to coordinate with stakeholders in a transparent and open way to identify by 2013 a detailed map of the necessary standards (inter alia for security, interoperability, data portability and reversibility)"• "Enhance trust in cloud computing services by recognising at EU-level technical specifications in the field of information and communication technologies for the protection of personal information"• "ENISA and other relevant bodies to assist the development of EU-wide voluntary certification schemes in the area of cloud computing (including as regards data protection)"• "harmonised metrics for the energy consumption, water consumption and carbon emissions of cloud services" Environmental impact will become an Environmental impact will become an important criterion in Cloud market important criterion in Cloud market
  9. 9. European Cloud PartnershipThe problem• "public sector market fragmented", "services integration is low and citizens do not get the best value for money"The objective• "Bring together industry expertise and public sector users to work on common procurement requirements for cloud computing in an open and fully transparent way" …and others…
  10. 10. European Cloud PartnershipThe actionsThe ECP will, under the guidance of a steering board bring together cooperating public authorities working with industry consortia to implement a pre-commercial procurement action to:• "Identify public sector cloud requirements; develop specifications for IT• procurement and procure reference implementations to demonstrate• conformance and performance"• "Advance towards joint procurement of cloud computing services by public• bodies based on the emerging common user requirements"• "Set up and execute other actions requiring coordination with stakeholders" NO European super-Cloud !!! NO European super-Cloud !!!
  11. 11. European Cloud Strategy - conclusion• Closed models and vendor lock-in are a danger for Cloud model take-up• Appropriate standards and certification schemes need to be identified• The Public sector has an important role for the shaping of the Cloud computing market
