  2. 2. About the Open Grid Forum: Open Grid Forum (OGF) is a leading global standards development organization operating in the areas of cloud, grid and related forms of advanced distributed computing. The OGF community pursues these topics through an open process for development, creation and promotion of relevant specifications and use cases. OGF actively engages partners and participants throughout the international arena through an open forum with open processes to champion architectural blueprints related to cloud and grid computing. The resulting specifications and standards enable pervasive adoption of advanced distributed computing techniques for business and research worldwide. © 2012 Open Grid Forum Cloudscape V Brussels, Belgium Feb. 28, 2013 2Thursday, February 28, 13
