  1. 1. Cloud Interoperability Accessibility Openness CIAO Cloud, Interoperability, Accessibility and Openness in public administrations Brussels, 7 April 2011 Flavia Marzano flavia (dot) marzano (@) gmail (dot) com Flavia Marzano Open Source: Its place in a cross-border environment
  2. 2. Cloud Interoperability Accessibility Openness Neelie Kroes •  The European commissioner in charge of Europe’s digital agenda said data protection, interoperability and standardization are three of the core objectives of her policies. •  Users must be able to change their cloud provider easily •  Open specifications are a key in creating competitive and flourishing markets that deliver what customers need Flavia Marzano Open Source: Its place in a cross-border environment
  3. 3. Cloud Interoperability Accessibility Openness …and I add… …to data protection, interoperability and standardisation: •  Accessibility: web accessibility and e- inclusion) •  Openness: Open interface (open protocols, open API), open formats (ODF), open data (CC licenses, open knowledge), open source… Flavia Marzano Open Source: Its place in a cross-border environment
  4. 4. Cloud Interoperability Accessibility Openness OCCI Vision: open ecosystem Flavia Marzano Open Source: Its place in a cross-border environment
  5. 5. Cloud Interoperability Accessibility Openness What do we also need •  Allowing people to move applications from a SaaS, PaaS or IaaS provider to another •  Data, code and application portability •  available programming languages and libraries •  Knowing where web applications (PaaS), virtual servers (IaaS), and data are •  No vendor lock-in on data, tools, and software •  Security and Privacy Flavia Marzano Open Source: Its place in a cross-border environment
  6. 6. Cloud Interoperability Accessibility Openness What do we also need •  Integration with internal applications •  Performances, liability, Flexibility •  Regulations… local regulations (many countries have strict privacy laws that prohibit certain data from being stored on a physical machine located outside that country) •  Cost transparency •  Choice Flavia Marzano Open Source: Its place in a cross-border environment
  7. 7. Cloud Interoperability Accessibility Openness Principles of Open Cloud http://www.opencloudmanifesto.org 1.  Cloud providers must work together to ensure that the challenges to cloud adoption (security, integration, portability, interoperability, governance/management, metering/monitoring) are addressed through open collaboration and the appropriate use of standards. 2.  Cloud providers must not use their market position to lock customers into their particular platforms and limit their choice of providers. 3.  Cloud providers must use and adopt existing standards wherever appropriate. The IT industry has invested heavily in existing standards and standards organizations; there is no need to duplicate or reinvent them.

  8. 8. Cloud Interoperability Accessibility Openness Principles of Open Cloud http://www.opencloudmanifesto.org 4.  When new standards (or adjustments to existing standards) are needed, we must be judicious and pragmatic to avoid creating too many standards. We must ensure that standards promote innovation and do not inhibit it. 5.  Any community effort around the open cloud should be driven by customer needs, not merely the technical needs of cloud providers, and should be tested or verified against real customer requirements. 6.  Cloud computing standards organizations, advocacy groups, and communities should work together and stay coordinated, making sure that efforts do not conflict or overlap.
