Cloud Interoperability Project Creates New Cloud Standard

Introduction

The Cloud Interoperability Project (CIP), a joint industry effort to create a cloud service portability and interoperability standard, today released its specification for public comment. The CIP represents a joint industry effort to create a cloud standard that will enable data portability between clouds and cloud substrate providers. In other words, the CIP standard defines how users can access multiple services from multiple providers using HTTP/S (Secure). These interfaces are designed to provide a consistent way for users to access multiple services from multiple providers. The specification also provides guidance on how to use these services as part of an open, secure and vendor-neutral ecosystem that will enable mutual trust between users, developers and vendors.”

Today, the Cloud Interoperability Project (CIP) released a specification for a cloud service portability and interoperability standard. The CIP represents a joint industry effort to create a cloud standard that will enable data portability between clouds and cloud substrate providers, with the ultimate goal of improving overall cloud portability and interoperability among leading cloud providers.

This new specification is designed as an open source project under the direction of an independent governing board comprised of representatives from leading public and private cloud providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Apple Inc., Digital Cloud Platform Group at IBM Corp., Microsoft Corp., Oracle Corp., Salesforce Inc., SAP SE/SuccessFactors Inc., VMware Inc.

The CIP standard defines a set of interfaces used to support communication between cloud consumers and providers using HTTP/S (Secure).

The CIP standard defines a set of interfaces used to support communication between cloud consumers and providers using HTTP/S (Secure). The standard also specifies how these services can be accessed as part of an open, secure and vendor-neutral ecosystem that will enable mutual trust between users, developers, and vendors.

This new cloud standard offers key benefits for users of public clouds:

  • Improved security – Cloud interoperability will allow users to access multiple clouds through a single interface with strong encryption for data in transit or at rest; improved security features such as multifactor authentication; enhanced identity management capabilities through integration with existing corporate identity systems; seamless integration with existing enterprise applications such as email clients or office productivity suites

These interfaces are designed to provide a consistent way for users to access multiple services from multiple providers.

The Cloud Interoperability Project is a multi-stakeholder initiative to define a set of standard interfaces for cloud services. These interfaces are designed to provide a consistent way for users to access multiple services from multiple providers. The specification provides guidance on how to use these services as part of an open, secure and vendor-neutral ecosystem.

The CIP Working Group (WG) has published the first version of CIP 1.0, which defines the core set of functionality needed by all clouds: provisioning, managing and configuring virtual machines (VMs); attaching persistent storage; spinning up new VMs on demand; accessing public clouds; migrating VMs between different providers’ infrastructure; accessing data stored in public clouds using standard protocols such as RESTful web services over HTTP/S

The specification also provides guidance on how to use these services as part of an open, secure and vendor-neutral ecosystem that will enable mutual trust between users, developers and vendors.

The specifications define an interface layer between cloud services and applications. This allows users to move their applications across multiple service providers without needing to rewrite them.

The CIP specification offers an interface layer through which users can move their applications across multiple service providers without needing to rewrite their applications or change their SMTP addresses.

The Cloud Interoperability Project (CIP) is a global initiative to create an open and interoperable cloud standards framework. The CIP specification offers an interface layer through which users can move their applications across multiple service providers without needing to rewrite their applications or change their SMTP addresses.

The CIP specification provides guidance on how to use these services as part of an open, secure and vendor-neutral ecosystem that will enable mutual trust between users, developers and vendors.

Conclusion

The CIP specification offers an interface layer through which users can move their applications across multiple service providers without needing to rewrite their applications or change their SMTP addresses.
