IEEE P2302 Working Group (Intercloud)
working group will develop the Standard for Intercloud Interoperability
and Federation (SIIF). This standard defines topology, functions, and
governance for cloud-to-cloud interoperability and federation.
Topological elements include clouds, roots, exchanges (which mediate
governance between clouds), and gateways (which mediate data exchange
between clouds). Functional elements include name spaces, presence,
messaging, resource ontologies (including standardized units of
measurement), and trust infrastructure. Governance elements include
registration, geo-independence, trust anchor, and potentially
compliance and audit. The standard does not address intra-cloud (within
cloud) operation, as this is cloud implementation-specific, nor does it
address proprietary hybrid-cloud implementations.
creates an economy amongst cloud providers that is transparent to users
and applications, which provides for a dynamic infrastructure that can
support evolving business models. In addition to the technical issues,
appropriate infrastructure for economic audit and settlement must exist.
