Collaboration aims to take cloud standards forward

DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) and Global Inter-Cloud Technology Forum (GICTF) have announced a partnership to collaborate on the development and adoption of cloud management standards.

GITCF, organized with the approval of Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japan, is a non-profit organization for the development and standardization of cloud computing technologies and interfaces to achieve inter-cloud collaboration. DMTF has been working to develop and promote cloud standards, such as the Cloud Infrastructure Management Interface (CIMI) through their cloud management initiative, which includes contributions from various working groups.

Through this alliance partnership, the two organizations will collaborate on cloud standards development to coordinate their cloud model/terminology and their inter-cloud management use cases and resource models.
